Production Management Industries, LLC, a Superior Energy Services Company, has opened a Shorebase in Morgan City, LA focused primarily on supporting shelf, coastal, and inland waters production and drilling activities.

“As the demand for resources in Louisiana’s deepwater port has increased with projections for deepwater drilling activities continuing that upward trend, PMI is providing an alternative solution for operators that are experiencing inefficiencies supporting their operations,” states Don Mehrtens PMI Vice President. “The lower demand on resources here will create value to operators in more efficient use of their marine assets and lower equipment & personnel transportation costs into and out of this port.”

PMI’s Shorebase is centrally located on the Louisiana coast and provides better protection from weather events than ports located directly on the Louisiana coastline. It is in close proximity to established fuel docks, mud docks, 29-B waste transfer stations, rental & supply companies, fabrication yards, shipyards, repurpose facilities, and other industry & civil infrastructure to support offshore or inland oil & gas properties.

The 12.5 acre site with 600 foot bulkhead dock can easily accommodate all the necessary services expected of a first class Shorebase facility. It includes ample acreage for material handling & temporary storage, both open and enclosed for dry goods and sensitive equipment; secure short-term and long-term parking; marine & aviation crew changes, meeting rooms; safety training facility; customer office space; and satellite offices for logistics coordinators.

Jamie Holt, General Manager of PMI’s Gulf of Mexico Business Unit stated, “We will focus on safe material handling and minimizing marine vessel port time to lower an operator’s LOE and AFE expenses. We have created a first class facility in the birthplace of the offshore oil & gas industry to provide shorebase support for production facilities, drilling programs & well work, construction projects, and decommissioning activities.”

PMI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Superior Energy Services, Inc. which is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange as SPN. PMI Energy Services –  headquartered in Morgan City, LA with branches in Fourchon, Venice, and Harvey – offers dockside boat & barge tank and portable container cleaning; production & process equipment maintenance cleaning; NORM specific-licensee; and hazardous/non-hazardous waste assessment, sampling, remediation & restoration, and closure of facilities, pits, marsh, and wetlands areas.
