Gulf of Mexico battening down ahead of Hurricane Delta

‘All preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion,’ the US National Hurricane Centre said late on Tuesday. Almost a third of current gulf crude oil production has been shut in ahead of the storm

Ports along the US Gulf Coast remained open as of Tuesday evening, but the US Coast Guard is scheduled to hold a briefing on Wednesday at Coast Guard Sector New Orleans to discuss preparations for Hurricane Delta. The National Hurricane Centre also warned of the ‘increasing likelihood’ of life-threatening storm surge and dangerous hurricane-force winds as the storm was upgraded from a Category 3 to a Category 4 hurricane, especially along the coasts of Louisiana and Mississippi, where there are several liquefied natural gas export facilities
