PLEASE BE ADVISED:
ALL TOWS, regardless of length, sailing to Enlink Jennings Terminal in Jennings, LA:
- STOP South of the Railroad Bridge on the Mermentau River.
- ALL BARGES must be tripped ONE-AT-A-TIME and STERN FIRST through the Railroad Bridge and all the way to the dock. This will ensure proper positioning of the barge for spotting the header properly on the dock and minimize transit risk through the Railroad Bridge (BRIDGE RESTRICTED TO 50’ WIDTH).
- Upon arrival to the dock:
- Catch a lead mooring line on the West end of the dock from the stern end of the barge.
- ALWAYS MAINTAINING A HEADLINE, break the boat out to the outside of the barge.
- Ease the stern into position, before guiding the bow end towards and alongside the dock.
WHEN PERFORMING THESE CLOSE QUARTER MANUEVERS, USE OF A HEADLINE AND CLEAR, CONSTENT RADIO COMMUNICATION ARE ESSENTIAL.
This dock is inset into a sharp bend on Bayou Nezpique, just off MM 74 Mermentau River. Here is a pic of the dock for reference:
Thank you for your cooperation. Let’s keep it safe out there!
