  • Port Fourchon: A high priority energy corridor

    As anyone even remotely involved in the offshore oil and gas industry can certainly attest, it has been a challenging couple of years, to say the least. Like most of these businesses, Port Fourchon made the adjustments necessary to deal with a climate filled with uncertainties. Today, however, all the signposts suggest that we have turned the corner, and that the Gulf of Mexico is returning to the business of exploring for, producing, and servicing oil and gas. I’m proud to say that throughout this trying period, Port Fourchon has remained on schedule with our long-planned Northern Expansion program, dredging channels, building bulkhead, and creating waterfront property. This forward-thinking expansion is a testament to the commitment of the Greater Lafourche Port Commission’s leadership. We were even fortunate enough to welcome two new tenants during the past year. Although much of our attention is focused on completing the expansion and major improvements at the South Lafourche Leonard Miller Jr. Airport, we also are looking at how we can provide infrastructure and support for the industry of tomorrow.
