Offshore staff

THE HAGUE, the NetherlandsShell’s new LNG-powered offshore supply vessel (OSV), chartered from specialist company Harvey Gulf International Marine, has hit the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The operator said Harvey Power is the second OSV in the region to run on both LNG and diesel, running on 99% LNG fuel. The first, Shell’s Harvey Energy, hit the GoM in March.

It will load from Harvey Gulf’s LNG bunkering facility, currently under construction at their terminal at Port Fourchon. From there it will go to Shell’s GoM platforms, such as the new Olympus production platform, bringing equipment and drilling fluids.

Both the Harvey Energy and Harvey Power vessels will meet the stringent requirements of the ABS ENVIRO+, Green Passport notation.
