Technip- Barracuda: Unloading/loading 4 reels

Early October 2020 four Barracuda reels arrived on a heavy lift vessel a few weeks before Technip’s Deep Star was scheduled to receive them on their deck for deployment in Trinidad. We offloaded the four reels (345mt, 345 mt, 336 mt, 290mt weights) loaded with flexibles and another 100 project packages and crates from the SAIMAAGRACHT and put them in temporary storage. The reels were loaded onto the Deep Star mid-October. The project was completed successfully using Core’s heavy lift and dock storage capacity.

MWCC- Replacing Dunnage

Core manufactured new concrete mats to be placed under four reels in the MWCC dock storage area. When the matts were prepared, Core used the H/L crane to walk the four 200 ton reels with flexibles to temporary storage. We removed the old dunnage and replaced it with new concrete ones. Core then lifted and walked the four reels back into the long term storage area and placed them on the new concrete mats.

MWCC: Receiving two subsea cooling modules

Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) is responsible for the maintenance, deployment and operation of the Containment System during a response to a deepwater well control incident in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. MWCC utilizes the facilities and services of Technip USA and Core Industries to store, maintain and test the equipment in Mobile, Alabama.

In September 2020 MWCC expanded their well containment system with the addition of two subsea cooling modules that will rest on the seabed in the petroleum flow line. This will provide cooling for some of the extremely high temperatures that some of the newest wells are seeing in the production lines. This equipment was manufactured in Texas and brought to their Surf location at Core for storage and maintenance. It was Cores responsibility to safely offload the two cooling modules (170,000 lbs. each) and their Mud matts (110,000 lbs. each), then integrate these pairs into storage positions in the MWCC Dock Area at Core Industries.

Mad Dog 2: Loading out 12 Suction Piles

In August 2020 Core loaded out 12 of the Holdback and Mooring Suction Piles that were brought to Core in July 2020. Core first installed the vertical and horizontal lift rigging. Then made preparations to the piles such as, opening valves and installing deployment tools onto them. Our 660-ton crane lifted the piles, adjusted the cradles, walked them to the vessel from storage, and loaded them into their sea fastening hardware. The suction piles would travel to the installation vessel at the Mad Dog 2 Platform in the Gulf of Mexico. This project was made successful from a global participation and Core Industries is grateful to play a part in it.

Receipt and Storage of Holdback and Mooring Piles

In July 2020 Core received 15 Holdback and Mooring Suction Piles. This scope of work included unloading the piles from a vessel and moving them into our dock storage space. The pile weights were from 110 MTs to 252 MTs each. Some of the suction piles had to be twin crane lifted to storage. Core is currently supporting the 3D survey of each piles dimensions on our dock. Core will install the deployment rigging onto these piles and load them out for installation in the first week of August for the Mad Dog 2 Platform installation in the Gulf of Mexico. Core’s storage and heavy lift abilities allow us to support and assist subsea and offshore projects.

Shell- Princess Flexible Reels

Core offloaded reels from a vessel using the 850 T Heavy Lift Crane and staged them on the dock. The scope of work included removing the packing from the end terminations and installing new lubricants, seals, orings and Handling Heads on each.

The Handling Heads provide a means for the Flexible Pipes to be lifted by the ends and lowered into the ocean floor for connection to the submersed flow lines that will deliver the Crude from the seafloor to the surface platform. This scope of work is the final process of readiness for the flexible reels to be installed Subsea. At a later date, Core will load these reels onto another vessel for installation.
