BP evacuates staff, shuts in production at four U.S. Gulf of Mexico platforms

HOUSTON, July 9 (Reuters) - BP Plc on Tuesday began to evacuate and shut in production at four offshore U.S. Gulf of Mexico production platforms as a developing weather disturbance moves across the Gulf of Mexico, a company spokesman said.

The four platforms - Thunder Horse, Atlantis, Mad Dog and Na Kika - produce more than 300,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, according to the company. (Reporting by Collin Eaton; Editing by Sandra Maler)
