Posted by Eric Haun

Harvey Gulf International Marine said it has accepted delivery of its fourth liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered offshore supply vessel (OSV). The M/V Harvey Freedom, built at Gulf Coast Shipyard Group in Gulfport, Miss. is 310' x 64' x 24.5', U.S. Flagged Subchapter I and L, SOLAS compliant and capable of carrying 253,000 USG of fuel oil, 18,000 bbls of liquid mud, 1,600 bbls of methanol, 10,250ft3 of dry cement and 78,000 USG of LNG fuel.

In addition to being powered by cleaner burning natural gas, the vessel is "ENVIRO+, Green Passport" certified by ABS, making her and her sister ships the most environmental friendly OSVs in the Gulf of Mexico, Harvey Gulf said.
The Harvey Freedom will be based out of Port Fourchon, La. and will immediately begin a five-year charter with a major oil and gas company.
Shane Guidry, chairman and CEO of Harvey Gulf, commented, "The delivery of the Harvey Freedom and commencement of her five-year charter shows Harvey Gulf's continued commitment to the environment and the success of LNG power in our industry."
