Our offshore platform and rig decommissioning facility is located at 499 Powhatten Court, Gibson, LA on Bayou Black about 20 miles from the Eugene Island Sea Buoy near mile marker 85 on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW). The water depth ranges 16 feet to 20 feet in the channel with no height restrictions from the Gulf. The Gibson yard sits on 74 acres and has 1,700 feet of waterfront with 950 feet of bulkhead. An additional 1,800 feet is available for fleeting as needed.
Our barge turnaround averages three to four business days, depending on the size of the material, how it is set up on the barge, and current weather conditions.
After 40 years in the barge and ship demolition business, Mr. Butch Caton expanded his business again to accommodate offshore decommissioning. In Spring 2010 M.A.R.S., Inc. opened the yard in Gibson, LA with the main focus being offshore Platform and Rig scrapping. M.A.R.S., Inc. will also continue to do ship breaking and barge demolition at this facility as well.
On June 26, 2018 M.A.R.S. received ISO 9001:2015 management system certification. Click here for the certificate.
