Update on Galveston area conditions

Sat Sep 02 13:32:22 CEST 2017 arnekiel

HOUSTON / GALVESTON / FREEPORT While there are five ships set to sail, they are not in or above the restricted area beyond Morgan’s Point. Other reasons for ships not moving are that they are over the present draft restrictions or the required facility inspections need to take place. Movements will start shortly for any vessels that are not restricted by draft limits or that do not have to transit through a restricted area. Baytown is one of the places above the restricted areas and therefore ships cannot transit from or to facilities there. According to the pilots, the current is running at ten knots in the channel due to floodwaters moving to the sea. A total of 14 ships are in port and 24 are at anchorage awaiting inbound transit. Currents in the channel are of concern to pilots. They are watching conditions closely. Additionally, all terminals must have completed this post-storm assessment and must be inspected by USCG prior to receiving traffic. Source: Inchcape Shipping Services

Hurricane Harvey: Port Condition Recovery set

Fri Sep 01 09:47:24 CEST 2017 arnekiel

Thursday, August 31, 2017, Houston/Texas City/Galveston/Freeport, United States - The Captain of the Port (COTP) has set Port Condition Recovery for the Port of Houston, Port of Texas City, Port of Galveston and Port of Freeport and connection waters effective at 1400 on Wednesday August 30, 2017. Restrictions on all vessel movement within the Houston/Galveston AOR will be managed by the Captain of the Port and promulgated by the Port Condition Team (PCT). Initial restrictions are based upon channel and Aid to Navigation surveys conducted by USCG, other Federal agencies and local public and private assets. Restrictions will be updated as further surveys are conducted and further information comes to hand. Full opening of the ports will be reliant on hydrographical surveys and removal of any potential hazards to navigation. For the Port of Texas City, Port of Galveston and the Port of Freeport, the draft is restricted to 33 feet or less. For the Port of Houston, the draft is restricted to 37 feet or less. Post storm assessments indicate severe currents and hazards on the Upper Houston Ship Channel from Morgan’s Point inbound to the turning basin. That portion of the channel remains closed for vessel movements until conditions improve and more information is obtained. All mariners are reminded to proceed with extreme caution due to strong current, debris runoff, and other unmarked hazards and missing or off-station navigation aids. Please report any hazardous conditions to the Sector Command Center at (281) 464-4851.
