According to Reuters, operator Anadarko Petroleum Corp. confirmed Friday that production at a key energy hub in the Gulf of Mexico has ramped up to pre-shut in levels following the passing of Tropical Storm Ida earlier this week.

The largest natural gas processing facility in the Gulf and owned by Enterprise Products Partners LP and Helix Energy Solutions, the Independence Hub is currently producing nearly 700 million cubic feet per day of natural gas.

The facility has the capability to process up to one billion cubic feet per day of supply, but due to scheduled routine maintenance during the third quarter of 2009, has been producing at a reduced rate, the report said.
