UNDERWATER OXY-ARC BURNING
The exothermic cutting process is often used during offshore repairs and construction. Here we identify the risks involved in underwater burning and review the proper training and equipment that are essential to the safety of divers.




 
John Roat is a working diver and a surface air/gas and a saturation supervisor for Legacy Offshore diving and construction company.

 
 As a working diver and a surface air/gas saturation supervisor for the Legacy Offshore, LLC (Broussard, Louisiana) diving and construction company, John Roat spends a lot of time underwater serving the domestic and international oil and gas industries. He estimates that about 90 percent of underwater burning is done in these industries.



When conducting offshore repairs and construction, Roat often uses the exothermic cutting process which releases energy in the form of heat, and uses oxygen as an exciter and the steel rods become the fuel. As long as the oxygen flow is maintained through the torch and rod, the rod will continue to burn and consume at a temperature between 8,000 deg F to 10,000 deg F, and burn ferrous and non-ferrous materials such as concrete, rock, barnacles and other sea growth.

John Roat was a member of Underwater Demolition Teams 21, UDT 11 and SEAL Team 1. He went to work for Taylor Diving and Salvage the end of 1969 as a tender and broke out at Taylor Diving in 1970. He taught rigging, open tanks, harbor and burning for one year at the College of Oceaneering, and authored “Oxy-Arc Underwater Burning Class”, a 90-minute training video and manual, for Oceans Technology.

Golden opportunity for Venezuela maritime talks, says Grenada senator
Published on Monday, May 24, 2010

ST GEORGE'S, Grenada -- The agreement formally defining the maritime boundary between Grenada and Trinidad and Tobago is “enormously beneficial’’ for Grenada and the right thing to have been done by Prime Minister Tillman Thomas and his government, trade unionist Chester Humphrey has said.

 
Grenada's Foreign Minister Peter David ratifying the maritime treaty 

“The government got it absolutely right. If there is one thing the NDC did since coming into office that is right – absolutely right and on the button – was to delimit,’’ Humphrey said in a weekend interview with broadcaster George Grant.

The Labour representative in the Senate, Humphrey said “objective conditions’’ prevailed that made it the right time to have delimited the Grenada-Trinidad maritime boundary.

The two countries, under the auspices of their foreign ministries, established a Joint Boundary Commission to negotiate the treaty. After a year of work, the commission reached an agreement that was signed by the leaders of Grenada and Trinidad and Tobago on April 21, and later ratified by their foreign affairs ministers.

Humphrey, who attended the formal signing of the treaty in Trinidad, said the agreement paves the way for exploration in sections of Grenada’s waters, where seismic research was conducted between 1979 and 1983 by the then People’s Revolutionary Government.

He said researchers “established that Grenada is located just off the Continental Shelf, and just off the Continental Shelf into Grenadian territorial waters, are large reserves of hydrocarbon material. From the information I have, the actual quantities were not precise; but there were sufficient quantities to make exploration profitable and a reasonable economic venture.’’

Humphrey described the maritime treaty as the “second big lift off,’’ after the construction and opening of Maurice Bishop International Airport at Point Saline in the 1980s.

The Senator, however, claimed to be “saddened’’ that government is not using the signing of the treaty to greater advantage.

 
Senator Chester Humpgrey (2nd from left) at the maritime treaty signing in Trinidad 

“It is the government of Grenada that has done this and they have to sell it,’’ he argued. “They have to use this to a build a sense of hope. The NNP understands this. This is why the NNP attempted to oppose the signing.’’

The opposition refused an invitation to be briefed on the treaty on the “Delimitation of Marine and Submarine Areas,’’ or to attend the signing ceremony in Port of Spain.

The party, led by Keith Mitchell, received minimal response to a call for Grenadians to wear black as a sign of opposition to the treaty, and threatened to “bring as much people as possible to the official parliament centre to show our complete opposition’’ to the maritime agreement.

Humphrey believes that Grenada should press ahead now with negotiations on reaching a maritime agreement with Venezuela, and repeated an appeal for the country to join ALBA – the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America.

