The $1.2 million project will create three separate reefs arrayed in a manner to protect depressions in the seafloor that were created by the prevailing current flowing around and through the Pickets. It is hoped that the reefs will protect and enhance these scour holes, while providing additional habitat for marine life. The reefing project will begin immediately after the existing structures are removed to preserve the scour holes as much as possible. To cover the cost, Apache, Fieldwood, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Reef Trust Fund, and CCA’s national habitat program collectively will contribute $1.05 million to fund the project. The contractor for construction of the reefs, DLS Energy, and the company providing the materials for the reefs, Matt Durand Contractors, are both giving significant discounts on their services as in-kind donations to the project.
