Louisiana Offshore Oil Port Suspends Tanker Loading Due
The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP) suspended tanker offloading at its offshore marine terminal on Sunday because of Tropical Storm Sally, the company said in a statement posted on-line.
The LOOP is the nation’s only oil port able to receive the largest crude oil tankers.
Its onshore storage facilities continued to operate as Sally, forecast to become a hurricane, threatened the Louisiana coast, the company said.
