Conoco, Exxon Evacuating Nonessential Staff From Some US Gulf Facilities
HOUSTON (Dow Jones Newswires), July 23, 2010
ConocoPhillips and Exxon Mobil said Friday that they were evacuating nonessential staff from some U.S. Gulf of Mexico facilities ahead of the arrival of Tropical Storm Bonnie.
ConocoPhillips said it is evacuating nonessential personnel from the Magnolia oil and gas production platform that it operates in the Gulf.
Exxon said it is moving nonessential staff from those offshore facilities that are in the storm's projected path, which extends from south Florida and heads toward south Louisiana through the eastern and central Gulf. Exxon said it is ready to evacuate the rest of its staff from these facilities before the storm arrives.
Both companies said that no oil and gas production has been affected by these evacuations.
