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.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
