Petroleum Coke Retaining Wall

BFP develops and supplies treated wood panels for petroleum byproduct storage facility

Southwest Louisiana is home to multiple petrochemical refineries. These refineries process crude oil into multiple products, including petroleum coke. The coke product is stored at the Port of Lake Charles before being shipped to consumers across the world. The Port requested bids for a retaining wall to help store more petroleum coke on-site and Bayou Forest developed the idea of using panels to do the job.


We designed and supplied 10"x 40" panels, constructed from 10"x 10" SYP  timbers selected to meet engineer-approved design values according to strength and durability. These timbers were sized and precision-end-trimmed so that each panel would line up to be placed in the H-Beam columns comprising the wall. In addition, each panel was CCA treated after assembly to protect against decay from moisture. 


Bayou Forest Product's solution ultimately provided the contractor with a cost-effective and efficient means for meeting its customer's needs.
