About 5.5 pct U.S. Gulf oil output still shut after Harvey -govt agency

HOUSTON, Sept 3 (Reuters) - About 5.5 percent of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico’s oil production, or 96,000 barrels of daily output, remained shut on Sunday after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas more than a week ago, the federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said.

The total lost oil production is about 2.97 million barrels since Aug. 23. Affected production is down significantly from the peak of 24.5 percent, or 428,568 bpd, on Aug. 26 as evacuated workers returned and activity resumed.
