UPDATE: Majority of Storm-affected Gas Plants Operational
September 24, 2008

Based on information provided by the U.S. Department Energy Tuesday morning, 24 of the 38 natural gas processing plants from Texas to Alabama that were impacted by hurricanes Gustav and Ike were operational. Of these facilities, seven plants were running at a reduced level while 17 were operating normally. In total, these 24 plants offer 9.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of processing capacity.

The remaining 14 plants were not online as of 9:30 a.m. Central time Tuesday. Seven of these facilities -- located primarily in South Louisiana -- were shut down. Seven plants from Matagorda County, Texas, to St. Mary Parish, La., were capable of restarting; they had not yet done so because electricity was still unavailable or upstream gas flow was still shut in.

For a detailed list of the affected gas processing plants, review the list below. This information was current as of 9:30 a.m. Central time on Tuesday.
