Hornbeck-Leevac Expands OSV Fleet Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary Hornbeck-Leevac Marine Services, Inc., has begun a new vessel construction program to significantly increase the size of its seven-vessel, state-of-the-art offshore supply vessel (OSV) fleet.

A contract has been signed with Leevac Shipyards to immediately begin construction of two ultra deepwater vessels with four to follow. The first vessel is expected to be delivered in February 2001. All vessels are expected to be completed within the next 20 months.

Hornbeck Offshore Services currently operates a fleet of seven recently constructed, high capacity OSVs. The new ultra deepwater vessels will incorporate the highly successful design features and specifications of the current deepwater fleet. These state-of-the-art vessels were specially designed to maximize available deck space and supply capacities while minimizing operating costs through increased operating efficiencies.

Hornbeck has employed the latest available reliable technology throughout its deepwater fleet. Their OSVs are capable of transporting 3 to 6 times the amount of product and materials offshore as conventional OSVs. Service markets include oilfield production and exploration support, geophysical surveying, well stimulation and heavy equipment and container transportation. Their diversified new generation fleet will provide maximum customer support from the continental shelf to the ultra deepwater.
