The Operational Center for the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry

Plaquemines Parish is located at the Southeastern-most tip of Louisiana and acts as the operational center for the offshore oil and gas industry. The Parish is also home to the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, the internationally celebrated Louisiana seafood industry (which produces millions of pounds of seafood annually), major petrochemical refineries and coal transfer terminals, and traditional agriculture. Plaquemines Parish represents one of the most promising areas for industrial growth with its low tax base, abundance of natural resources and undeveloped land, miles of deep draft water frontage, and comprehensive transportation networks.
