The Greater Lafourche Port Commission launched a new logo today.

The port unveiled the sleek new design today, a yellow logo with a flag-like emblem which will now serve as the port's new logo.


The logo was created with assistance from Thibodaux-based consultancy agency White Car.

Together, the GLPC and the firm produced the logo, which focuses on the port's bright future as it continues to act as the central Gulf's perimeter service and supply hub for the offshore oil and gas industry.

“We believe the timing of this logo revamp felt right,” GLPC Executive Director Chett Chiasson said. “As we enter 2021, we are filled with fresh hope and optimism that this year will be a better one for our region, state, and country. This logo reflects that optimism with its bold coloring and design. It also sets the stage for the future to create new opportunities for our port and community through its use.”

The theme of the logo highlights the grid-like development of Fourchon whose bulkheads intermix with the adjacent waterways of Bayou Lafourche and the Gulf.

The blocks depict the solid nature of the Port that has resulted through advanced mitigation techniques, which have helped add substantial land as well as commerce to south Louisiana through the years.

GLPC Board President Chuckie Cheramie said the logo tells the story of the history of the port.

“This logo is something we as a commission are very proud of,” GLPC Board President Chuckie Cheramie said. “It is a logo that stands out just like our tenants and users of the Port. As we move ahead as a Commission and Port, it is important to have a logo that tells the story of how this Port has modernized itself to meet the challenges of the 21st-century through the hard work of many; including those early on that made the Port what it is today, which is the service provider for nearly 100-percent of all Deepwater Offshore Energy Production and Activity in the Gulf of Mexico.”

The main Fourchon logo is only one of several subset logos that showcase all of the port's services: Harbor Police, the South Lafourche Leonard J. Miller Jr. Airport and the Port Fourchon Wetlands Park.

The logo may now be different, but Chiasson said the mission of the port is the same: Ready Today, and Ready for Tomorrow.

The port services the oil and gas industry and continues to be open to expand to other areas dealing with LNG, wind energy, solar power and project cargo, to name a few.

“I would like to thank all our tenants and users for making us who we are. When developing this logo, it was not lost on me that without our service and supply industries that form the backbone of Port Fourchon, exciting moments like this are not possible. Like our tenants and users, we welcome a prosperous future where this logo is what people think of when someone says, ‘Fourchon,’” he said.
