M/V Juanita Candies was successfully delivered to Otto Candies
, Inc. The vessel immediately departed Mobile en route to Fouchon, La. to go on long-term charter to Conoco in support of their deepwater drilling program.
Both Agnes Candies and Juanita Candies have gone to work on high profile, deep water drilling projects, which is exactly the kind of work they were designed to perform.
Feedback from the Candies operations people confirm the vessels are performing their mission well. Their customers comment positively in regard to the vessels' fast cargo pumping rates, station keeping ability and stability in high seas.
The Agnes Candies crew reports the first time the vessel was called upon to unload in 10-12 ft. seas in the d/p mode, they experienced heavy rolling in the beam sea. The flume tank was filled to the required level, the roll smoothed out and Agnes Candies proceeded to unload in conditions other vessels could not.
