Seabulk’s Gulf, Florida operations spared by hurricanes
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Seabulk International Inc. said Wednesday its operations in the Gulf of Mexico and along the East and West coasts of Florida suffered “no material adverse impact” from Hurricane Ivan or the two storms (Hurricanes Frances and Charley) that preceded it in recent weeks.
Seabulk’s towing business sustained “minor damage” to two tugs in the port of Mobile and to its office facilities in Tampa, the company said.
Seabulk’s offshore business reported no damage to its vessels and expects activity in the Gulf increase in the aftermath of Ivan.
Seabulk’s Jones Act tanker business has no lost revenue days as a result of the three storms, the company said.
“Throughout this hurricane season, Seabulk tankers was able to maintain its customers’ supply lines without interruption,” Seabulk said.
Seabulk operates a diversified fleet of 150 vessels.
