Petsec Says Vermilion 258 Platform Suffers Only Minor Damage
Petsec says Hurricane Rita passed over both the Vermilion 258 and West Cameron 352 platforms, which were both shut-in, in advance of the hurricane.
The Vermilion 258 platform suffered only minor damage. Recommencement of production is dependent on downstream pipelines operated by third parties which remain shut-in, but are anticipated to re-open late in the week.
Inspection of the West Cameron 343/352 platform is expected in the next two days.
Extensive coastal flooding will cause a delay of about one week to the installation of the
Main Pass 19 platform, now anticipated for late October.
