Washington — About 1.3 million b/d, or 69%, of oil production and 1.7 Bcf/d, or 61%, of natural gas output in the Gulf of Mexico remains shut as drillers start returning to platforms evacuated ahead of Hurricane Barry, the US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said Monday.

BSEE said 267 platforms and 10 non-dynamically positioned rigs remain evacuated. All 20 dynamically positioned rigs operating in the Gulf have returned to their pre-storm sites, BSEE said.

The figures were based on operations reported to BSEE as of 11:30 am CDT (1630 GMT) Monday.

Factbox: Key infrastructure in US Gulf Coast reopens as storm Barry weakens

Drillers were starting to return to normal operations Sunday after Barry weakened to a tropical depression and moved further inland.

Anadarko said it has restarted production at its Marlin offshore facility, returned staff to its Constitution and Heidelberg platforms and expects to return staff to its Holstein and Marco Polo platforms later Monday.

"We expect to resume production at all of our operated facilities that were shut in due to Barry following platform assessments and availability of third-party infrastructure," Anadarko said Monday.

Shell said Sunday its crews and assets "weathered the storm well," however, it had to shut production at its Auger, Salsa and Enchilada assets and slow production at the Mars Corridor. It said it was working to resume normal output "as soon as is safely possible."

Chevron started returning staff and restoring output Sunday to its Big Foot, Blind Faith, Genesis, Jack St. Malo, Petronius and Tahiti platforms.
