(Reuters) - Chevron has begun evacuating all personnel from its platforms in the Gulf of Mexico and is shutting-in the facilities in preparation for Hurricane Delta, the company said on its website on Monday.

Delta, forecast to strengthen into a major hurricane before entering the Gulf of Mexico, has prompted energy companies to evacuate their offshore oil platforms.
