Occidental Petroleum shuts in U.S. Gulf of Mexico production, evacuates workers

June 5 (Reuters) - Occidental Petroleum Corp has shut in production at its central and eastern Gulf of Mexico facilities ahead of Tropical Storm Cristobal, the company said on Friday.

Occidental has evacuated all workers from the facilities, it said, as Cristobal begins moving north to pass through the heart of U.S. offshore oil production areas over the weekend.
