Global integrated logistics and materials management company, ASCO, strengthens its presence in Trinidad & Tobago with the award of an integrated logistics management contract from Total E&P Suriname BV (Total).
The contract, which came into effect on 31 December 2020, will be delivered from ASCO Trinidad’s Chaguaramas bases.
The work scope, which will support Total’s ongoing offshore exploration activity as operator of Block 58 offshore Suriname, sees ASCO Trinidad provide onshore logistics, pipe yard, plant and procurement services, as well as specialist lifting and training activity.
ASCO Trinidad’s Operations Manager, John Clouston comments: “Building on ASCO’s 20-year track record in the region, our reputation is built on ASCO's three obsessions, safety excellence, service excellence and sustainability. We are looking forward to supporting Total with their operations and providing them efficient end-to-end, integrated logistics and materials management services.
“The contract commenced at the end of a year which saw an unprecedented rise in our activity levels, as well as significant investment in additional personnel and our facilities – particularly the construction and development of facilities which support our clients’ drilling campaigns.”
In addition, deck tonnes processed across ASCO’s Trinidadian facilities have quadrupled during the past year whilst vessel turnarounds have nearly tripled, with the company’s digital integrated logistics management system iLMS deployed to provide real-time material visibility, control and process efficiency.
