New Western Gulf Deepwater Shore Base Open in January

Gulf Access Base, Port Aransas, Texas has the 200-acre McDermott facility on the Corpus Christi Ship Channel under contract with plans to close on the property in December of this year.

"This facility is the only one of its kind on the western Gulf," said Sam Canterbury, Partner in the project. "The facility is highly stabilized with 4,700' of bulkhead with up to 46 ft of water including a 1,650' X 500' slip. We are located only 150 miles from Alaminos Canyon operations which will allow operators to cut transportation costs more than half in many cases."

Plans for the facility include leasing dedicated secure parcels of 1 – 100 Acres as storage, staging, and base operations for deepwater operators in the western Gulf. Load in, load out, fuel, water, and provisions will be available. Port security and controlled parking will be provided. Space for suppliers and service providers is also planned.

"As the deep western gulf is developed by both old and new players, a support center of this type has become necessary," according to Canterbury. "We have the location, improved space, and water depth to meet the needs of the industry now and in the future."
