Posted April 10, 2018 11:20:58The Cutterhead pipeline is dredging a deep dike in southern Mississippi, and has begun removing a massive chunk of sediment from the waterway.
The pipeline is being dredged in the Marshall Delta, the delta that includes the Mississippi River, the Gulf of Mexico, and parts of Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee.
The cutterhead, which was built in the 1970s, is the largest of two massive pipelines that were built by the company in the early 1980s to carry oil and natural gas from Louisiana to Mississippi.
The two pipelines carry more than 6 billion barrels of oil and more than 300 billion cubic feet of natural gas.
The delta is one of the world’s largest and most valuable oil and gas reserves, and it holds more than $20 trillion in natural gas reserves.
The Marshall Delta is one part of the nation’s largest oil and energy region.
It includes the Gulf Coast and its tributaries, including the Gulf, Gulf of Cartier, Gulf Coast, and Gulf of Texas.
A recent report found that the delta could have a cumulative oil and gasoline production of more than 15 billion barrels by 2050.
The Delta is also home to the world-renowned Mississippi Riverkeeper’s Network, which is dedicated to protecting the delta and its resources.
Last month, a crew from the Marshall Riverkeeper, which has worked for decades to protect the delta’s waters, dredged the Delta dike.
They are removing about 2,000 feet of sediment.
Dredging has become a popular method for removing sediment from rivers, lakes, and streams.
Dreddings have been used in the Gulf for over 100 years, and a dredging program was introduced in 1972.
During the dredging, sediment can be pumped up into the delta, where it can be transported by barges.
In the Marshall, the water quality has deteriorated due to the dredge project.
