As a worker in the oilfield and specifically, at the Port of Iberia, this project would provide untold benefits to the construction capabilities of fabrication companies at the Port. This issue has been discussed for years and the time has come that a decision needs to be made on the future of this project.
The governing commission of the Port of Iberia is reaching out to the people in Iberia Parish for a letter-writing campaign to promote deepening the canal at the port.
“We’ve been working on deepening the port of Iberia for a while,” said Craig Romero, executive director of the Port of Iberia. “We’re trying to put a bigger emphasis on exporting deepwater structures.”
