MMS Updates Damage Assessment from Hurricane Ivan

Photograph of an offshore crane at work.In the aftermath of Hurricane Ivan, the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Minerals Management Service continues to monitor the progress made by the oil and gas industry in returning to normal levels of operation in the Gulf of Mexico.  About 475,000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and about 1.8 billion cubic feet of gas per day (BCFPD) remain shut-in.  Based on preliminary information supplied by operators, perhaps as much as 150,000 BOPD and 1.0 BCF/D of the shut-in production may be back on line by the end of October.  For the longer term, about 96% of the normal daily GOM production, which is approximately 1.7 million BOPD and approximately 12.3 BCFPD of gas, should be back on line within 6 months.

Using Physical Oceanography: How Water Moves

Underwater photograph of a coral reef.Imagine that you are stranded on a desert island less than 100 miles from shore. You write a message, stuff it into a bottle, and toss it into the ocean. Do you know what the chances are that a floating message in a bottle will be found? They’re not bad -- you actually have about a 50% chance that the bottle will be carried by the ocean to land. The ocean is a constantly moving force that influences our global climate, provides routes for ships, and creates fascinating challenges and movements that we are just beginning to understand.
