Shell Offshore Inc. has delivered a third LNG-powered Offshore Supply Vessel (OSV) in Port Fourchon, Louisiana, US. The Harvey Liberty, chartered from specialist company Harvey Gulf International Marine, will join her sister ships, the Harvey Energy and Harvey Power, and support Shell’s deep-water operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

“This is an important milestone for Shell and Harvey Gulf,” said Tahir Faruqui, Shell’s General Manager LNG North America. “The Harvey Liberty highlights our efforts to grow LNG as a fuel in the transport sector, and is a welcome addition to our portfolio.”

Harvey Gulf International Marine’s CEO and Chairman, Shane Guidry, added: “Harvey Gulf is excited to share these historical maritime events with Shell. This represents another significant step in the path for Harvey Gulf to establish itself as a leader in utilising LNG as a marine fuel.”

The Harvey Liberty runs on 99% LNG fuel and can operate for up to 15 days before needing to refuel. The vessel is 302 ft long and operates on three dual-fuel Wärtsilä engines.
