FACTBOX-U.S. Gulf of Mexico energy facilities down from Hurricane Nate

HOUSTON, Oct 8 (Reuters) - U.S. oil and gas producers in the Gulf of Mexico have shut production, moved drilling rigs and evacuated offshore workers as Hurricane Nate sped through the area. Workers had left from more than 300 production platforms and 13 rigs in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico by Saturday, according to the U.S. government. Operators there had shut output equal to 1.61 million barrels per day of oil and 2.48 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas due to the storm, it said. Energy companies that have halted some operations and pulled workers off platforms included BP Plc, Exxon Mobil Corp , Chevron Corp, ConocoPhillips, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Anadarko Petroleum Corp and BHP Billiton Ltd. The U.S. Coast Guard shut ports from New Orleans to Mobile, Alabama, to inbound and outbound traffic. Nate made its initial U.S. landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi river on Saturday evening and then made a second landfall near Biloxi, Mississippi, early on Sunday.
