Can you please ask your subcontractor, Mike Gordon from Inverness, who is working for you guys offshore Gabon on board the Stingray to please refrain from posting updates on Facebook about the issues we have had onboard with welding.

He is starting to upset a few people.

Rotterdam, the Netherlands, 10 november 2014 – Van Oord has been awarded the EPC contract for the replacement of a dual 10 km long oil export line. The client is Shell Gabon. The execution period runs from November 2014 to the summer of 2015. The export line runs from the Gamba terminal, 200 NM south of Port of Gentil, to a pipeline end manifold (PLEM). The existing 30 inch line will be replaced by a looped dual 22 inch sea line system with pigging facilities allowing for inspection and cleaning. Van Oord will deploy shallow water pipe lay barge Stingray. The project contributes to Gabon’s export of energy and is important for the economic development in the region. – See more and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan.
