In the aftermath of the storm, Devon has shut production at some of its wells in the Cana play until the company can find some alternate processing capacity.

The damaged plant was capable of processing up to 200 million cubic feet of gas a day, Minty said. Devon has been producing about 160 million cubic feet of gas a day in western Oklahoma.

He said Devon can move about 50 million cubic feet of dry gas a day to a large compressor station in the area, but the company is working with some third-party processors to take up the slack from its damaged plant.

Chesapeake Energy Corp. and Continental Resources Inc. reported some minor damage to their facilities in the area as well, but nothing that impeded operations.
