Nabors and Seacor Team Up in Offshore Support Vessel Market
SEACOR Holdings and Nabors Industries have entered into a letter of intent to form a new company to own and operate a fleet of twenty offshore support vessels currently owned by a Nabors affiliate.
A subsidiary of SEACOR will be the majority owner of the new company, Sea Mar Offshore LLC ("Sea Mar"), and will manage its 19 US flag and one foreign flag vessels. Nabors will be a minority owner of Sea Mar, which will qualify for US coastwise trade.
Early termination of the waiting period under the "Hart-Scott-Rodino" Anti-Trust Improvement Act of 1976 was granted on June 20, 2007. The transaction is subject to definitive documentation and expected to close on or before July 13, 2007.
