Shell Offshore Inc.

Shell Offshore Inc. hired Core Fabrication in April 2018 to offload several surface and subsea components for the Stones FPSO project from a customer supplied vessel and place into storage near the dockside and into Core’s indoor storage facilities. Those components included a PD (Pancake Deck) shipped from Louisiana, subsea ALM (Artificial Lift Module), and a surface VFD (Variable Frequency Drive), and a BF-HPU (Barrier Fluid Hydraulic Power Units) shipped from Norway. After the offloading operation was completed, Core then performed assembly, welding, integration, NDE, coating, modifications, and lift testing of the equipment. The components weighed up to 330T.


Hess Corporation- Offloading and Storage of TSBs

In June 2017 Hess Corporation, a leading oil and gas producer, contracted Core Industries, to offload 12 TSBs (Tendon Support Buoys) arriving from the Stampede TLP project at Core’s Theodore, AL deep water port facilities for long term storage, preservation and maintenance. A 660T crane was used to offload the TSBs from the barge. Core then used SPMTs (Self-Propelled Modular Transporters) to transport the TSBs from the dock to long term storage. Each TSB is 53’6” in height, 30’8” in diameter, and 134T in weight. With Core’s experienced operations and project management personnel, heavy lift capabilities and storage facilities, the project was completed successfully.
