The resumption of production from facilities affected by the storm will depend primarily on restoration of local communications, pipeline and processing plant services, transportation and other vital functions, as well as on drainage of floodwaters. Consequently, the timing of additional resumptions is still being assessed.
"We were very fortunate that this terrible storm caused so little damage to our facilities, and we intend to restore the shut-in production as soon as local conditions allow," said Bobby S. Shackouls, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "At the same time, the Burlington Resources Foundation is pledging substantial contributions to major relief agencies in the impacted areas and in Houston, which has been called upon to host a large number of evacuees. Our employees are also making significant individual pledges and hosting displaced friends and family members in their homes."
