BHP to evacuate non-essential staff from Gulf of Mexico platforms on Saturday

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Oil producer BHP Group (BHP.AX) said it plans to evacuate non-essential staff from two U.S. Gulf of Mexico offshore platforms ahead of Hurricane Dorian on Saturday.

The company does not expect the storm, now in the Atlantic Ocean, to affect its production but took the step as a safety measure, said spokeswoman Judy Dane. Earlier, Chevron Corp (CVX.N) said it was evacuating some workers from two of its oil facilities.
