Nexen has shut-in approximately 45,000 boe/d of its Gulf of Mexico production, due
to deteriorating weather conditions from Hurricane Ivan. Gunnison and West
Cameron 170 are still producing, but may also be shut-in depending on Ivan's
path. We have also safely secured four drilling rigs working on company-
operated exploration and development projects. Personnel and associated
contract employees have been evacuated from the affected platforms. We will
return to full operations as soon as it is safe to do so.
