ABSTRACT
The article discusses the state of oil and gas production in the U.S. following the Hurricane Katrina disaster in 2005. Before the hurricane, Royal Dutch/Shell's Mars floating platform was pulling 170,000 barrels of oil and 200 million cubic feet of natural gas a day out of the Gulf of Mexico. Katrina's impact will be felt on the U.S. oil patch for many years to come.
