IMODCO Awarded Contract By Esso Suez For Mooring Terminal Offshore Egypt

IMODCO of Los Angeles, a unit of AMCA International Corporation and pioneer offshore marine terminal company, has been awarded a contract by Esso Suez, Inc. for a catenary anchor leg mooring (CALM) terminal. This unit for Esso is designed to securely moor tankers of up to 85,000 dwt, primarily for the loading of crude oil in the Gulf of Suez, offshore the East Coast of Egypt. The value of the contract was not disclosed.

This terminal, nearly 28 feet in diameter and 10 feet deep, will be installed in 95 feet of water. In addition to a 16-inch diameter line to load crude oil, the cargo system includes a 12-inch diameter line to simultaneously unload tanker de- ballast water to an on-shore treatment facility.

IMODCO installations are a common sight in Egyptian waters. An inventory buoy was provided to Arabian Petroleum Pipeline Company (SUMED) in 1982 for Sidi- Kerir in the Mediterranean for replacement use when two previous buoys sold to SUMED in 1976 underwent overhaul. Two other IMODCO buoys remain in operation for the same company in the Gulf of Suez.