ALBA, initially proposed in 2004 by Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, is an international cooperation organisation based on the idea of social, political, and economic integration between the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Three CARICOM nations – Dominica, St Vincent and Antigua & Barbuda – are full members of ALBA. Grenada has said that it is not yet ready to join the group and maintains ******* status.

“Grenada can no longer afford to stay out of ALBA,’’ Humphrey said. “President Chavez presents a golden opportunity that Grenada must seize with two hands. This is a new world, with new alliances being forged – economic and business alliances – and we cannot allow ourselves to be left out in the cold on the basis of old time, right-wing, non-progressive, stale and outworn ideological biases.’’

Humphrey acknowledged that the United States may have its “quarrel’’ with Venezuela and President Chavez, whom he described as a “South American nationalist.’’ He suggested that Grenada could have cordial working relations with Venezuela and President Chavez, without becoming “an extension of that quarrel’’ between the US and the oil-rich South American Republic.

“If the old ruling classes of Venezuela were to retake power, delimiting with Grenada would become an almost impossibility,’’ Humphrey warned. “Do not forget that it is the old ruling classes who were prepared to go to war against Guyana over territorial issues.’’

UPDATE 1-Valero says Aruba oks refinery tax settlement deal
Mon, May 31 2010
* Valero to pay government 200 million Afl.

* Valero also to pay a minimum tax of $10 million per year

By Janet McGurty

TORONTO, May 31 (Reuters) - Aruba approved a tax settlement deal on Saturday for Valero Energy Corp's (VLO.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) idled 235,000 barrel per day refinery on the Caribbean island, a company spokesman said on Monday.

The agreement leads the way to resolve all tax issues pertaining to the Valero Aruba Refinery, and as Valero considers strategic alternatives for the plant, a settlement will help make the refinery more viable for Valero and for any future buyer.

"This gives clarity to the cost structure and an idea for potential future costs. It may lead to some decision making," said Bill Day, a spokesman for the company.

Under the terms of the settlement, Valero would pay the government 200 million Aruba florin and make a minimum tax payment of $10 million per year.

The refinery was shut in July due to financial losses caused by the poor economy, the narrow price differential between heavy sour and light sweet crude oils, and the disputed issues.

Valero has kept all employees on the payroll until the June 1 deadline for the Parliament to approve the settlement.

Call for boycott

THE catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is still not resolved, but it is already the biggest environmental disaster of maritime history. Something to be proud of as humans.

This is a call to take action against those who made this possible: British Petroleum (BP). If you need to buy any products related to oil, please do not buy products from BP. The time has come to a stand against all environmental criminals among us. Boycott their products and let's hope they stop to exist, as many birds, animals and entire ecosystems will cease to exist at the hands of the greed of these criminals.

BP's shares in free fall and there has already spent nearly one billion U.S. dollars at this problem. It costs more because they (BP) have not been able to close the leak and because the cleaning is a long time will continue. Let we all still contribute nothing to buy BP.

Let this not just a lesson to them, by boycotting certain products for environmental criminals, we can finally send a clear message that their behavior is no longer being accepted.

Let this be a warning and a lesson to Curacao. We know that Curacao is looking for fossil energy resources in the coastal waters of the island, soon, the government in search of gas and oil wells. We've seen what can happen if things go wrong (Gulf of Mexico), and thanks to the refinery, we know how much our government values our health and our environment, which gives us the guarantee that such a disaster will not happen here ? Who guarantees us that winning and gas or oil in a clean way will happen?

We were at green alternatives to look and not for oil, we should invest in reusable and clean energy and not polluting sources, we should all companies need to stop with their actions pollute the environment, and there are a lot in Curacao.

What can you do to help:
- Do not buy products from polluters.
- Protest against environmental offenders.
- Inform yourself well on all factors.
- Help the environment of the island through your life greener.

Green Force has a number of ideas and actions in a row needed to put on the island. For more information visit: www.greenforcecuracao.com, subpages 'Green Tips' and 'Needs'.

Businesses and government of this island should understand that it is no longer so can continue with the environmental violations, illegal dumping, deficient waste disposal, oil dependency, polluting cars, failed legislation on protection of mangroves and underwater ecosystems,
litter, illegal construction, excavation and damping.

