This isn't at all accurate.
Chouest will NOT operate any vessel for a loss, and that is the reason they'vee cold stacked new vessels. If they wanted, most ALL of their vessels could be working. But they refuse to operate them at the current market rates. That's the advantage of having most vessels paid for. Crew cost alone on most ECO vessels is anywhere from $6000-$7000 per day. They're not going to operate for less than that.
And with the exception of the Island Venture, there aren't any orange boats sitting in Fourchon off charter and crewed. None. If a vessel is in Fourchon, it is ON charter.
