$2.5-Million Order For SPM Inventory Buoy Awarded To IMODCO

IMODCO, a unit of AMCA International Corporation and a pioneer offshore marine terminal company, has received an order in excess of $2.5 million from ELF-SEREPCA, a jointly operated French/Cameroon company, for a Single Point Mooring inventory buoy.

C o n s t r u c t e d at Hongkong United Dockyards to IMODCO's design and specifications and under its supervision, the marine terminal will service two locations in the Kole Field offshore Douala in Cameroon's Rio Del Rey, West Africa. It will be utilized as replacement for crude oil terminals now in use — one for berthing, the other for storage.

The SPM is of standard dimensions — 12.5 meters in diameter, 14 feet in depth, with a two-grade MPDU. One grade has two 24- inch piperuns, the second has a 16-inch piperun.

Normally it takes about eight months to construct an offshore Single Point Mooring terminal, but IMODCO was able to offer ELF-SEREPCA one already completed.

The IMODCO concept of speculative buoys was initiated in 1975 and has proven successful as a means of providing operational terminals months ahead of normal construction time. Delivery to ELF-SEREPCA was scheduled for the middle of February.
