Sorrento Brine Storage Facility, Brine Well No. 14,
Ascension Parish, Louisiana

Matrix New World Engineering (Matrix) professionals served as environmental project managers for the construction of ExxonMobil Pipeline Company’s (EMPCo) Well No. 14 Brine Well at their existing Sorrento Brine Storage Facility in Ascension Parish, LA. The project involved the construction of the brine well and approximately 3 miles of new pipeline. Given the geographic setting of the Sorrento Storage Facility, it is surrounded by bald-cypress/tupelo swamp, which numerous migratory nesting birds and bald eagles inhabit. Matrix staff were responsible for performing nesting bird surveys and preparing a nesting bird abatement and implementation plan. More >
