Due to an increased demand for U.S. coal exports in the late seventies and early eighties, the Plaquemines Parish Coal Transshipment Terminal expanded its capacity from 3.5 million to 15 million short tons per year. The Louisiana coal terminal receives most of its coal from Mississippi River ports and exports the coal to Gulf, European and Far East ports. The terminal remained operational during its expansion, which included expanded dock, storage and handling, blending and sampling facilities.
