Load out operations
Following a call-off order from the lay barge, the pipes are collected from their respective pipe stacks.
All pipe numbers are noted and recorded in the log. The pipes are inspected on-site prior to load out, and on deck/onboard the pipe carrier.
The pipes are loaded aboard the vessel and sorted into bays that facilitate correct unloading sequences offshore. A load out report will be issued containing details of all cargo loaded. Identical details will be recorded in the shipping manifest which will follow the vessel to the lay barge.
