A-Port opened in March 2009 as a full service shorebase facility primarily to support the production, construction and work-over operations of Apache Corporation in its West Delta and Grande Isle operations. This support continues to date. A-port’s initial facility was approximately 2.5 acres with 300’ of waterfront. Through strategic acquisitions, A-Port has now grown to 11 acres and 1155 linear feet of water front.
Shortly after Macondo, A-Port became the Command Center for BP’s Grand Isle operations associated with the spill. After clean-up activities associate with Macondo ceased, A-Port became the single source shorebase facility for the production, construction, drilling and work-over operations of EPL from West Delta to South Timbalier as well as a “go to” shorebase facility to many other operators in the area. At one point, the facility was actively servicing as many as 5 drilling rigs, 3 P & A’s, 2 snubbing jobs, 12 AFE/construction operations and 140 production platform facilities. This facility regularly had as many as 20 to 25 support vessels for various customers serviced by its facility in each 24 hour period.
A-Port’s success results from its reliable team of trained support staff and the strategic planning, dock design and optimal utilization of land area and water frontage of its facility.
