If you are in the oil and gas and deep sea exploration industries in the Gulf of Mexico, then you have probably visited the core of all activity at Port Fourchon. Port Fourchon, the southernmost port in Louisiana on the Gulf of Mexico, was originally developed for the importation of bananas in the 1960s. While that service was quickly diverted to Mississippi, Port Fourchon quickly evolved to be the hub for vessels in offshore oil and gas and deep sea exploration. Today, there are more than 600 oil platforms within a short distance to Port Fourchon making it the ideal location to provide service to over 90% of the Gulf’s deepwater oil production.
