HOUSTON (Dow Jones Newswires), Sep. 19, 2011

Chevron said Monday it has begun to repair a pipeline off the Louisiana Coast in the Gulf of Mexico that leaked a small amount of oil a week ago.

The company said it expects to finish repairing the Main Pass pipeline system by mid week. About 8,000 to 9,000 barrels of oil per day from the company's Gulf production remain shut in.
