After powerful hurricane Ida swept into the Gulf of Mexico, oil prices rose about one percent, forcing authorities to close and evacuate hundreds of offshore oil platforms.

Brent crude futures climbed 84 cents or 1.2 percent to $73.54 per barrel by 001 GMT, having climbed more than 11 percent last week in anticipation of a disruption in oil production.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude futures rose 53 cents, or 0.8 percent, to $69.27 per barrel, after jumping just over ten percent last week.

By Saturday, energy companies had stopped 91 percent of oil production, or 1.65 million barrels per day, in the Gulf of Mexico, United States, according to the Bureau of Environmental Safety and Enforcement, as Ida moved towards drilling platforms and other infrastructure.

According to a regulator, the oil and gas companies had evacuated 290 offshore installations and transported 11 drilling vessels away by midday Saturday.

The National Hurricane Center reported that Ida struck the coast near Port Forchon, Louisiana, the Gulf Marine Energy Industry Center, at 11:55 a.m. Central United States time (16:55 GMT) Sunday after becoming a high-risk Category 4 hurricane.
