EcoServ Opens $12M Offshore Waste-Handling Facility

PORT FOURCHON, LA (AP) — Lafayette-based EcoServ, a specialty cleaner for offshore energy companies, has invested about $12 million in a new multipurpose facility at Port Fourchon.

         The Advocate’s Ted Griggs reports the new site features 1,600 feet of dockside space and employs close to 100 of the company's 300 workers.

         David Lacoste, vice president of waste collection facilities at EcoServ, said the company began construction a year ago, designing the project in two phases. After the first phase, EcoServ decided to complete the project, anticipating that oil prices would recover, a process that should begin over the next six to nine months.

         As the prices recover, Lacoste said the offshore industry will see more activity.

         He says the company has added the space needed to handle multiple offshore service vessels, which typically run from 250 to 350 feet.
