Building Four Offshore
Vessels For Briley
Briley Offshore, Inc., 1001 Pin- hook Road, Lafayette, La., has applied for a Title XI guarantee to aid in financing the construc- tion of four offshore towing/ supply vessels.
The applicant, a new corpora- tion formed to operate the four vessels, indicated that they will be employed initially in the Gulf of Mexico, but ultimately may be used in other offshore areas, in- cluding the Gulf of Alaska, and
East and West Coasts of the
United States. They are designed to service the offshore oil and related industries, and are capa- ble of transporting fuel, water, frozen foods, construction equip- ment and other materials.
J. Ray McDermott & Company,
Morgan City, La., was awarded the contract to construct the four vessels. Each of the 192-foot vessels—capable of operating year-round in most waters of the world—will be powered by two diesel engines with a combined horsepower of 2,600 to 3,000.
The Title XI guarantee would be for approximately $9,677,000, which represents 87% percent of the total cost of the four vessels. 14 Maritime Reporter/Engineering News
