High Shipping Costs Are Here to Stay, Says Bloomberg
By Henry Ren (Bloomberg) Stubbornly high shipping expenses for businesses are getting sealed into contracts for the next 12 months, forcing companies to pass the extra costs on to consumers....
Yesterday afternoon, the semi-submersible drilling rig ENSCO 8502, under tow by the KURT J CROSBY and the SIGNET WAR HORSE, arrived at Mustang Island Block 740, near the Corpus Christi sea buoy. The tow was escorted by the M/V CROSBY COURAGE and Adriatic Marine’s ARABIAN.
Crosby notes in an emailed statement to gCaptain:
“The two Crosby tugs successfully completed the tow, as requested, after originally encountering heavy weather on February 20 – 21, including seas up to 16 feet and winds up to 40 – 50 mph, which slowed progress. The tugs, however, maintained full control of the ENSCO rig.”