Each company will sooner or later have to believe that they will be held accountable for the environmental damage related to their business. This is a trend worldwide, and those who do not participate in the move to environmentally friendly activities, products and solutions will sooner or later perish on their own mentality. You as a consumer can play a hand of help.

Green Force would like to thank everyone who has been committed to the environment and nature.

Valero restarts refinery

June 4, 2010, 13:16 (GMT -04:00)

Print this article 

ORANGE CITY - The oil refinery of Valero restart within 90 days. The target date for full resumption of work is September 1. Valero is investing 50 million U.S. dollars (90 million florin) to make this possible.

This was yesterday afternoon in the Cabinet announced by Prime Minister Mike Eman (AVP), the Minister of Finance, Utilities, Energy and Communications Mike Meza (AVP), Valero director Ray Buckley and Kim Bowers, executive vice president of the oil company. The reason for this so-called turnaround was "significantly improved the economic situation" indicated. In January agreed new tax regime for Valero and the abolition of export-BBO, both approved last week by parliament, were also important for the restart, so Valero and Prime Minister Eman.

All, more than 600 employees of Valero remain employed and contract workers are back in service. This would certainly have secured thousands of jobs. Valero director Buckley did not address the question of how many contract workers will be attracted. The turnaround means that starting with a major maintenance of the refinery and the implementation of a number of projects at the refinery back ready to make oil processing. This also attracted the contract workers.

Valero is investing 50 million U.S. dollars. After the turnaround, the refinery back the same amount of barrels, 235,000 barrels per day, producing as an end one year ago. Both sides stress that the restart of the refinery made on condition that the price margins for heavy sour crude is not plummet again and no catastrophe occurs. After the restart Valero continues to monitor price margins. "The government has done its part, is now up to us to restart the refinery and as efficiently as possible. These two factors we can control themselves. What happens to the world economy, we do not control, "said Kim Bowers. Eman Premier remains optimistic. "I think the new tax regime, the fact that BBO is abolished and science by Valero that this government is right there to help, will ensure that the operation of the refinery remains consistent, even with financial setbacks."

No partner
The quest for "strategic partners" to keep the refinery running continues. Initially, the rumor that the Venezuelan PDVSA to restart implicated. During the press conference Valero director Ray Buckley that there have been talks with various parties. "Our policy is that we will not name names." Eman said later told this newspaper that Petrobras, Pemex and PDVSA, and in particular the combined Pacific Rubiales / Ecopetrol were interested in the refinery.

Valero may reopen its Aruba plant
June 3, 2010

alero Energy Corp. said Thursday it may restart its Aruba refinery later this year “unless economic conditions deteriorate.”

San Antonio-based Valero closed the 235,000-barrel-a-day plant in the Caribbean in July, saying the refinery had been losing tens of millions of dollars a month.

According to a company statement, however, “economic conditions have improved to the point where restarting and operating the refinery is possible.”

Valero has kept the plant's employees on the payroll while it's considered “strategic options” that it said could include selling it. Although Valero said it continues to mull the options, a tax settlement recently approved by Aruba's Parliament helped prompt serious consideration of a restart.

“The tax settlement agreement was a very big positive step forward,” Valero spokesman Bill Day said in an e-mailed statement, giving the company “visibility on future taxes so that it could make the decision to restart.”

Kim Bowers, Valero's executive vice president and general counsel, praised Aruba's political leadership for negotiating the tax settlement, adding, “We also appreciate the patience and flexibility of our employees and the Aruban people during the shutdown period.”

Valero said it soon will begin refinerywide maintenance, which is expected to take about 90 days.

INTERESTING STUFF

Divers from Legacy Offshore are using a thundermole, or a tank with water jets attached, to channel through the cement-like clay that stands between Hulin and what he believes to be two 3,000-pound chests and a third smaller chest, all filled with pirate’s riches.

The offshore diving company agreed to join the effort after Hulin used a bottom-profiler, or fish-finder, to capture sonar images of the site. A Legacy Offshore manager witnessed the sonar images as they were taken to confirm “there’s really something there.”

“We think the reading shows metal down there,” said Legacy Offshore operations manager Mark Corbin. “There’s a real good chance.”

