In the deepwater gulf, production has resumed from four of Kerr-McGee's five operated facilities.
* In the East Breaks area, production and sales from the Nansen and Boomvang areas are at pre-hurricane levels. * In the Garden Banks area, the Gunnison field has resumed oil sales. Natural gas sales from Gunnison are restricted by pipelines to 70% of pre-hurricane levels. * The Red Hawk field is awaiting start-up of associated third-party export lines. * At the Neptune field in the Viosca Knoll area of the gulf, natural gas wells are producing at normal rates and associated oil is being offloaded to a barge. Full production from the platform oil wells is dependant upon restoration of the oil export pipeline system. * Kerr-McGee also holds interests in the deepwater facilities at Baldpate and Conger, which have restarted production.
On the shelf, production is being brought on line as third-party onshore infrastructure is repaired.
The company is closely monitoring weather conditions impacting the Gulf of Mexico and will continue to take appropriate actions to ensure the safety of its workers and contractors and to protect the environment.
