Power Umbilical Transpooling Completed at TIP

The transpooling of a 42-kilometer power umbilical from Nexus Barge EB 32 to the McDermott North Ocean 102 was completed at TIP. This is the most complex power umbilical transported to date and is planned for use in the Jack and St. Malo oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico. Over the next few years, these fields are anticipated to house the largest semisubmersible production unit in the Gulf of Mexico with an expected production rate of 94,000 barrels of oil per day. The spooling process took approximately two weeks and was completed in late July.

TIP Loads Scrap Material

In a continuing project with one of the top international recycling companies in the world, and one of the world’s largest motor vehicle manufacturing groups, Theodore Industrial Port loaded another shipload of scrap metal for export. In total, 35,000 tons of scrap were loaded and shipped out. The efficient loading took advantage of the skip pan loading process that was developed by our talented team.

Take an inside look at Theodore Industrial Port’s loading process below.
