Public Notice         Project Plans

The applicant proposes to mechanically dredge an access route and a slip approximately 241 feet north of the Houston Ship Channel within Scott Bay.  The access route dredge footprint will be 2,069-foot in length by 70-foot in width.  The proposed slip to be dredged is approximately 345-foot in length by 160-foot in width.  Dredging will be conducted to -8-foot mean lower low water (MLLW).  Approximately 15,364 cubic yards of dredge material will be excavated and hauled offsite.  All dredge material will be hauled off via barge and placed within Adloy dredge material placement area (DMPA).

An 80-foot by 230-foot by 3-foot rock pad (2,045 cubic yards) will be required under the proposed drilling barge for support due to deep sediment penetrations adjacent to and at the proposed surface hole location.  Additionally, ten 5-pile clusters will be needed for drilling barge stabilization.  A typical 10-foot by 20-foot well protector platform will be constructed upon successful completion of the well.  All operations will take place in open water.
