BSEE: More Than 18% Of US Gulf Output Shut In By Harvey

More than 18 percent of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico was shut in on the 29th August due to Harvey, the US Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Safety Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) said.


That equates to some 319,523 barrels of oil per day, out of roughly 1.75 million barrels pumped daily from the Gulf.


The amount of production shut in was down from the 28th August, when more than 331,000 barrels were shut in.


Meanwhile, 19.1 percent of natural gas production in the region, or 615.09 million cubic feet per day, has been shut in, BSEE said.


BSEE tabulated the data by polling 31 Gulf operators.
