In preparation for the storm, 75% of GEM's domestic production was shut in and all employees were safely evacuated. GEM has begun start-up operations and as of today is producing at approximately 55% of its pre-Katrina production level.
GEM continues to inspect and repair damage to its eastern Gulf operations that remain shut in which include, Main Pass, Point a la Hache, Branville Bay and Lapeyrouse. Restoration of remaining curtailed production is also dependent on resumption of downstream infrastructure and the availability of service and equipment contractors necessary for over-water transportation and repairs.
