In energy transition efforts, Harvey Gulf operates the first carbon-neutral PSV worldwide and orders 25 electric lightning trucks. Therefore, the company moves one step closer to becoming the world’s first ESG certified oil and gas vessel operator.

Harvey Gulf owns five 310’ platform supply vessels (PSV) all of which can operate carbon neutral using RLNG.

Renewable Liquefied Natural Gas (RLNG) is produced from organic waste. Its use enables clients who charter the company’s RLNG vessels to obtain a CO2-neutral certificate for their operations.

CEO Shane Guidry said: “We always knew the day would come when investors and customers would
demand low, or in this case, carbon-neutral, zero-emission Platform Supply Vessels. Harvey owns the only ones in the world operating today and the only ones that will ever be operating in the U.S., unless
our competitors want to build new dual-fuel LNG vessels, or tri-fueled like these at a cost of $113,000,000.00 per vessel.

So, for those oil companies that really want to do all they can to reduce emissions while drilling for oil, we have boats that they can now charter to deliver the drilling rigs’ needs while burning CO2-neutral fuel.”

The company says that their LNG fueling terminal is the only one in America.

Through this, the company is able to continue to support its clients in meeting their environmental commitments.
