Lockport, La., Bollinger Marine Fabricators, L.L.C., a Bollinger Shipyards, Inc. company, has delivered the M 6000, a 55,000 barrel (bbl) Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA’90) compliant tank barge, to Midstream Fuel Service, L.L.C., a wholly owned subsidiary of Martin Resource Management Corporation.  Contract terms and conditions were not disclosed.

The 55,000 bbl tank barge, M 6000, was built at Bollinger Marine Fabricators, L.L.C., in Amelia, La. and is a Bollinger design.  The M 6000 is a clean oil barge that is classed and certified ABS + A1 Oil Tank Barge, Manned Ocean Services. The barge measures 350 ft long, with a 70-ft beam and a depth of 25 ft.  The barge is built to meet the requirements of OPA’90, with ten cargo compartments and two separate pumping systems.  The barge is outfitted with the Bludworth Cook Marine ATB Flexible Connection System.

Ruben Martin, President of Martin Resource Management Corporation said, “The Bollinger family’s heritage of quality engineering and construction are on display in the barge M 6000 and tug La Force. The barge was constructed in Bollinger’s Amelia yard and the tug, La Force, was converted with a new Bludworth/Cook system and raised pilot house in Bollinger’s Texas City yard. When these two units came together at the completion of the project it was like the fit of custom made boots.  Bravo, Bollinger!”

On departure from the Bollinger Marine Fabricators facility, the M 6000 entered the marine transportation services for petroleum products in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
