Fossil energy – Shell
Jackson Offshore Operators (JOO) is pleased to announce that it is growing its Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) fleet with the acquisition of the M/V STORM.
Once it has completed regulatory requirements, the M/V STORM will commence a five-year contract with Shell in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
Built in 2015, the M/V STORM is an MMC-879 design PSV, DP Class 2, and diesel electric propulsion. It is 260 feet in length with a carrying capacity of 4,200 T DWT.
The vessel is expected to go into service immediately upon completion of a special dry-docking survey.
“We’re thrilled to add the M/V STORM to our fleet of platform supply vessels. We chose the name STORM for the new vessel because it represents our history in that, that name gave us our start,” said Lee Jackson, President and CEO.
“As our fleet grows, so does our ability to serve our customers with safe, reliable and efficient vessel services. This acquisition/contract is a direct result of the hard work that our entire team commits itself to each and every day.”
As one of the most trusted full-service offshore transportation companies providing marine services in the Gulf, JOO demands the best quality of services and strives to surpass client expectations. “Shell continues to make investments in lower carbon deep water oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico and the communities that service this vital industry, especially in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida,” said Shona Mathie, Shell General Manager, Supply Chain, Deep Water Americas.
“It is exciting and fitting to see Jackson Offshore launch the M/V STORM to highlight this continued investment in this industry and region, and we are happy to see her come in to service our fleet.”
