HOUSTON (Reuters) - Shares of companies like BP Plc involved in the well-blowout in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico have taken a big hit in recent days, but now other firms that make a living in those waters are starting to feel financial pain from the massive oil spill.

The U.S. Department of the Interior issued a moratorium on new drilling permits at least until May 28 when a safety review is due to be completed and now analysts and investors are beginning to fret about future implications of the ban.
