About Coastal Separation and Service, LLC

Coastal Separation and Service, LLC.was launched in April, 2012 by Dr. Christopher E. Cenac, Jr. following in his family’s footsteps becoming part of Louisiana’s vibrant maritime industry. Dr. Cenac will focus Costal Separation and Service on bringing cutting edge fuel and water solutions to the maritime industry, specifically in offshore oil and gas and commercial marine. The Cenac family has been involved in the maritime and seafood industry for more than 100 years. Jean Pierre Cenac landed in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1860. He eventually found his way to Terrebonne Parish. This parish’s name means “land of the good earth”. It is known for its fertile estuary system, diverse habitat and bountiful resources. It was here along the banks of Bayou Terrebonne that he established a seafood business, which incorporated the first ships to be used locally for commerce. This developing commerce of seafood required a need for specialized vessels so he established an entrepreneurship in the boating industry, which still remains to this day. He, along with his sons and grandsons, branched out into other industries including maritime transportation, oil field exploration and service, and other maritime needs. Cenac Towing eventually became a leader in the towboat and barge industry in southern Louisiana and the largest privately owned towing company in the United States. They have now acquired the Gulf Coast distributorship for Aqua-Chem providing quality products and services for water purification to the Marine and Oil and Gas Industry within the Gulf Coast.
