MWCC Reel Tran-spooling: March 2019

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.

2. Mobilizing and setting up 2- 250 Ton Reel Drive Winches that MWCC owns and a 250 Ton Underoller that were provided from TechnipFMC.
3. Lifting the 200 Ton Reel and Flexible to the Underoller using Core’s 660 Ton Heavy Lift Crane.
4. Spooling the Flexible onto the Empty 11.4M reel while inspection took place.
5. Lifting the flexible now loaded on the 11.4M reel back into the dock storage area and filling the flexible with Nitrogen to preserve the ID and Annulus.
6. Lifting the empty 9.6M reel back into the dock storage area.

While the Seven Artic was at port, Core demobilized several offshore project cargo items from the Murphy Dalmatian Project and then mobilized additional items onto the vessel for the Appomattox Project. These items were oil field related with both the Appomattox Project and the Murphy Dalmatian Project. The Appomattox project is Shell’s largest floating platform in the Gulf of Mexico while the Dalmatian South flow line is the deepest reeled pipe-in-pipe installed by Subsea 7 to date.


Technip- Constellation Project

In January 2018 Core received 6 umbilical reels that were unloaded and stored onto Core’s dockside long term storage. In August 2018 Core loaded the umbilical reels onto a barge that were transpooled to Technip’s vessel, the Deep Blue. This was part of Anadarko’s Constellation Project located in the Gulf of Mexico. Once the reels were transpooled, the barges returned to dock where Core then unloaded the empty reels and loaded them out onto a vessel to return to France. Core Industries long term storage facilities and heavy lift capabilities made it ideal to complete this project.


Subsea Seven: Demobilization and Mobilization

In December 2018, Subsea 7 vessel, Seven Arctic, arrived back at Theodore Industrial Port. Core industries demobilized several offshore project cargo items from the Hess Stampede project and mobilized cargo items onto the vessel for Shell’s Appomattox project.

Discovered in 2005, Stampede is located 115 miles south of Fourchon, LA., in the Gulf of Mexico. The Appomattox is Shell’s largest floating platform in the Gulf of Mexico located 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana.


Hornbeck Offshore

In March 2018, Hornbeck Offshore contracted Core Industries to assist and repair the heel pin area of their 250T knuckle boom crane on the HOS Warland. Two weeks after the Warland was complete, the HOS Woodland arrived for the same repairs. Core assisted in repairing and fixing the heel section of the vessels cranes. Core’s main role in this operation was using two of their own cranes, to lift the boom section of the vessels crane for 8 consecutive days while the repairs could be made.
