Harvey Marine Puts Third LNG-Powered Vessel In Service
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans-based Harvey Gulf International Marine has delivered its third liquefied natural gas-powered offshore supply vessel to Shell Offshore Inc.
The New Orleans Advocate reports it will load from Harvey Gulf's new LNG bunkering facility in Port Fourchon, where it will support Shell's platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, transporting supplies, equipment and drilling fluids.
The Harvey Liberty will join sister ships, the Harvey Energy and Harvey Power, in supporting Shell's operations.
The LNG-powered vessels provide owners an alternative fuel to meet sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions regulations.
