HOUSTON, July 29 (Reuters) - BHP Billiton (BLT.L) expects to fully re-man its two Gulf of Mexico oil and gas platforms over the weekend as the threat of Tropical Storm Don dissipates, a spokesman said.

The company evacuated support workers from its Neptune and Shenzi platforms earlier this week, but never shut in production as Don tracked far west of the facilities, spokesman Kris Sava said. (Reporting by Kristen Hays)
