JANUARY 15, 2019 — Jackson Offshore Operators (JOO), New Orleans, reports that it has successfully secured firm, non-cancelable, long-term contract extensions for at least two of its fleet of deepwater Offshore Supply Vessels (OSV) including the Lightning and Squall.
This follows a 2018 long-term contract extension that included the OSVs Breeze and Thunder as well as Fast Supply Vessels (FSV) Cajun II and Cajun IV. Additionally, in November of 2018, the newly acquired OSV Blizzard commenced a long-term charter through 2021.
As a result, the entire JOO fleet now has contract coverage through 2020 and the entire OSV fleet extending through 2021 with four of the five OSVs extending through 2023.
“We are excited that our clients have again chosen JOO as a trusted partner for many more years to come,” said Lee Jackson, Chairman and CEO. “These extensions demonstrate our clients’ satisfaction with our outstanding service and are a testament to the hard work and dedication of every employee in the JOO family.”
Founded in 2011, Jackson Offshore Operators, LLC operates a fleet of Fast Supply Crew Vessels (FSCVs) and Offshore Supply Vessels (OSVs) in support of deepwater exploration and production for super major oil and gas clients.
