Chevron To Relocate Gulf Airbase To Galliano

GALLIANO, La. (AP) — Chevron says it will relocate its Gulf of Mexico airbase facility in Leesville to the South Lafourche Leonard Miller Jr. Airport in Galliano.

The new $29 million facility will replace the company’s offshore facility in Leesville which has been in use since the 1960s.

The company’s new Greater Gulf of Mexico Airbase is scheduled to open in 2014. Officials say it will provide capacity to transport up to 6,000 workers monthly to and from offshore oil platforms and drilling rigs. It also will be adaptable and expandable.

Parish and state leaders were on hand to take part in a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday.
