Offshore and on-shore upstream production operating normally: Exxon

In a post-Harvey update, ExxonMobil (ticker: XOM) reported that its Baytown and Beaumont refineries have begun producing fuels at reduced rates, and that crude oil and refined product pipelines in the Gulf and other regions of Texas have restarted as recovery continues from Hurricane Harvey.

Offshore production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico and onshore facilities have resumed normal operations, the company said.

Jerry Wascom, president of ExxonMobil Refining and Supply Company said the company had brought in gasoline, diesel and jet fuel from other regions to supplement its own production.
