(This information is up-to-date as of 10:00 A.M. Central, September 4, 2011.  Further updates will be provided as needed)

Given current weather forecasts, we have begun to redeploy personnel to our Central and Eastern Gulf facilities.

Production remains partially shut-in at some of our Central and Eastern Gulf asset locations.  Once crews return to evacuated platforms and rigs, they will ensure power and communication systems are functional and then begin to restart production and recommence drilling activities.  Production ramp up at each impacted facility will vary, but complete Gulf of Mexico production ramp up to pre-storm levels may take three to five days.  Our priorities continue to be ensuring the safety of personnel, protecting the environment and minimizing production and operational impact.

The information on this site will be updated as necessary.
