Caicos Petroleum Services Establishes Transfer Facility

Caicos Petroleum Services recently announced the establishment of a ship-to-ship oil transfer facility in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The company's activities are under the direction of Capt. J.O. Karstrom Jr., who is also the Services' U.S. agent.

Caicos Petroleum Services was formed by several Chicago area businessmen led by Raymond E.

Cross, president of Federal Chicago Corp., and chairman of Federal Die Casting Co.

The transfer area is in the lee of the island of West Caicos on the east side of the Caicos Passage.

The Caicos Petroleum Services facility provides full service for lightering operations, and air service to and from the United States. Hotels and a medical clinic are located on the nearby island of Providenciales. Ships stores and spare parts are available, and the company plans to provide bunkering services in the near future.

The operation is insured by Lloyd's of London, and includes a personnel boat for crew changes, utility boat, 10-foot by 20-foot sea cushion fenders, hoses, communications gear, oil dispersant, and related transfer tackle. Mooring masters are provided by International Pilots of Atlantic Highlands, N.J.
