U.S. oil major Chevron Corp said on Wednesday it was resuming production at its oil fields off northwest Australia after a cyclone threat passed.
Combined production from the fields is 9,000 barrels a day, Chevron said.
However, over 220,000 barrels per day of oil production was shut in over the weekend after operators, including Woodside Petroleum Ltd, Apache Corp, BHP Billiton and AED Oil Ltd.
BHP said on Wednesday its 80,000 barrel per day Stybarrow and approximate 8,000 bpd Griffin oil fields were still shut, though its iron ore operations in the Port Hedland area were continuing for now. Woodside has a 50 percent stake in the Stybarrow field.
Woodside, which halted production to the 74,000 bpd Cossack Pioneer and the 30,000 bpd Enfield oil fields, said production vessels for the two fields were still disconnected.
