Deepwater Riser Services facility in Houma now a Foreign Trade Zone


Deepwater Riser Services, a division of Morrison, an energy service company for the oil, gas and renewables industries, announced last week that its Houma storage facility is now certified as a Foreign Trade Zone.

“Our Houma storage facility will allow our clients to store drilling products without the need to pay customs or duties and property is not subject to ad valorem taxes,” says John DeBlieux, Deepwater vice president.

Additional value is provided to importers who may be able to defer duties or tariffs on products by storing their items within the FTZ.
