Post Hurricane Assessment of OCS-Related Infrastructure and Communities in the Gulf of Mexico Region
David Dismukes, Allan Pulsipher, and Michelle Barnett. Funded by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Minerals Management Service and the LSU Coastal Marine Institute. Project Funding: $224,837.
An earlier study sponsored by MMS surveyed a wide range of existing onshore infrastructure supporting offshore activities. This investigation resulted in several products including: (1) a GOM "Infrastructure Factbook;" (2) a database of locational and facility attributes of this supporting onshore infrastructure; and (3) a GIS product that maps onshore infrastructure locations across the Gulf.
This project will update the information from the earlier study, so that the most current, up-to-date information about OCS-related infrastructure in the region will be available for Federal and State decision-makers.
