Petrotrin and PdVSA sign two-year health services agreement

Sep 05, 2001 02:00 AM

Petrotrin, Trinidad and Tobago's national oil company, will provide emergency medical service to workers employed with Venezuela's PdVSA oil company who are involved in a drilling operation in Deltana's platform on the gulf of Paria near Trinidad.
Petrotrin and PdVSA signed a two-year health services agreement recently, officials said. It will offer the services to workers employed in the Plataforma Deltana Project, PdVSA's first offshore drilling operation in the last 20 years. It involves the drilling of 10 exploration and delineation wells and the design and construction of production facilities in Venezuelan waters, some 60 miles South East of Trinidad.

The closest PdVSA facility on the Venezuelan mainland for transporting injured workers from the platform is located some 250 miles away. Petrotrin will provide the medical services through its Augustus Long Hospital in Point-a-Pierre in Trinidad's southern region.
The hospital offers facilities for both minor and major surgical procedures, specialized intensive care, 24-hour nursing and bed care with medical practitioners on call seven days a week, a pharmaceutical dispensary and an ambulance service.
Petrotrin will provide a communication tower at Point Galeota in the south eastern region that would link the drilling platforms to the helicopter base at Perdanales and to PdVSA's project office in Puerto La Cruz in Venezuela. This facility will provide direct radio communication links between drilling platforms and the Augustus Long Hospital.
