GALLIANO, La. (AP) - Edison Chouest (SHWEST) Offshore has acquired the remaining assets from the fleet of Bee Mar LLC, a marine transport company based in Broussard.
The Times-Picayune reports the acquisition consists of three 270 Class and four 300 Class platform supply vessels. The vessels are currently on order from the Bollinger Marine Fabricators in Amelia.
The companies involved declined to provide the purchase price.
Officials from Galliano-based Edison Chouest and Bee Mar were not immediately available for comment.
The news comes more than a year after Harvey Gulf International Marine finalized the purchase of nine offshore supply vessels from Bee Mar for $243 million. That deal boosted Harvey Gulf's fleet of deepwater offshore supply vessels to 26, and expanded its areas of operations to Alaska, Mozambique and Israel.
