Brief -- GOM Shut-Ins

Nearly one-third of Gulf of Mexico (GOM) oil production and 20.5% of natural gas remained shut-in at midday Wednesday, according to to operator reports submitted to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. The federal agency estimated 32.68% of the current oil output, or 571,854 b/d, remained offline, while 660.55 MMcf/d of gas was still shut-in nearly four days after Hurricane Nate landed on the central Gulf Coast. Based on operator reports, personnel remained evacuated from 36 production platforms, or 4.88%. Personnel also remained evacuated from one non-dynamically positioned (DP) drilling rig, equivalent to 5% of the 20 total. None of the 18 DPs that work in the GOM remained off location.
