NEW YORK, Dec 9 (Reuters) – Shell Oil said it continued to ramp up Gulf of Mexico oil and gas production shut for hurricanes Gustav and Ike this past October.

Shell said production reached over 400,000 barrels per day of oil equivalent — a combination of oil and gas — from properties it operates. This is about 25,000 boepd higher than the previous estimate in November.

Remaining Shell operated production facilities with repairs ongoing are the Salsa, Bullwinkle and South Timbalier 300 assets.

Production resumption dates for remaining facilities will vary, but all repair work should be completed around the end of March 2009, the company said. (Reporting by Janet McGurty)
