Marathon shuts US Gulf production on storm threat

HOUSTON, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Marathon Oil Corp (MRO.N) said on Thursday it had shut in production and was evacuating all workers from its Ewing Bank oil and gas platform in the Gulf of Mexico as a tropical disturbance loomed over the east-central part of the basin.

The company also shut in production at its Droskhy subsea development, a spokesman said. (Reporting by Kristen Hays; Editing by Marguerita Choy)
