Some of the oil activities that were shut down for Hurricane Harvey are preparing to restart.
Marathon Oil and EOG Resources report that they had restarted operations in the Eagle Ford.
Valero Energy Corp. said efforts to power up the Three Rivers and Corpus Christi plants are underway, but no startup time has been set.
BHP Billiton says it has restarted some oil and gas operations after ceasing drilling and fracking work on Friday.
At least one of the company's Hawkfield wells are back in production, with more to "ramp up production over the next several days."
"We have assessed a majority of our operated wells and midstream facilities and can confirm that we have not received any significant damage," according to a BHP spokesperson.
About two million barrels of production per day is being lost because refineries closed because of the storm, according to federal agencies.
And Enterprise Products Partners L.P. announced that its plants at the Texas Gulf Coast suffered no heavy damage from Harvey and partial operations are continuing. However, among eight natural gas processing units in South Texas, two are functioning, including the biggest plant in Yoakum, Texas, but the other six units have been shut down.
