The Company:
Harvey Gulf International Marine, LLC specializes in towing drilling rigs and providing Offshore Supply and Multi-Purpose Support Vessels for deepwater water operations in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Until the late 1990’s, Harvey Gulf maintained and operated a fleet of both offshore, and inland towing vessels that towed, among other things, jack-up and semi-submersible drilling rigs, bulk cargo barges, and large structures and facilities laden on barges. Harvey Gulf also regularly towed liquefied natural gas (propane) filled barges from Louisiana to ports in the Caribbean, U.S. East Coast and U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Eventually, Harvey Gulf transitioned from a full-service towing operator to one specializing in offshore towing, with a focus on towing large jack-up and semi-submersible rigs in the deepwater and ultra-deepwater of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Case:
Recently, Harvey Gulf International Marine became the first U.S. vessel operator to contract for construction of vessels capable of operating exclusively on natural gas. In addition to being powered by cleaner burning natural gas, the vessels will achieve “ENVIRO+, Green Passport” Certification by the ABS. The requirements for this certification include that the vessels be continuously manned with a certified Environmental Officer, be completely constructed with certified environmentally friendly materials, and have advanced alarms for fuel tanks and containment systems. Along with Harvey Gulf’s other vessels under construction, they will be the first OSV’s to achieve this certification, making them the most environmentally friendly OSV’s in Gulf of Mexico. These vessels will meet the highest emissions standards that exist today and even higher standards that haven’t been created yet. In addition to its environmental leadership on the water, Harvey Gulf is also building the very first LNG Bunkering Facility in America. The firm is in the midst of a more than $500 million capital improvement and boatbuilding plan, aiming to achieve superior performance through designing and equipping its vessels to meet their customers’ current and anticipated needs for their deepwater operations. Harvey Gulf also designs and equips some of its offshore supply vessels for dual operation as dive/construction and mooring line support vessels, affording greater flexibility to its customers. Harvey Gulf operates the safest vessels through dedication of resources and gives top priority to safety. This requires continuous training of all employees, development and improvement of safety management systems, and maintaining and equipping vessels with the most modern safety features. All Harvey Gulf vessels are ABS classed and USCG certified. All Offshore Supply and Multipurpose Support Vessels are ISM, SOLAS and DP2 certified.

The Fleet:   
Today, Harvey Gulf’s fleet represents a state of the art collection of offshore support vessels ranging from 175 to 340 feet encompassing supply vessels, fast supply vessels and construction vessels powered by the latest technology available with industry leading cargo handling capabilities. Harvey Gulf’s focus on no harm to the environment is further exemplified by the 6 dual fueled LNG powered offshore supply vessels under construction as well as the, first of its kind, LNG fueling facility in Port Fourchon, LA.
