Red Lion Wharf JLP01_01_063_61

Red Lion Wharf, Northfleet, Gravesend, Gravesham, Kent. Laing workers preparing the dry dock at Red Lion Wharf, Gravesend, for the first phase in the construction of the cooling water intake caisson for Coryton Oil Refinery.
The first stages in the construction of the cooling water intake caisson were carried out at the Red Lion Wharf dry dock, Gravesend. Before work could begin, the site had to be prepared. A thick layer of mud which had been deposited by the tide was removed and the entrance to the dock was closed. On 30th November 1951, when the first construction phase was complete, the caisson was towed across the Thames to Tilbury Docks. Construction of the caisson was completed at Tilbury, and it was finally transported to Coryton in March 1952

Cranes JLP01_08_096485

Graythorp, Hartlepool. A view of the construction of an oil platform at Graythorp, showing cranes around the emerging structure.
In the early 1970s Laing Pipelines Offshore constructed the Graythorp fabrication yard and dry dock on the site of the old William Gray Shipyard. The company created a dry dock which was used for the construction of fixed platform North Sea drilling rigs for the BP North Sea Oil Project. By 1972, one thousand men were working on site to build a tubular structure which would support a drilling rig in the North Sea destined for the Forties Oilfield. The cranes on site at Graythorp included two 509 Revolver cranes, capable of lifting 813 tonnes, and six Manitowoc cranes imported from America
