Factbox: U.S. Gulf of Mexico energy facilities down from Hurricane Nate

HOUSTON (Reuters) - U.S. oil and gas producers in the Gulf of Mexico have started assessing offshore facilities to resume operations as storm Nate, which was downgraded on Sunday to a tropical depression, moved inland.

Workers at some of the almost 300 production platforms and rigs shut during the storm were returning on Sunday, according to several oil operators.

But 1.62 million barrels per day (bpd) of oil production and 2.5 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas output remained offline on Sunday, almost unchanged from Saturday, according to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE).

Energy companies that halted some operations and pulled workers ahead of Nate off platforms included BP Plc, Exxon Mobil Corp, Chevron Corp, ConocoPhillips, Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Anadarko Petroleum Corp and BHP Billiton Ltd.

The U.S. Coast Guard on Sunday allowed the Port of New Orleans in Louisiana to resume some vessel traffic, while the Port of Mobile, in Alabama, remained shut to inbound and outbound traffic.

Nate made its initial U.S. landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi river on Saturday and then made a second landfall near Biloxi, Mississippi, early on Sunday.

Below is a list of shut-ins or activities confirmed by companies:
