Workers of energy companies in the US started to return to their work and restart their operations in the storm-swept facilities along the US Gulf Coast. This happened just two days after that mess created by Hurricane Delta. BHP Group, Chevron Corp, and Royal Dutch Shell Plc were bringing back workers to the production platforms, and the resuming flow is expected to be in full service quickly, depending on the pipelines. Several days are needed for the companies to evaluate the facilities for damage, restoring production, and bringing back the workers. The companies that are involved in operating the oil and gas pipelines were also shut down due to the storm.

The area is responsible for producing almost 1.8 million barrels of oil per day, and it accounts for almost 17 percent of the total output in the US. Some facilities like Cameron Parishes and Calcasieu Waterway are still shut down due to Delta's landfall. The US coast guard has stated that some major facilities reopened their processing plants by adhering to the restrictions. Total SA has continued to generate and restart its usual 225,500 barrel-per-day production by Sunday. Workers are required to maintain the code of conduct strictly, and everything is expected to return to normal soon.
