    J Ray encounters weather-related problems offshore Argentina

    News // July 4, 2003
    J Ray McDermott, a subsidiary of McDermott International, has announced that it recently encountered weather-related problems on a pipelay project off the coast of southern Argentina.

    On June 11, 2003, due to a sudden change in the weather, the DB60 was unable to abandon the pipe being laid before the weather conditions caused the pipe to break with subsequent damage to the barge stinger which is used to guide and lay the pipe on theocean floor. No personnel were injured.

    J Ray suspended work on the pipelay operations of the project and is currently assessing the financial and operational impact of the incident.