Venezuela lawmakers formalize seizure of oil rigs

 
Published on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 Email To Friend    Print Version 

By Marianna Parraga

CARACAS,Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuela's parliament declared on Tuesday that 11 oil rigs seized from US company Helmerich and Payne were now state-owned property, formalizing a move by the government to nationalize them.

Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez said last week Venezuela would nationalize the rigs following a year-long dispute over pending payments by state oil company PDVSA.

Most lawmakers voted to list the 11 rigs as a public utility after the energy and mines commission brought the motion.

On Saturday, Ramirez said the OPEC member would pay Helmerich and Payne book value for the equipment and would agree a price in talks with the company.

Socialist President Hugo Chavez has nationalized most of the Latin American country's oil industry, starting with major heavy-crude projects worth billions of dollars in 2007, then taking over dozens of smaller service companies last year.

At the weekend, Ramirez said the government would not let the private sector idle equipment in pay disputes with PDVSA and did not rule out further nationalizations.

On Friday, PDVSA said it had reached agreements with 32 other companies over tariffs after the state firm fell behind in payments when oil prices collapsed in 2008.

Venezuela, Vietnam sign joint oil venture contract

 
Published on Friday, July 2, 2010 Email To Friend    Print Version 

CARACAS, Venezuela (AFP) -- Venezuela and PetroVietnam have signed a contract to form a joint venture to pump and refine crude in the Orinoco delta area, the state oil giant PDVSA announced on Wednesday.

The Venezuelan concern dubbed PDVSA Petromacareo will focus on "production and refining of ultraheavy crude in the Junin 2 bloc of the Orinoco oil belt," in eastern Venezuela, the statement said.

The contract is for 25 years.

The partners hope to refine 200,000 barrels per day of heavy crude starting in 2016, PDVSA said.

Half of the production would be sent to Vietnam which would hold a 40-percent stake in the venture and pay Venezuela 584 million dollars to take part, officials said.

PDVSA is South America's biggest oil producer.

The reason for switching to a self-powered gas called on Valero lower cost and the fact that gas is a cleaner source of energy. Monday, a delegation from the oil company to Aruba to matter to discuss with the government. Should the construction of the plant continue to Valero or a portion of the electricity generated by sales of water and energy-WEB. "According to initial calculations, this WEB for a cost reduction of 20 percent can do," said the prime minister.

Since then the Government's "high level" talks with Venezuela, where the gas would come from. "We have now received a positive response from Venezuela. The idea is that there is a committee, which includes engineers from both countries. This committee will look at the two facilities, a pipeline or an LNG facility, "said Premier Mike Eman (AVP).

Eman explains both possibilities. "If we want gas, from Venezuela to Aruba will be charged. It goes through large tanks. But it takes a lot of money. The price of gas relative to fuel it partially destroyed. In order to cope, there is the possibility of an LNG facility in Aruba to build.

In such a system may liquefied gas - a little easier to transport than just gas - are converted into gas that is suitable for production, "said Eman.

"Another possibility is a gas pipeline between Venezuela and Aruba to build. For this we need the cooperation required of Venezuela. "Proudly shows Eman know that the government of the South American country's first call for proposals Aruba positively received. "The creation of such a pipeline will be approximately one and a half years to complete. The committee should go and see whether such a pipeline is technically and financially feasible, and what the consequences for both countries. "

Electricity
The Prime Minister dismisses any concerns already established path. "If the gas through a pipeline Venezuela provide, they also slam the lead when there is disagreement. But then prepared to Aruba. Web has been informed that it was technically able to within fifteen minutes to switch to gas fuel. In this way we have always assured that we have electricity. "


Gas
According to the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs is the policy of the Venezuelan government aims to diversify the energy sector, including by developing the natural gas industry. In the east of Venezuela in the Paria Peninsula become major gas project realized toe. In addition, the Venezuelan government signed an agreement with Trinidad & Tobago for joint exploration and exploitation of gas fields in the maritime border. Last year in Latin America discussed the establishment of a 8000 km long pipeline, in addition to Venezuela include Brazil and Argentina calling.
