Joides Resolution in port again
The rig was at Caracasbay, Jetty no. 2, from mid-April until the end of May 2012, and later shifted to Mathey Wharf, Downtown - Otrobanda, for ex-pipe bunkers. During her stay, she offlanded earth core samples, which were shipped by reefer containers for storage & analysis to Texas. Also, she performed regular maintenance and crew changes, in preparation for her next assignments.
