Chevron joins producers' rush to evacuate Gulf of Mexico oil platforms

HOUSTON, July 9 (Reuters) - U.S. oil producer Chevron Corp on Tuesday began shutting in and evacuating five production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, joining a move by major oil companies to prepare for a tropical storm.

Chevron is also removing some non-essential workers at a sixth platform, Jack/St. Malo, as a precaution, said spokeswoman Veronica Flores-Paniagua. The company did not disclose the amount of production affected. (Reporting by Gary McWilliams, editing by G Crosse)
