Toll’s $100M Chevron deal to create 50 jobs

Australia’s provider of transport and logistics to the resources sector, Toll Group, has been awarded a contract by Chevron Australia Pty Ltd (Chevron) for the supply of marine logistics services that is expected to generate revenues of approximately $100 million over five years.

The work involves logistics support for Chevron’s Western Australia operations, including the company’s LNG asset on Barrow Island, 60 kilometres northwest of Western Australia.

Toll Group Managing Director Brian Kruger said 50 new jobs will be created under the contract including six management and support staff located in the Pilbara.

Toll designed, and is currently constructing, three state-of-the-art Landing Craft Tank (LCT) vessels to support Chevron’s supply chain when delivered. These larger-capacity vessels will be some of the safest and most efficient vessels of this type in the industry.

“Our innovative design includes two underdeck passages that reduce the amount of interaction between the crew and the cargo, making the vessels safer to load, sail and unload,” Kruger said.

“These vessels also have larger capacity due to their three-container stacking capabilities, and our innovative double-hulled design with automated gauges makes for safer, more environmentally-friendly vessels.”

In addition to the LCT contract, Toll has also been awarded a short-term contract for the provision of a vessel to provide additional support for the carriage of fuel to Barrow Island. This vessel will commence operating within the next month.
