Fuel Trucks Pick Up Last Loads

Susan Daker reports from Houston.

Fuel tank drivers picked up their last loads Friday afternoon and made their way to Shell-branded gasoline stations in the Houston area as Hurricane Ike neared the Texas coast.

Many service stations around the city already have plastic covering their pumps. In the past 36 hours, more than six million gallons of gasoline has been delivered to Shell stations, Royal Dutch Shell said in a statement. Gasoline terminals in Beaumont, Pasadena and north Houston have been shut-in but have enough gasoline to supply stations once the weather clears, Shell said. Some wholesalers have preloaded tankers with fuel so they are ready to make deliveries as soon as possible, Shell said. In addition, Shell said generators are on hand to be sent to strategic stations so gasoline can still be sold even if the power is out. read more

Emergency alert for Texas as Hurricane Ike heads for state

Miami President Bush declared an emergency in Texas as Hurricane Ike headed towards the state.

It is expected to reach Texas on Saturday.

Shell, the Anglo-Dutch oil giant, evacuated employees from its offshore installations yesterday when the hurricane hit the Gulf of Mexico, where many oil refineries are based.

The US will provide $10 million (£5.7 million) in aid to help Haiti to recover from the recent storms, a spokesman for the White House said. (AFP) read more

Crude-oil and natural-gas producers were in the middle of restoring operations after Gustav, which forced the shut-in of virtually all output before the hurricane made landfall Sept. 1 just southwest of New Orleans.

Oil-output volumes stayed flat on Monday compared with the previous day, with about 20% of U.S. Gulf output restored, according to the U.S. Minerals Management Service. Gas output continued growing, though, with 36% of capacity back on line. read more
