HOUSTON (Reuters) -Chevron Corp. said on Saturday it had recovered offshore workers who had been evacuated in the face of Tropical Storm Claudette from their production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.
Chevron (NYSE 🙂 said it is growing production on its Tahiti platform where production had been halted by the storm. Other Chevron-operated establishments in the Gulf are around normal levels, he said in a notice on his website https://www.chevron.com/media/updates.
Claudette landed in southeastern Louisiana early in the morning, disrupting oil and gas production in the central Gulf of Mexico and bringing strong tropical storm winds and heavy rains to parts of the Gulf Coast.
Earlier, the third largest oil producer in the Gulf of Mexico of the United States had withdrawn non-essential personnel from three platforms and completely evacuated a fourth.
