Gulf Coast Shipyard Group delivered Harvey Power, the second LNG vessel that enters full service for Shell Upstream America’s deepwater operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
Harvey Power is the second of six LNG OSVs being built for Harvey Gulf International Marine, and like her sister ship Harvey Energy, Harvey Power is capable of operating on LNG or diesel fuel, GCSG informed in a statement.
