Hurricane Ida deals a strong blow to the American oil sector, and 95% of production capacity in the Gulf of Mexico has stopped

Weather of Arabia - Sinan Khalaf - The devastating Hurricane Ida dealt a direct blow to the oil sector in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Protection announced that 95% of the oil production capacity in the Gulf of Mexico had stopped.

 

As for the US side of the Gulf of Mexico, it was announced a decline in oil production to 1.272 million barrels and 2087 cubic feet of oil per day.

 

The reasons for the decline in oil production in the Gulf of Mexico in this way are due to the evacuation of 288 oil and gas platforms from their workers prior to the arrival of Hurricane Ida in the region.

 

Earlier on Monday, US President Joe Biden approved a decision to declare Louisiana a disaster area after Hurricane Ida hit, and ordered federal aid to support efforts to respond to the hurricane.

 

"Aid can include grants for temporary housing and home repair, low-interest loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster," a statement issued by the White House said on Monday.
