Murphy Oil begins evacuating offshore workers, weighs production curbs

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Murphy Oil MUR.N on Saturday began evacuating non-essential workers from its U.S. Gulf of Mexico offshore production facilities ahead of tropical storms Laura and Marco.

The company is monitoring the two storms, which are expected to spin up the Gulf of Mexico, and has begun making plans for possible output curbs, Vice President Kelly Whitley said in a statement.
