LOOP: Offshore Marine Terminal restart imminent

LOOP’s Offshore Marine Terminal in Louisiana that suspended its crude oil offloading operations on August 13 is expected to get back online soon.

In its update issued last night The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port said that field crews had completed the repair plan on the pipeline and that system checks required prior to restarting had begun.

“LOOP is working with shippers to safely resume normal marine offloading operations immediately following a successful check out. LOOP estimates offloading could commence as early as tonight,” LOOP’s statement dated August 21, reads.

Tankers have been unable to offload their crude oil cargo since August 13, when LOOP suspended offloading activities at its Offshore Marine Terminal to look into an oil sheen discovered along the LOOP pipeline right-of-way. All other pipelines into and out of the Clovelly Hub have remained operational.

LOOP, Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, is the largest point of entry for crude oil coming into the U.S.„ The deepwater port is located 18 miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico in 110 ft. of water.„ LOOP receives crude oil from two sources: Large ships carrying crude oil to the US from foreign countries and domestic deepwater oil production wells operating in the Gulf of Mexico
