Item 8.01 Other Events
On September 3, 2008, the Company announced that, based on first reports from the field, it has experienced no damage to any of its vessels as a result of Hurricane Gustav, including those currently under construction in various Gulf of Mexico shipyards. The Companys new generation offshore supply vessel fleet continues to operate at pre-storm levels of 100% utilization. The Company remains in position to assist its GoM customers as they begin to assess storm damage and commence their recovery and repair efforts.
Preliminary assessments indicate that no damage has occurred to the Companys corporate headquarters in Covington, LA. The Company has not been able to assess conditions at its HOS Port facility located in Port Fourchon; however, preliminary reports are that the Port Fourchon area has sustained minor damage and the port authority will begin minimal operations in the next couple of days.
A copy of the press release is attached.
