The forecast path has Maria passing west of or over Bermuda early on Sept. 15, then east of Nova Scotia before possibly hitting Newfoundland on Sept. 16. Energy assets in the storm’s potential path include the Sable Offshore Energy Project, a natural gas field off Canada operated by Exxon Mobil Corp. and Royal Dutch Shell Plc.Hibernia Management & Development Co. also has two rigs under the storm’s potential path over the company’s oilfield on the Grand Banks off Newfoundland. Maria once was pegged to become a hurricane, but it is no longer believed the storm will reach that intensity.
