LA 1 Port Fourchon Study

A study was conducted to provide an assessment of the national consequences of disruptions to LA-1. The study evaluates the reduced ability of the nation to deliver two critical commodities (crude oil and natural gas) to the American public as a result of the loss of LA-1. The study also addresses local, regional and national economic impacts due to a disruption of LA-1 for an extended period of time.

This study has been prepared, in collaboration, by the National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center (NISAC) and the National Incident Management Systems and Advanced Technology (NIMSAT) Institute located at the University of Louisiana Lafayette. NIMSAT’s effort was funded by the LA-1 Coalition, a group that is a proponent of enhancing LA-1 to make it less likely to be disrupted.
