From: Reuters From correspondents in Mexico

SHELL Oil said it began producing crude oil and natural gas from its Cougar and Enchilada units in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Today we began producing from our Cougar and Enchilada assets in the Gulf of Mexico, and the Yellowhammer Gas Processing Plant, in Mobile Bay, Alabama, is now operating," the company said in a statement. Shell did not elaborate on production levels.

The Enchilada unit, about 300 kilometres southwest of New Orleans, has a peak daily production from its two platforms of 32,800 barrels of crude and 52 million cubic metres of gas, according to the Shell website.

Shell's Cougar platform is part of its Popeye field, about 225 kilometres south of New Orleans in 610 metres of water. Three wells in the Popeye field have had a combined daily production rate as high as 50 million cubic metres and 9,000 barrels of condensate.

The Yellowhammer plant is about 32 kilometres south of Mobile and can process 60 million cubic metres of natural gas each day.

Not sure how much this be, but any steps right now will help imo.

Most of the majors use unique project names to title their big projects. Makes it easier to address them. Shell used to use liquors like Cognac, Bourbon, etc.

So where is the good news? Oil isn't our problem, it's refining it into gasoline. The article says that they are producing natural gas. Doesn't help me, how bout you guys?

Too bad all the oil in the world wont change the fact our processing it to gas has dropped by the 8 plants are closed.

The plants are NOT damaged. There are problems finding staff BUT the profit margins certainly means the plant will be opening even if that means bringing in housing unitf for the staff.

Valero, the nations largest refiner, has all their plants running.
