LOOP LLC Confirms Advancement of its Vessel Loading Service Development

By Public Information Officer

On July 24, 2017 LOOP LLC announced its intentions to seek shipper interest in vessel loading services to complement its long standing offloading services.  The new service provides connecting logistics from LOOP’s Clovelly Hub in Galliano, La., to its Deepwater Port, 18 miles offshore of Port Fourchon, La. The company made only minor modifications to its existing facilities to operate the port complex bi-directionally.  The configuration safely enables both loading and offloading of Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs) without multiple shuttle tanker movements.

The company has moored a VLCC and initiated its detailed test and checkout procedure.

Clovelly Hub 6 Month Capacity Outlook

By Public Information Officer

February 1, 2018

LOOP tracks the amount of capacity in service at the Clovelly Hub monthly.  A six month capacity forecast follows in the table below.
 
LOOP performs rigorous maintenance, inspection and testing of its facilities, including its above ground tankage and underground caverns.  At specified intervals, these activities require LOOP to remove assets from active service, thus reducing capacity. Those maintenance and construction activities are just a fraction of the work performed, within the LOOP Safety Management System framework, to continually improve the operation.          
 

LOOP Clovelly Hub 6 Month Capacity Outlook
2018 Total Above Ground Capacity Underground Capacity
February 88% 95% 87%
March 87% 90% 87%
April 98% 90% 100%
May 98% 90% 100%
June 98% 90% 100%
July 87% 90% 87%

LOOP will be issuing similar reports on a weekly basis. Please check loopllc.com for updates.
 
Density is determined by continuous density measurement utilizing online densitometers and the weighted-average reading obtained during the batch delivery for the gross standard volume calculation. Density results are then verified using API Manual of Petroleum Measurement Publications (MPMS), Chapter 9 Section 3 “Standard Test Method for Density, Relative Density, and API Gravity of Crude Petroleum and Liquid Petroleum Products by Thermohydrometer Method” for the net standard volume calculation.   
 
Sulfur is determined by the use of a Horiba Sulfur-in-Oil Analyzer. This instrument uses Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence to determine total Sulfur in Petroleum products. ASTM method D4294 “Standard Test Method for Sulfur in Petroleum and Petroleum Products by Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry” is used. Note, this field lab test is conducted on an observed composite sample without water distillation.
