NEWS environmental reviews, including public comment, and extensive consultation with state and local governments and tribal organizations before any lease sale proceeds. The program also includes a proposed sale in the Mid-Atlantic Planning Area off the coast line of Virginia in late 2011. Between the current presidential withdrawal and the annual congressional moratoria, the majority of the OCS around the lower 48 states is off limits to energy development, including all areas off Virginia. This sale would, therefore, only take place if the presidential withdrawal is modified and the congressional moratorium discontinued in the Mid-Atlantic Planning Area. This planning area excludes a 50-mile coastal buffer from leasing consideration as requested by the Commonwealth of Virginia, as well as a wedgeshaped No-Obstruction Zone to avoid conflicts with navigation activities in and out of the Chesapeake Bay. No lease sale would proceed without additional and more site-specific analysis of its environmental effects under the National Environmental Policy Act.

This 8,000 deadweight ton vessel will be equipped with two cranes, a helideck, a moon pool and accommodations for 100 people. The primary crane will have lifting capacity of up to 400 tons in up to 10,000 feet of water depth and the secondary crane will provide significant additional lifting capacity. This worldclass MPSV will be capable of operating globally. However, the company plans to deploy the vessel in its primary operating market, the deepwater and ultra-deepwater Gulf of Mexico (GoM). While this foreign-built vessel cannot qualify for Jones Act trade, the company still intends to U.S.-flag the vessel, which offers certain strategic benefits to the Company and its GoM customers. The new DP-3 vessel to be constructed will be included in the company's MPSV program, which cur- rently consists of two U.S.-flagged coastwise sulfur tankers that are being converted into 370-ft. new generation DP-2 MPSVs. Based on current internal estimates, the aggregate total project budget for these three vessels, before construction period interest, is now expected to be in the $250m to $270m range, depending on final vessel configurations. The company plans to fund the incremental cost of this DP-3 newbuild MPSV from current cash on-hand and projected free cash flow. Hornbeck Offshore also has an exclusive four-year option to construct two additional sister vessels based on the same DP-3 MPSV design at a U.S. shipyard of its choice. Horn Rejoins Peck & Hale Brian Horn joined Peck & Hale, L.L.C. as Maritime and Commercial Business Manager. Horn will be responsible for increasing market awareness of Breech Base Socket systems and Quick Release Lifting Hooks, in addition to other technical sales efforts. *Sale 224 is mandated by the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act of 2006. **Lease sale would only be held if the President chooses to modify the withdrawal and Congress discontinues the annual appropriations moratorium in the Mid-Atlantic.
