World Oil Staff April 17, 2023

(WO) — Bourbon Marine & Logistics announced a partnership with the Guyanese company Tethys Marine & Logistics, which becomes a 51% shareholder of the Bourbon Guyana Joint Venture. With 75% Guyanese Directors, Bourbon Guyana thus becomes the first indigenous Offshore Support Vessels operator, fully compliant with the most recent local content regulations.

With a fleet of 6 vessels (Large PSV, AHTS & Tugs) and the full range of marine services, Bourbon Guyana has operated in the country since 2019 and has since then successfully supported ExxonMobil Guyana and Saipem Guyana for the development of Stabroek field, promoting local employment with more than 70 Guyanese seafarers onboard its vessels.

Rodolphe Bouchet, CEO of Bourbon Marine & Logistics, said, “The partnership with Tethys Marine & Logistics represents a tremendous opportunity to strengthen our current position in Guyana. Through this operation, Bourbon becomes a "Guyanese" company in country with a local majority shareholder.”
