Peterson, the leading international energy logistics provider, is celebrating after winning the prestigious ‘collaboration’ award at last night’s 30th Offshore Achievement Awards held in Aberdeen.
The company was recognised for its unparalleled track record in collaborative vessel sharing arrangements. Peterson is facilitator of Aberdeen Marine Logistics Alliance (AMLA) a vessel sharing initiative designed to maximise efficiency and reduce marine logistics costs through the sharing of vessels wherever possible. Established in 1995, this forward-thinking idea was eagerly received by the industry and members have enjoyed millions of financial savings and a reduction in thousands of tonnes of CO2 emissions since its launch.
Peterson was also commended for its involvement in the SNS Pool which it has managed for more than twenty years. The logistics concept involves nine operators outsourcing their combined marine and aviation requirements to Peterson to manage on their behalf. Based in Den Helder Peterson is able to supply offshore installations on the Dutch Continental Shelf.
Murdo MacIver, director, Peterson commented: “Peterson is honoured to have been presented this award at a time when working together has never been more vital in the oil and gas industry. We couldn’t do this without our customers who have the foresight and ambition to make a difference. This recognition is not just for Peterson, but for our customers too.
Collaboration and sharing should not be buzz words only used when the oil price is low. We have the experience and technology to facilitate sharing models. The industry has a responsibility to ensure that the sharing of resources across the supply chain becomes the new norm.
Peterson will continue to lead the way for collaborative working in the logistics market and we look forward to seeing further growth and results from AMLA and the SNS Pool in the future.”
