LNG-powered OSV starts operating for Shell in Gulf of Mexico

LNG-powered OSV starts operating for Shell in Gulf of Mexico

Shell marked delivery of a special Offshore Supply Vessel for its deep water operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

The vessel, chartered from Harvey Gulf International Marine, is the first of its kind in the region to run on both liquefied natural gas and diesel. Two more LNG-fuelled vessels are expected to follow.

The ‘Harvey Energy’ is 92 metres long and operates on three dual-fuel Wärtsilä engines. It will run on 99% LNG fuel and will be able to operate for around seven days before refuelling. It will load from Harvey Gulf’s new LNG bunkering facility at their terminal at Port Fourchon. From there the ‘Harvey Energy’ will go to Shell’s platforms, such as the new Olympus production platform, bringing equipment and drilling fluids.
