The Port Tampa Bay Petroleum Docks project was a major facility reconstruction designed to improve the function and efficiency of offloading berth space and infrastructure which supports several major petroleum suppliers for the Tampa Bay region. Planned improvements included modifications to Berth 222 and Berth 223, demolition and disposal of the REK Petroleum Pier and construction of new Berth 227N on the north side of the REK slip. Work also included dredging of the affected berthing areas to accommodate petroleum ship berthing and navigation.
Permitting of this project involved sediment sampling and analysis, a benthic survey, coordination with resource agencies and the preparation of applications to the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Tampa Port Authority.
