(Reuters) - Chevron on Friday said it was evacuating offshore personnel and initiating shut-in procedures at four offshore platforms and removing non-essential workers from two additional facilities as a pair of tropical cyclones took aim at the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Chevron said it had begun evacuating all personnel from its Big Foot, Genesis, Jack/St. Malo and Tahiti platforms and starting shut-in procedures. It also began evacuating non-essential workers from its Blind Faith and Petronius platforms but said production at those facilities remains normal.
