In Trinidad, where we began working in June under the largest contract in our history, the customer is contracting the Seamec III, the Gulmar Condor and the Crossmar 14

http://www.rigzone.com/NEWS/article.asp?a_id=49019

I guess Trinidad was where the ship was prior to Curacao....and this was posted prior.  It's getting hard to remember all this stuff.

Haven't seen Lifesong around much lately, and considering all the work done on the other "New" timeline, I'm not asking!!!!!!!       

Now, I wonder what the statutory drydock is all about and why Curacao?   Then, while in drydock, there's a fire???

IIRC, statutory drydock means that the ship MUST go into drydock on a regularly scheduled maintenance program.

Re: Curacao

(snipped)

As part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, with a stable industrious government, Curacao is a reliable partner for all port-related business activities. With its direct links to major markets, modern telecommunications infrastructure and competitive international financial sector, the Ports of Curacao are well-equipped for all business activities.

Strategically located just 35 miles off the coast of Venezuela, Curacao is among the region's most developed and best-organized ports. The port authority is a strong asset to the island spearheading economic development of the ports and attracting reliable partners to the island by offering competitive and efficient service that meets international standards.Throughout the centuries the main port, the Port of Willemstad, which comprises the St. Anna Bay and the Schottegat Bay, has evolved from a few simple quays to a multi-faceted maritime service center, housing several transnational companies including: 

One of the largest crude oil refinery and oil transshipment centers in the region, operated by Petróleos de Venezuela S.A. 

A state-of-the-art Curacao Container Terminal offering an extensive array of cargo facilities, operated by Curacao Port Services (CPS), Inc. 

A dynamic Free Trade Zone managed by Curinde N.V. 

The region's largest dry dock operated by Curacao Dry Dock Company Inc.
 
Modern cruise terminals and state-of-the-art mega cruise facility, managed by Curacao Ports Authority (CPA) N.V.

Here were Chevron's plans for the area - it just looks like it takes a long time to get things in motion:


Sept 12 2005

Chevron Awarded Cardon III License in Venezuela's Rafael Urdaneta Bid Round
SAN RAMON, Calif., Sept. 12 -- Chevron Corporation's local affiliate company in Venezuela has been awarded the exploration license for the Cardon III exploration block, located offshore western Venezuela. The Cardon III block was one of seven blocks offered by the Venezuelan Ministry of Energy and Mines in the Rafael Urdaneta bid round. The block is located in an offshore region with natural gas potential on trend to the north of the prolific Maracaibo producing region
http://www.theautochannel.com/news/2005/09/12/142713.html

Chevron to Start Cardon III Seismic Work in January (2007)
     
BNamericas     
Friday, December 15, 2006 


US oil major Chevron (NYSE: CVX) will start a 3D data collection program in January at the Cardon III hydrocarbons block offshore Venezuela's Falcon state, a company official told BNamericas.
"We are going to shoot seismic for the block and the planning for it is going very well," Chevron Latin America Upstream president Ali Moshiri said.

The program start will depend on equipment availability, he added.

Chevron, which bid US$5.6mn for Cardon III, was formally awarded the block in October 2005 at a ceremony attended by Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez and Moshiri.

Here's another interesting article....Its a long one so I will post the link and if Someone finds something interesting enough They can bring it over....

 http://www.eia.doe.gov/cabs/Venezuela/Oil.html


Hotping - I could just kiss you!!!!!

From that article:
Pipelines

Venezuela has an extensive domestic oil pipeline system, providing transportation from production centers to refineries and coastal export terminals. Currently, the country does not have any export pipelines, but there has been discussion about constructing an oil pipeline to port in Colombia along the Pacific Ocean. This would facilitate greater Venezuelan crude exports to Asia, bypassing the Panama Canal bottleneck or the high costs of shipping around Cape Horn.
------------

I have been wanting for a VERY long time to get corroboration about the pipeline Oduber announced last June.

The above explains how it would work - from Colombia, thru Venezuela- to Aruba.

Here is the article from Oduber:

June 8 2008

Gas from Colombia for the production of electricity and water

ORANJESTAD – As respond on the increasing oil prices and its negative consequences for our island, the government has decided to import gas from Colombia. The electricity supply can be altered to use natural gas instead of fuel oil for an estimate of 20 millions. The production of electricity and water becomes 40 percent cheaper because of this, said Premier Nelson Oduber yesterday. “Besides, it’s going to be cleaner.”

The premier of Aruba made these comments during a press conference yesterday. He is just back from a working visit in Colombia. He took part as listener in the General Meeting of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Colombia. He met with the Colombian president Alvaro Uribe last Sunday discussed among others the energy policy. Uribe suggested supplying Aruba with natural gas, just like Colombia does with Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and Panama. They agreed that the ambassador for the Kingdom will start negotiating today with the Colombian minister of Mining and energy. A delegation of representatives of WEB and Elmar intends to go to Colombia and work out the further details afterwards. This is an historic moment, said Oduber.

The premier says that altering the WEB to use natural gas instead of fuel oil must be possible in one year. WEB will take care of the costs, about 20 millions. The natural gas will have to be transported by ship in the beginning, but the construction of a pipeline must be considered on the medium- and long run. This pipeline will have to run via Venezuela to our island. Oduber thinks that this may take about 3 years. Apart from using the gas for the production of electricity and water, it can also be used for cars and in the houses. Oduber does not abandon the thoughts of other alternatives like wind- and sun energy, but these can only supply the island with a limited amount of electricity and water. Other energy sources like pet-coke and pitch are too expensive, says the premier. Also the deepwater cooling is no option. “We do not have deepwater here.”

Aqualectra-director Anton Casperson cannot judge the Aruban situation, but he considers 40 percent cheaper production costs for Curacao not reasonable. “Gas is indeed a serious option for us; especially from environmental considerations in combination with wind.”

Aqualectra is not in negotiations with the gas suppliers as yet. “The investments are high, and you must earn these back.” Aqualectra is in the process of adjusting the long-term plans as committed in the Plan 2020.
