Louisiana Offshore Oil Port Monitoring Program
Entry ID: LA_DWF_LOOP

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP) facility was built 18 miles offshore
from southeast Louisiana to provide port facilities for supertankers to
transfer large amounts of oil from tankers to interim storage facilities; this
in turn provided linkage with other pipelines for distribution of oil to
refineries. Because of the valuable resources located in this area,
monitoring of animal and plant life along with selected parameters was
necessary to evaluate and document impacts in this productive zone. Data from
estuarine and marine samples collected by LDWF are included in this data base.
