Item Identification

Title: Deepwater Ports
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2018-10-31
Abstract:

The Deepwater Port Licensing Program is the application process designed to promote the construction of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and oil deepwater ports. This license system was established by the Deepwater Port Act of 1974, as amended by the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002. MARAD DOT assesses the financial capability of potential licenses, prepares the project Record of Decision, and issues or denies the deepwater port license. If the license was denied, surrendered, or withdrawn they are not displayed in this layer. The licensed deepwater ports are: Delfin LNG (Louisiana), Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (Louisiana), Neptune LNG (Massachusetts), and Northeast Gateway (Massachusetts).

Purpose:

To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Supplemental Information:

The native coordinate system for this layer is NAD 1983 (ESPG: 4269). Please note: all MarineCadastre.gov data served by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management and hosted through Esri REST services are in the WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere (EPSG: 3857) projection.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 787699
Description:

Project final features into World Mercator.

Process Date/Time: 2018-08-31 00:00:00

Process Step 2

CC ID: 787700
Description:

Download DeepwaterPortPoints feature class. Search DeepwaterPortStatus to validate statuses of existing ports and to add new points, where appropriate, for approved Deepwater Port applicants or those with operational status. Remove any surrendered, withdrawn, non-operational ports from the feature class.

Process Date/Time: 2018-08-28 00:00:00

Process Step 3

CC ID: 787701
Description:

Populate attributes appropriately, ensuring schema is enforced. TradeType value is obtained from DeepwaterPortStatusMap. Throughput/Peak Capacity is obtained from DeepwaterPortStatus, converting LNG to units of billion cubic feet per day and converting Oil to units of billion barrels per day, where necessary.
