We are using a construction site in Barro do Dande to make pipelines for our offshore oilfield project. This particular site is called a Spoolbase, there the sequence is:

(1) Pipes called "joints" of 12 or 24m long are imported at the jetty
(2) The pipes are welded together to form 1500m long "stalks"
(3) the welded joints are coated
(4) the stalks are spooled onto a pipe lay barge (ship) which goes out to sea to lay the stalks on the seabed
