JOO Emergency Response Information

Emergency Response and Disaster Recovery Information


All JOO vessels are currently operating as normal.





To The Entire Jackson Offshore Family,

Like many of us living in the New Orleans and Houma areas, many of you have also suffered due to Hurricane Ida.  We are assessing damage to the office as well as to homes and would appreciate any updates from any of you suffering any damages to your homes or other issues as a result of the hurricane.

The Houston based shorebase team all have reliable phone and internet and Matthew Rigdon is the best point of contact.  His e-mail is [email protected] and his mobile is 985-722-8765.

As far as we know from all of our clients, Galveston will be the shorebase of operations for until Fourchon can go back into service.  The duration of this is expected to be many weeks and likely months.  We are already putting in place contingencies to conduct crew changes to Galveston and are conducting a first crew change today in Galveston.  We expect to have limited disruption to crew changes.  Any questions on this, again Matthew Rigdon is the best point of contact until stable communications with the shorebase team in the New Orleans area are reestablished.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and we will persevere through this just as we have all of our prior challenges we have faced.


Lee Jackson
President & CEO
