Lasmo Elephant Field, AGIP Gas and Oil Company

Prior to implementing the Elephant Field project, detailed plans were drawn up by the Carl Ungewitter Trinidad Lake Asphalt GmbH & Co. KG. project team. Every inch of the 1300 km route from Ras Lanuf, the port of discharge, to the final destination in the Libyan desert was checked and analysed in advance to ensure that the transportation of the heavy load would run smoothly.

In addition to the weight of the load, which had been forwarded from Canada (over 80 t.), its dimensions – 20 m in length, 470 cm in diameter and a trailer clearance measurement of up to 670 cm – also played a major role in planning the overland transport route.
