New Superior Energy Services Liftboat to be Christened

New Iberia, La., (Feb. 20, 2008) — Superior Energy Services' Marine Services Division Christened its new 175-foot class liftboat, the Superior Liberty, on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at Marine Industrial Fabrication located at the Port of Iberia in New Iberia, La.

Mrs. Charlie M. Hardy performed the Christening. Guests from the industry, media and local government toured the vessel, and lunch was served onboard.

The Superior Liberty has modern features, technology and design unique to its class including a 100-ton, 100-ft boom crane more commonly seen on larger vessels and a larger working deck and deckload. In addition, the vessel's accommodations were designed and built with maximum comfort and efficiency for customer representatives.
