Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

The Shaw Group has been awarded a contract by the state of Louisiana's Office of Coastal Protection and Restoration for overall project management and construction of barrier island temporary berms in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Shaw will conduct environmental permitting and assist the state in providing personnel, materials and equipment to build these temporary sand berms. Construction of the berms in accordance with the emergency permit will require mobilization, front-end planning, material testing and analysis, dredging and alignment surveys, as well as coordination with state and federal agencies.

"In this time of crisis, we are mobilizing available resources both locally and internationally to help protect our coastline," said J.M. Bernhard Jr., Shaw's chairman, president and chief executive officer. "With our corporate headquarters in Baton Rouge and more than 5,000 Louisiana-based employees, our roots are firmly planted in this state. As with our Hurricane Katrina recovery work, Shaw has a deep personal interest in our state's protection and recovery."
