TIP Offloads 3,500 Pieces of Pipe

Over 3,500 pieces of pipe are continuing to be offloaded for the months of October and November at Theodore Industrial Port. Spread out over three different shipments, the pipe arrived by barge from Port of Beaumont and transferred at dockside to truck to be delivered to Technip’s Theodore facility. Two of the pipe shipments were put into our onsite storage facility, where it will be trucked out at a later date.

As part of the Jack/St. Malo project for Chevron, all of the pipe will eventually find its way to the Jack/St. Malo deepwater oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico. For more information on our stevedoring services, or warehousing options, please visit our website or contact us directly.

Theodore Industrial Port Conducts Transpooling Operation

Theodore Industrial Port helped prepare and oversee the transpooling of 11,000 Meters of umbilical earlier this week. The 3,200 MT carousel system, located at our deep water facility, was able to spool the umbilical onto the installation vessel while we helped load out the vessel with the remaining requirements.

This transpooling project was a part of the Na Kikia Field located in the Gulf of Mexico approximately 140 miles South East of New Orleans, Louisiana. It has recoverable reserves of 300 million barrels of oil equipment and a production rate of around 11,000 bdp oil and 500 million cubic feet of gas a day.


Theodore Industrial Port Helps Spool 11,000 Meters of Umbilical Onto Vessel

At Theodore Industrial Port this week a 3,200 MT carousel owned by Deep Down, Inc., spooled 11,000 meters of umbilical onto the vessel, Skandi Neptune. The carousel system allows customers to spool the umbilical onto the installation vessel and simultaneously load out the vessel with the remaining requirements. Once on the vessel, the subsea umbilical is deployed on the seabed to supply necessary control and chemicals to subsea oil and gas wells.

Since September of 2011, Deep Down’s 3,200 MT carousel has been permanently located at Theodore Industrial Port. Theodore Industrial Port’s deepwater port is an ideal location for Deep Down to provide its customers with umbilical storage capability on its carousel, which in turn provides substantial savings to the customer when mobilizing for an offshore job. Deep Down, Inc. is an oilfield services company serving the worldwide offshore exploration and production industry.

TIP Continues to Excel in Port of Operations Work

During the month of July, Theodore Industrial Port handled several heavy lift projects that involved the use of our 750 T capacity crane. Several subsea cable reels were unloaded off their vessels and placed into our dockside storage. In average, the reels weighed around 300 T each.

For more than 30 years, Theodore Industrial Port has helped deliver quality services to the Oil Field and Pipeline Industries for companies such as Subsea 7, Exxon, Chevron, BP, and Heerema to name a few. Our facility located in Theodore, Alabama, has served as a Base of Operations for several of its oil field clients. Theodore Industrial Port is used by these companies and contractors to store and mobilize or demobilize specific equipment to and from their Gulf of Mexico projects.
