Assessment of post-hurricane damaged and destroyed oil and gas infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico
The purpose of this program is to assess damage to oil and gas production infrastructure, as well as the environmental impacts following the passing of a category three (or greater) hurricane. Assessment is made by satellite radar imagery. This is a cooperative effort with numerous federal agencies including NGA, FEMA, USCG, EPA, USGS and others. Although the program has been in place for several years it is not yet operational.
