Hi Paul

I never noticed before as I thought this facility was all Shepherd Offshore Park, but the word TECHNIP is also on the side of the new tall building there, so maybe they have a stake there and is there home base??

Could be.

We went on the original APACHE (Built Todd Shipyards, Galveston, 1979.) years ago and she was based at Leith. (I think)
BUT I think she was used for larger diameter Steel Pipes and loaded welded sections from a Pipe Fabrication Yard.

She was Renamed STENA APACHE in 1989, CSO APACHE in 1995 and broken up in June 2010. She was also owned by Technip from 1989.
