Plaquemines Parish: An Ideal Location
Centrally located where the Mississippi River meets the Gulf of Mexico, Plaquemines Parish is the epicenter for the offshore oil and natural gas industry, petrochemical refineries, and coal transfer terminals.
An abundance of natural resources, undeveloped land, miles of deep draft water frontage, comprehensive transportation networks, and a capable workforce makes Plaquemines the ideal location for The Gulf Gateway Terminal.
The port provides water access to 33 states – allowing businesses to benefit from barge, rail and interstate highway access across much of the United States. Plaquemines Port is perfectly positioned to serve the expanding global markets for oil & gas, grain, coal, chemicals and more. In addition, the port offers 14 major anchorages and thousands of acres of properties available for development of container ports, bulk & break bulk operations, docks and much more. The port is also located within close proximity of Latin American ports and the Panama Canal to help facilitate waterborne commerce.
