Gulf of Mexico production returning to normal following storm

Offshore oil and gas operators in the Gulf of Mexico are resuming normal operations following Tropical Storm Michael.

The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) issue the final update on Tuesday, according to which personnel have returned to all of the previously evacuated production platforms and rigs.

“From operator reports, it is estimated that approximately 7.7 percent of the current oil production in the Gulf of Mexico remains shut-in. It is also estimated that approximately 3.5 percent of the natural gas production in the Gulf of Mexico remains shut-in,” BSEE said on Tuesday.

“Since the storm has passed, operators are inspecting their facilities. Once all standard checks have been completed, production from undamaged facilities will be brought back on line immediately. Facilities sustaining damage may take longer to bring back on line. A total of 3 platform damage reports have been submitted, citing missing grating,” BSEE said.
