101-Year-Old Patient Receives Surgery Aboard USNS Comfort

first_imgBy Dialogo June 09, 2011 I am happy that age is not an impediment for this form of surgery. Unfortunately, I know medical personnel that create barriers for performing these procedures. I congratulate this team for such work. thanks once more from JAMAICA Command & U.S. 4th Fleet Public Affairs Personnel embarked aboard Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) performed a cataract removal surgery on a 101-year-old woman while anchored off the coast of Tumaco, Colombia, June 6. Irene Becerra, a native of Araño, Colombia, arrived at the Escuela Max Seídel medical site, June 4, complaining of a headache and loss of sight in her left eye, which the Continuing Promise 2011 (CP11) medical team later determined was caused by a cataract. Lt. Cmdr. Francine Worthington, the patient administration department head aboard Comfort, performed Becerra’s initial screening. “When I first met Irene, she immediately greeted me with her radiant smile and comforting hands,” said Worthington. “Initially, I didn’t even know she was 101. When asked what the secret to her longevity was, she told me, ‘God’s blessing’.” Shortly after her surgical screening with Worthington, Becerra was approved for cataract removal surgery. “I was nervous at first,” said Luz Becerra, the daughter of Becerra, of the trip out to Comfort. “We left it all up to God, but with the wonderful flight crew and medical staff, the flight was calm,” she added. Becerra received her surgery aboard Comfort the morning of June 6. After a two-hour surgery and a recovery period, Becerra, the oldest surgical patient for the CP11 team to date, will soon gain vision from her left eye. “I want to thank God, the medical staff aboard Comfort, and everyone else involved in making this procedure possible,” said Becerra. Worthington said that she was honored to help Becerra throughout the screening process, which led to her undergoing the life-changing surgery. She added that this surgery is representative of the United States’ commitment to the people of Colombia. “A smile is the beginning of love, and works of love are works of peace,” said Worthington. “The partnership begins one person at a time. Ms. Becerra represents the beauty of the Colombian people.” last_img read more

Crondall to support Siccar Point’s Cambo development

first_imgCrondall Energy, a floating production and subsea specialist, has secured a frame agreement contract with Siccar Point Energy to provide support on the Cambo field, West of Shetland.The support will initially cover the identification and evaluation of FPSO options for the development and pre-FEED technical assurance of the subsea design, Crondall said on Monday.The FPSO scope of work includes consideration of a range of FPSO options, including newbuilds, re-deployments and conversions. The FPSO studies will consider the suitability of the various options from the perspective of their suitability for operations in the challenging West of Shetland environment, as well as compliance and suitability for operations on the UK continental shelf (UKCS).The subsea engineering work scope involves peer review and peer assist activities on the preFEED subsea design, including flow assurance and operability reviews. Crondall is providing Siccar Point with an assurance service which is suited to operators implementing the latest cost-efficient contracting models.Duncan Peace, Crondall Energy’s Managing Director, said “As an independent consultancy with expertise across floating and subsea systems we are delighted to be working with Siccar Point and to be playing a critical role in developing the Cambo field.”Crondall Energy is currently working as client engineer on the Lancaster field project, also off the west coast of Shetland, for Hurricane Energy where it is supporting the operator with the delivery of the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, the Aoku Mizu, which will be used during the EPS phase of the field’s development. The FPSO recently sailed away from a shipyard in Dubai for completion of a final scope of work in Rotterdam before proceeding to the Lancaster field located in the West of Shetland area.The Cambo Field is located 125 km north-west of the Shetland Islands and lies 30 km southwest of Rosebank and 50 km north of Schiehallion. The field was discovered in 2002 and has five wells drilled into the structure. Siccar Point acquired a 100% operated interest in the field from the takeover of OMV (U.K.) in January 2017 and brought Shell UK in as a partner in May 2018.Siccar Point Energy recently celebrated a successful well test on the Cambo field, with better than anticipated results. The well, drilled using the Seadrill-owned semi-submersible drilling rig West Hercules, will now also be incorporated into the field development plan and has been suspended for use as a future development.Crondall Energy will execute the FPSO evaluation from its Winchester and London offices, while the subsea engineering work scopes will be provided from the Aberdeen office.last_img read more
