FACTBOX-U.S. Gulf of Mexico energy facilities down from Hurricane Nate

 (Adds facilities shutting and restarting)
    HOUSTON, Oct 8 (Reuters) - U.S. oil and gas producers in the
Gulf of Mexico have started assessing offshore facilities to
resume operations as storm Nate, which was downgraded on Sunday
to a tropical depression, moved inland.
    Workers at some of the almost 300 production platforms and
rigs shut during the storm were returning on Sunday, according
to several oil operators.
    But 1.62 million barrels per day (bpd) of oil production and
2.5 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas output remained
offline on Sunday, almost unchanged from Saturday, according to
the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE).
    Energy companies that halted some operations and pulled
workers ahead of Nate off platforms included BP Plc,
Exxon Mobil Corp, Chevron Corp, ConocoPhillips
, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Anadarko Petroleum Corp
 and BHP Billiton Ltd.
    The U.S. Coast Guard on Sunday allowed the Port of New
Orleans in Louisiana to resume some vessel traffic, while the
Port of Mobile, in Alabama, remained shut to inbound and
outbound traffic. 
    Nate made its initial U.S. landfall near the mouth of the
Mississippi river on Saturday and then made a second landfall
near Biloxi, Mississippi, early on Sunday.
