Energy logistics provider Peterson has been awarded a five-year contract, with options for further extension, with BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT) to provide integrated logistics services for its operations in the region.
The scope of work includes integrated supply base operations management, logistics control planning and pipe yard operations, Peterson said on Thursday.
The company noted that this contract will expand its footprint in the Caribbean region and builds on the company’s existing long-term relationship with BP, which includes supporting some of its UKCS North Sea operations from Peterson’s Shetland supply base.
Peterson will implement its full suite of eLogistics applications and, together with BPTT, will develop and establish collaboration initiatives between BPTT and other operators in the region.
Commenting on the award Erwin Kooij, CEO, Peterson Offshore Group, said: “This is a significant award for our business and marks a major development in our growth and long term commitment to this region.”
Kooij also added: “We will work in close partnership with BP to deliver an innovative service that drives efficiency and facilitates resource sharing, whilst ensuring a continued focus on safe execution and delivery.”
Maarten Spiljard, Regional Manager Americas, added: “We are committed to creating local employment opportunities in the areas where we work. This is reinforced by our contract, which will focus on the recruitment and development of the local workforce whose skills and experience are key to ensuring successful delivery.”
