    I hope most of you remember the fight to keep OPEN  LOOP LNG plants out of the Gulf. An engineering firm just started design of an LNG Liquefaction plant that is set to be placed in the West Delta Blocks. I don’t know how this facility will be designed to operate, but people need to be aware of this before the public comment periods start. I know Mike Lane will be very interested in this if no one else.

     

     

     

    The Honghua Group Limited has awarded Wood a $12 million front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for its liquefied natural gas (LNG) platform development in the West Delta area of the Gulf of Mexico, Wood announced Tuesday.

    “We are very excited to be a part of this ingenious project,” Andrew Stewart, CEO for Wood’s Asset Solutions Americas business, said in a written statement.

    According to Wood, the FEED’s primary objective will be to finalize the design of the world’s first offshore platform-based natural gas liquefaction and storage facility. The company noted that it recently completed the project’s pre-FEED work. The scope of work under the FEED includes:

    • The onshore gas pre-treatment plant configuration and layouts
    • General utilities
    • Feed gas processing and compression
    • Transportation and delivery via repurposed pipelines from the existing onshore Toca and Venice, La., facilities to the LNG facilities 10 miles offshore

    Wood stated that the offshore liquefaction platform – slated for completion approximately three years from now – will receive gas from Texas’ Permian Basin and liquefy and store it for the global export market. The company also noted that it will compile and develop the necessary technical documentation for a Deep Water Port (DWP) permit application to the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD).

    The full offshore gas liquefaction facility will be designed to produce up to 4.2 million tonnes per year of LNG and to store 300,000 cubic meters of LNG, Wood said in its announcement Tuesday. Other companies collaborating on the FEED include EnTX GasTek Global Ltd., GE unit Baker Hughes and Braemar Technical Services, it added.

    TEAM JO-JO:

    Me been off the water 8 days, (not a good sign) in a row, needed to make a trip, had no intel, and/or first hand info on what going on down in our Disney World known as Delacroix, needed a fishing machine, (Big Curtis & Big May had to cancel) for a first mate, who you going to call, Eastofmrgo (aka Big Bud) of course, he catch fish when no one can. So be he & me running around the various spot numbers in search of the elusive Silverwonders.

    SIGNS:

    • Loveofthepack, Big Darlene, Big Jeff & Oneofthepack just return from losing 691,200.00 $econds of me fishing life, as we journey through 8 days of the Vegas strip, creating many memories, many moments, and having a fun filled trip, while enjoying each & all of the seconds on it.
    • Once again me be the fish on this trip, me glad the Silverwodners don’t play poker, cause if they did me would never win / catch any.
    • Me just keep telling meself, me rather be lucky at fishing then playing cards
    • Great night sleep me though me be too excited to sleep
    • Up early loaded up the FORD transporter, off to Waffle House in Oak Harbor to pick up Big Bud, he already there, we load up and we off.
    • No wildlife sightings along Hwy 11 or 90
    • No boats on Hwy, gas stations, boat launches, WHAT UP!!!!! Not a good sign
    • Passed on Waffle House, McDonnel and Last Stop food store, need to get back on me eating right diet.
    • Check point Able water level about normal
    • Check point Bravo, no water moving at Reggio Canal
    • Driver down Delacroix Hwy looked scary, no activity at all, no trucks, cars, people, etc. etc. deserted it be looking
    • Arrived at the home of the Bay Flat Sr, me think she was having withdrawal symptoms form lack of use, looked all dried out and full of cob webs.
    • Hoist made a real eerie sound as she was lowered down to the water, me had to look up to make sure the pipe was turning
    • Quick transfer of gear to Bay Flat Sr
    • Yamaha Dream Machine was on full alert, she roared into action with one turn of the key.
    • Was going to spot at Lionel’s for some go juice , but they had 4-5 commercial boats gassing up so we passed, we had a tank and a ¼ to run around on
    • Off to spot # 18 to start our day

    CONDITIONS:

    • Perfect
    • N.W wind 15-20 mph steady all day, had some gust up to 30-35 mph
    • Mostly sunny, had a cloud or two around
    • Cool temps, (wind kept it cool0 kept jump suite on all day
    • Water level about normal
    • Water temp 68.9F
    • Tide falling most of the day, showed signs of coming in around 11:11 AM
    • Water clarity on a scale of 1-7 was:
      • Spot # 18 a 3 minus
      • # 61C a 2 plus
      • !7C a 4
      • #5 2 a 2 plus
      • #54 a 3

      • 51B a 3 minus
      • 51c a 3 minus
    • Zone one had the best looking water Bay Batola S.W. corner had a 4 on the scale
    • Did not see one boat in Zone 1 or 2
    • Saw 4-5 in Twin Pipeline
    • Had 3-4 boats just going out as we coming in at 1:30 PM

