Petroleum Development in Louisiana's Coastal Zoneby Dianne Lindstedt, Louisiana Geological Survey, Baton, Rouge, LA, USA,
Lori Nunn, Louisiana Geological Survey, Baton, Rouge, LA, USA,
Abstract: The most intense petroleum development activity in the nation's coastal area has been concentrated in Louisiana. Most of Louisiana's production has occurred in the coastal zone. The development of petroleum resources in the OCS and the coastal zone has resulted in long-term environmental impacts which have affected wetlands, accelerated land loss, and altered the socioeconomic structure of Louisiana's coastal parishes.
