More than half of US Gulf of Mexico oil, gas output remains shut during storm: BSEE

Washington — About 1.1 million b/d, or 59%, of oil production and 1.4 Bcf/d, or 49%, of natural gas output in the Gulf of Mexico remains shut-in as Tropical Storm Barry approaches the Louisiana coast, the US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said Friday.

BSEE said 257 platforms and 10 non-dynamically positioned rigs have been evacuated, and 11 dynamically positioned rigs have been moved off site.

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

The National Hurricane Center expects the center of Barry to make landfall over the central Louisiana coast on Saturday as a hurricane.

Barry could cut Gulf of Mexico crude production by an average of 140,000 b/d-230,000 b/d in July, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics estimates.

Offshore drillers including Chevron, Anadarko and BP started shuttering production Wednesday and evacuated staff from drilling platforms.

Phillips 66 shut its 253,600 b/d Alliance refinery in Belle Chasse outside New Orleans, while other Gulf Coast refiners said they are keeping an eye on the storm.