    TECHNIQUE / STRATEGY:

    • Be safe
    • Have fun
    • Put some run time on Bay Flat Sr. and Yamaha Dream Machine
    • This be me daily therapy for ALL me aliments
    • Gather Intel for future trips, and to share with fisherperson, (on rodnreel.com) to help assist them in their choice of areas to fish, lures to use and presentation of same to the elusive Silverwonders.
    • Make the milk run to see how all our spot numbers looked, and what the water condition was in those areas
    • Get meself back into the groove of fishing 3-4 days a week
    • Russel up some fish for Big Bud and his family, he has been off the water for 3 plus weeks.
    • Find a spot # with the seven fundamentals / criteria of catching:         
     
    • WIND AT YOUR BACK: (Challenge one for the day, but with 2 Cajun anchors our we managed to get the Bay Flat Sr on the correct angel to catch and with the wind partly at our back, wind did not help with Oak River Troll, hard to do wind and tide in different directions.)
     
    • MOVING WATER: (Moving all day, tail end of a falling tide, it was real strong in some areas, start to come in around 11:00 AM, we just kept moving around to see I we could find some current lines to fish.)
     
    • WATER CALRITY: (Water clarity challenge # 2, not looking good, zone 1 & 2 on the map water had an average of a 3 minus on the scale of 1-7, not good.)
     
    • HOLDING FISH: (Spot 18, 52, and 51A we got into a little crazy 1 minute of catching, 52 produced the most 16t)
     
    • PATIENTS: ( Needed and had some today, we steaked out one spot and sat there for a good while, catching 1 every now and then, not for Big Bud todays trip would have been an early home trip, as me could not catch a cold.
     
    • SKILL: (Bring Big Bud along, setting up and fishing areas we did the Oak River Troll in, we knew from doing the Troll that they had fish in the area.)
     
    • LUCK: (Very lucky day, most fish caught without us even knowing they were on the line, between the wind, light bites, and tide it was hard to tell if you had a fish on.)
    • Anchor up cast & retrieve slowly along the bottom, with a twitch every now and then, tight lining…………………………………99% FISH CUAGHT THIS WAY
     
    • Oak River Troll (ORT)………………..NOTHING
     
    • Reverse Oak River Troll (RORT) ………..DID NTO TRY
     
    • Oak River Skim (ORS) ……………DID NOT TRY

    OUR REMUNERATIONS

    • Lived to fish another day
    • (31) NMR Silverwonders 9 throw backs
    • (11) Reds (6) throw backs
    • (3) Oyster shells
    • (1) bushel of grass
    • Fishing hard all day with one of the best fisherperson me know, Big Bud (aka Eastofmrgo) and loving every second of it
    • Confirmed that Big Bud still has his MOJO, without that we would have had a real slow day, and very little to show for our efforts
    • Crashed when me got home, Vegas life, plus day on the water equaled a good day sleep, now for the night sleep it will be a challenge.
    • Got me much needed day of relaxation, breathing the Delacroix air, and chasing Silverwonders
    • Best fishing trip of my life, until the next one.

    FISHERPERSON OF THE DAY:

    Bug Bud is back and he no look back, he be all over the Silverwodners & Reds, he be fisherperson of the day for sure.

    SUGGESTIONS:

    Water clarity not that good looking, but the fish don’t seem to mind, me think we only have 3-4 more weeks of inside fishing left then the Silverwodners will be gone, (re: quantity & quality)  from the inside, best make as many trips as you can while they still around. We caught fish at each location, but could not find them feeding when the south winds come back it will be fish on, on, on, on!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PONDER OF THE DAY:

    The curriculum to try when all else fails is Again.

    O & A:

    How can there be "fishing self-help GROUPS"?

    FUTURE TEAM JO-JO’S next foray AGENDA:

    Loveofthepack on the road, she and friends will be up D.C. way for a run / walk, me will be a bachelor from Wednesday through Monday any takers.
    • Tuesday BR town Bass Pro shop
    • Wednesday fish
    • Thursday fish
    • Friday fish
    • Saturday fish
    • Sunday fish.
    Good Fishing   Team Jo-Jo & Oneofthepack

Most customers just caught a handful of trout. A couple of 15 to 20's. Some great redfish reports. Good news..tomorrow is going to be more beautiful than today. Hotspots..if you are a bird fisherman..Fourhorse lake. A couple of boats said there were birds diving in some spots in Fourhorse today. If you like to fish under the birds, some early and get in on that action. Other reports came from Lake John. One of the boats that caught a limit were fishing with matrix lemonhead. The best redfish report came from the Pointe Fienne area..three limits out of there.
