A STUDY OF THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF TWO PLANNED OFFSHORE OIL PORTS IN THE GULF OF MEXICO, VOLUME 2, ON THE ECONOMY OF SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA. CATEGORICAL IMPACT OF ENERGY PRODUCTION ON SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA
This report complements research on the economic impact of a superport in southwest Louisiana. While area citizens have enjoyed the benefits of the oil and gas resources and the associated economic stimulus provided, this same progress has resulted in a variety of problems. Among these are the increased demand for public services as well as environmental degradation. The study inventories the obvious economic impacts in relation to offshore activity and presents the acquired data as a resource tool for planners.
