Activities under way in Louisiana toward construction of an offshore superport oil terminal by LOOP Inc. (Louisiana Offshore Oil Port Inc.), formed by thirteen participating oil companies, involve a comprehensive ecology study of the onshore area of the proposed superport by Louisiana State University and of the offshore area by Nicholls State University. A tentative outline of the facilities includes a complex of mooring platforms around a pumping platform 21 miles at sea off the Louisiana coast in 110 ft of water. Oil will be pumped ashore through 48 in. buried pipelines to a tank farm on a 1600 acre tract near the mouth of Bayou Lafourche. The scope of problems to be overcome is discussed.
