Crowley Marine Services will not be providing oil spill prevention and response services in Valdez and Prince William Sound when its contract expires June 30, 2018 as it has lost its bit for the contract extension.

“We bid this contract very aggressively and are extremely disappointed that we were not selected to retain this business,” said Tom Crowley, company chairman and CEO.

“We have been assured that this outcome is the result of a very competitive landscape and is not a reflection of Crowley’s qualifications or record. We will continue to work constructively with Alyeska through the duration of our contract.”

Crowley said that the participants in the bidding process are restricted from disclosing details, adding that Alyeska may be able to provide more information when the new contract is finalized.

Rocky Smith, Crowley’s senior vice president and general manager for petroleum distribution and marine services, said that the company will work over the next couple of years to find opportunities to redeploy the company’s Valdez personnel and marine assets in new endeavors.

Crowley has been under contract with Alyeska since the inception of SERVS in 1990 and there are currently 17 vessels, 230 trained mariners and 17 shore side administrative personnel working under the contract.
