The name of this production platform is High Island 389A (HI389A) - meaning that it is located in the High Island lease block. At present the lease is owned by Vastar. The primary product from this platform is natural gas. The platform provides substrate for a rich biological community living on and around its support structure. HI389A is located just 1 mile east of the East Flower Garden Bank, and is actually within the Sanctuary boundaries. The Flower Garden Banks NMS is proud of their very close and productive relationship with the oil and gas industry. (photo: Frank and Joyce Burek)
