Report: OSV Connor Bordelon hits platform, causes fire

Bordelon Marine’s DP2 offshore supply vessel (OSV) Connor Bordelon has reportedly allided with a natural gas platform, located south of Port Fourchon jetties.

Port Fourchon is Louisiana’s southernmost port, located on the southern tip of Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, on the Gulf of Mexico.

According to gCaptain, a maritime and offshore website, the incident occurred this morning at 5 am local time.

The vessel has reportedly returned to the Port of Fourchon where a damage assessment will be made.

A spokesperson for U.S. Coast Guard, Petty Officer Jonathan Lally, was quoted as saying that as a result of the incident “the vessel was taking on water and hydrocarbons were burning on the surface of the water next to the fixed platform”. 

At the time of the incident, there were 20 personnel on board the vessel, but no injuries were reported.

Offshore Energy Today contacted the owner of the vessel, Bordelon Marine, inquiring about the details of the incident, but we have not received a reply thus far.
