Chevron Says Several Platforms Suffer Damage as a Result of Ike

Chevron is currently assessing the affect of Hurricane Ike on its facilities. Reconnaissance flights indicate that some platforms have been affected, with several reported as toppled in the eastern and western shelf areas.

Chevron will mobilize appropriate resources to address any environmental concerns and notify appropriate regulatory agencies as required. The company is mobilizing personnel to do more detailed facility assessments, weather permitting and to begin to safely restore production in the areas not directly affected.

A key factor in getting all Chevron GOM fields back on production is also dependent on the integrity of the oil and gas pipeline systems and onshore terminals and plants.
