Jackson Offshore Operators announces OSV contract extensions

(NEW ORLEANS) — Jackson Offshore Operators LLC (JOO) announced that it has secured firm, non-cancellable, long-term contract extensions for at least two of its fleet of deepwater offshore supply vessels (OSVs) including Lightning and Squall.

This announcement follows a 2018 long-term contract extension which included the OSVs Breeze and Thunder as well as fast supply vessels (FSVs) Cajun II and Cajun IV. Additionally, in November 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.”
