Port Fourchon, a few miles south-west of New Orleans, could be closed for several weeks after taking a direct hit from Hurricane
Ida on 29 August, according to the port’s executive director Chett Chiasson. The port is the main hub of the deepwater US
Gulf of Mexico. Most offshore hardware appeared to have survived unscathed – most output was closed down as a precaution as
the hurricane approached and crew were evacuated from half of all platforms. Aerial surveys of Port Fourchon showed extensive
damage, including missing roofs and flooding. Shipping interests have been told to expect delays.
