Deepwater port

An offshore terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) or energy product loading/unloading, or used to describe a seaport that can accommodate a fully loaded Panamax-class ship. For LNG operations, a deepwater port is a connection to an ocean floor natural gas pipeline using a turret-loading buoy that serves as the LNG tanker’s mooring. Deepwater ports may also be considered as offshore structures used as a port or terminal for loading/unloading other energy products, such as the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP).
