Project Updates

Air Products is committed to open and continuous engagement with residents, local governments, and civic and community organizations. We view it as very important to the community to make ourselves available, and in true Air Products spirit, our efforts go beyond the regulatory requirement for this project.

Air Products is an extremely safety-oriented company when it comes to our people, the surrounding community and its residents, and the environment, and we will continue outreach to talk about the project and its environmental and economic benefits. We also are required to maintain a continuous public awareness program in accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in order to operate. This includes continuous engagement with emergency responders.

In addition to the extensive monitoring required of Air Products during sequestration, the company is required to monitor the area for 50 years after injection of CO₂ has ended.

Project Updates

September 18, 2023

Air Products’ contractors are continuing work on the permitted South test well. Air Products has expanded its capacity for staff at the rig by moving in additional living quarters, to ensure proper staff levels on the rig at all times.

Southeastern Louisiana University has launched a website for its Lake Maurepas Monitoring Project, which includes monitoring reports and updates from its researchers who are monitoring the health of Lake Maurepas. To visit, go to: https://www.southeastern.edu/acad_research/depts/biol/programs/lakemaurepas/index.html

Air Products’ contractors have replaced its boom line with buoys and flashing lights around the perimeter of the rig to provide a more robust visual safe buffer zone. Boaters should stay outside of these buoys and 500 feet from the rig area for their safety and the safety of the workers.

Air Products has launched a boater safety guide online and placed signs with a QR code directing people to this website around Lake Maurepas.
