For the first nine months of 2006, revenues and operating income increased 21% and 37%, respectively, compared with the 2005 first nine months. The results for both periods reflected continued strong petrochemical, black oil products and refined products volumes. Pricing continued to reflect higher rates on contract renewals and spot market pricing. The 2006 third quarter and first nine months results were impacted by a continued tight vessel personnel labor pool and Gulf Coast charter towboat market, principally due to the effects of 2005 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Diesel engine services revenues and operating income for the 2006 third quarter increased 102% and 154%, respectively, compared with the 2005 third quarter. For the first nine months of 2006, revenues and operating income increased 56% and 96%, respectively, compared with the 2005 first nine months. The record diesel engine services results reflected the accretive acquisition of Global Power Holding Company on June 7, 2006 and the acquisition of the assets of Marine Engine Specialists, Inc. on July 21, 2006, as well as continued strong marine, offshore oil service, power generation and railroad markets.
