The production of crude oil in the Gulf of Mexico due to Hurricane Nate on Sunday fell by more than 92%. This is evidenced by the data published by the Bureau of Security and Environmental Control of the United States.
In addition, production of natural gas decreased by 78%. The drop in production was due to the halt in production and the evacuation of employees of many companies due to Hurricane Nate.
Hurricane claimed the lives of more than 20 people in Central America, and last Saturday hit the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. In the states of Alabama and Mississippi, without electricity, because of the weather, about 100 thousand people remained. “Nate” soon weakened to a tropical storm, and then to a tropical depression.
