HOUSTON (Reuters) – Chevron Corp. CVX.N on Saturday said it had started evacuating two offshore oil platforms and was preparing to halt output as a potential hurricane began to march up the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

The company has begun evacuating all staff from its Blind Faith and Petronius platforms and initiated shut-in procedures, a spokeswoman said in a statement. Production at its other offshore platforms was unaffected, she said.
