CHOUEST TO BUILD AND OPERATE ICEBREAKER FOR SHELL[/LEFT]
[/B] [/SIZE][/FONT][LEFT] [FONT=Book Antiqua][SIZE=3]Shell has contracted with Edison Chouest Offshore for the services of a 368-foot anchor handler/ice management vessel for Arctic service, beginning in 2012. This complies with the oil giant’s commitment to replace a foreign-flag vessel brought in before it became necessary for anchor handlers to be Jones Act vessels, although the project for which it was required has since moved several years to the right. I expect that they will find work for this expensive new boat somehow. [I]May 19, 2009.[/I][/SIZE][/FONT][/LEFT]
