  Some Oil, Gas Facilities in Gulf of Mexico Resume Pumping

  Several oil and gas facilities in the Gulf of Mexico have resumed operations following Hurricane Katrina. However, an industry analyst says the full extent of damage to generating facilities is still unknown.

  美国墨西哥湾地区的几个炼油厂在卡特里娜飓风过后,已经恢复生产。不过这个行业的一位分析人士说,炼油设施到底遭到多大破坏目前还不清楚。

  Jim Flanagan of IHS Energy says the story of Hurricane Katrina is still unfolding. He says there's a lack of published reports by energy companies about damage done to their offshore facilities.

  美国IHS能源咨询公司的弗拉纳根说,卡特里娜飓风的破坏还没有结束。他说,能源公司还没有公布近海设施遭受破坏的报告。

  "I think it has a lot to do with, number one, some of the on-shore staging areas have been pretty much devastated," said Mr. Flanagan. "So, it's difficult to get transportation to and from some of these platforms. I think there's 819 manned platforms and 140 or so manned rigs offshore that all need to be checked out. And so there's a big run on transportation equipment and personnel to go out and check on all these facilities. And it's just taking a long time."

  他说:“我想其中有很多原因。首先,一些海岸地区受灾严重,很难前往这些海上钻井平台。我想,那里总共有819座有人操纵的钻台和大约140个有人操纵的机械设备有待检查。到那里去检查所有的设备需要大量的交通设施和人员,这需要很长的时间。”

  He says following previous hurricanes, the energy industry was quick to release reports on the damage their facilities sustained.

  弗拉纳根说,以往在飓风过后,能源行业都能很快地公布损失报告。
