Full Public Notice          Proposed Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to construct a new marine terminal (Berth 1) at the Motiva Port Arthur Terminal on Texaco Island.  The proposed construction includes the removal of existing pier structures, placement of a steel sheet-pile bulkhead onshore for bank stabilization, dredging/excavating into the bank of Texaco Island in front of the sheet-pile bulkhead to allow for construction of the new berth to be approximately 250 feet from the navigation channel, and the vertical dredging of sediment within the berthing area to allow for shipping access.  Approximately 622,650 cubic yards of material will be hydraulically and/or mechanically excavated to 44 feet below mean lower low water (MLLW).  Once dredging operations are completed, the sheet-pile bulkhead will reach a depth of 18 feet below MLLW to retain the onshore area and accommodate transfer from the shore to the platform.  The distance from the bulkhead to the dredge toe of slope will be approximately 90 feet.  Dredge material will be placed in Placement Area 9, which is operated by the Sabine Neches Navigation District.  Return effluent from Placement Area 9 will be evaluated under a separate permitting process.
