Resolve Helps to Restore Jamaican Fuel

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Resolve Marine Group worked to restore a pipeline which carried almost all of Jamaica's fuel supply after it was damaged in a tanker accident.  On June 3, Resolve was contacted by PetroJam, Jamaica's oil refinery, in response to an incident that damaged its main oil and cargo transfer berths. A tanker was scheduled to offload heavy fuel oil on June 2 when it collided with its berth, damaging a crucial 90 ft. section of the dock that housed the intake manifolds for nearly all of the LPG, ethanol, gas, diesel, heavy oil, and kerosene lines, interrupting the flow of all the fuels entering Jamaica. 

Preliminary inspections by Resolve's divers and ROVs found that none of the transfer pipes were salvageable. Resolve identified, flushed, cut, raised, welded, and rerouted seven major pipes in order to restore the island’s fuel supply. Meanwhile, Resolve divers and ROV technicians surveyed the remaining dock's physical infrastructure and assessed the condition of the entire berth and cargo handling systems as part of the engineering analysis required for reopening for operations.
