Jackson Offshore to Construct Two PSVs for BP

Lee Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Jackson Offshore Operators, announced today that the company has entered into a multi-year agreement worth over $100 million dollars with BP America to build two Jones Act deepwater PSVs (platform supply vessels).

The M/V SQUALL and the M/V LIGHTNING will be 252-feet long by 60-feet wide vessels equipped with a complete Rolls-Royce system package including Azipull propulsion thrusters, tunnel thrusters, a low voltage front end diesel electric system, an Acon automation and an Icon Dynamic Positioning (DP-2) system. The PSVs should be ready for service in 2015.

“This contract represents long term employment for many mariners and their families. This is yet another great example of BP’s commitment to America and the Gulf of Mexico,” said Lee Jackson. “We have had a good working relationship with BP for a number of years and are excited to see our relationship grow with the signing of this agreement.”

Jackson Offshore Operators is a minority owned business enterprise that provides marine services to the offshore oil and gas industry.
