Intercontinental Shipping Handles Temporary Import of Pipe Laying Barge

Intercontinental Shipping Limited, member of the Project Logistics Alliance for Trinidad and Tobago, is proud to report the project they have carried out on behalf of their client between August and November 2019. Intercontinental Shipping acted as agency, customs clearance agent & operational logistics provider to temporarily import a 72 meter 2,200 MT pipe laying barge fully equipped with housing and amenities for 60 personnel, to support their client’s installation of a 10” x 4 kilometre pipeline between their production platforms, east off the coast of Trinidad & Tobago.

The equipment was loaded and transported with the clients own asset of a semi-submersible deck barge towed by support tugs from Gabon to Trinidad, without any transit difficulties. Intercontinental Shipping's scope of work included agency processing with authorities for Tug & Semi-Submersible to enter and discharge equipment; logistical support for float off operations; securing a temporary import bond and additional required maritime and customs licenses for the pipe-laying barge to operate in the territory. The barge completed the project with 15 days delay due to weather conditions, after which the equipment was re-examined, and customs cleared for departure back to the origin.

What a job! Congratulations Intercontinental Team!
