Hurricane Dorian intensifies as it heads for US

Chevron is evacuating nonessential personnel from oil production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, according to a statement from the company:

“Nonessential personnel are being evacuated from our Petronius and Blind Faith facilities, but production from all Chevron-operated Gulf of Mexico assets remains at normal levels. 

As part of our hurricane preparedness procedures, we have a fuel supply strategy team monitoring inventory availability by location, scheduling and staging resupply. Chevron and Texaco stations are independently owned and operated in the US Southeast region. We have been supplying as much fuel as possible in advance of the storm. 

We also proactively communicated that Chevron has a zero-tolerance policy for unlawful price gouging, which goes directly against our values as a company. While we are not able to control the pricing of individually owned and operated facilities, our branded fuel supply agreements do require that station owners and/or operators comply with all laws during a State of Emergency. 

The Chevron Pascagoula refinery in Mississippi is currently following hurricane procedures and paying close attention to the track and forecast of the storm.”
