BP's Gulf oil production falls as key pipeline goes offline

HOUSTON (Reuters) - BP Plc (BP.L) said on Friday its U.S. Gulf of Mexico oil production has slipped due to the shutdown of a pipeline system amid Hurricane Harvey, though it declined to say by how much.

The Cameron Highway Oil Pipeline System, controlled by Genesis Energy LP (GEL.N), is offline due to the storm, limiting BP’s ability to pipe crude out of the Gulf from its Atlantis and Mad Dog platforms. BP’s Thunder Horse and Na Kika platforms continue to operate normally, the company said.
