New Orleans-based Harvey Gulf International Marine has taken delivery of its fifth LNG-powered offshore supply vessel.

The latest addition to Harvey Gulf’s fleet, the Harvey America, was built at the Gulf Coast Shipyard Group in Mississippi, like the previous four LNG-fueled OSVs.

The vessel has an LNG tank capacity of 78,000 gallons of LNG and is being powered and propelled by Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines.

The vessel is “ENVIRO+, Green Passport” certified by ABS, making it and her sister ships, the “most environmentally friendly” OSV’s in the Gulf of Mexico, according to Harvey Gulf.

Harvey Gulf did not provide additional information such as the charterer of the newly delivered vessel. The first three LNG OSVs have been chartered to Shell while the fourth is on a charter to an unnamed oil and gas company.

Worth mentioning, Harvey Gulf is currently constructing the first LNG marine fueling facility in the United States to be located at its vessel facility in Port Fourchon.

The fueling facility will be a valuable addition to the growing US LNG supply infrastructure, supporting operations of the oil and gas industry’s offshore support vessel fleet operating on LNG.
