International energy logistics provider Peterson has secured a long-term logistics contract with oil and gas operator TAQA. The 5-year contract is for integrated supply base and logistics operations supporting TAQA’s offshore assets in the UK North Sea – Harding, Tern, Eider, North Cormorant and Cormorant Alpha.
The contract scope includes the provision of quayside services, warehouse management, cargo carrying units, transport, fuel and marine services and includes an option for two additional, 1-year extensions.
Peterson will be responsible for managing 55,000 deck tonnes and supplying 50,000 tonnes of fuel annually and will support TAQA from quayside and warehouse facilities in Aberdeen and Kintore.
Chris Coull, Regional Director Peterson says, “This long-term contract enables us to deliver sustainable cost saving concepts and systems, whilst ensuring a focus on safe and efficient operations. Peterson is an industry leader in vessel pooling and marine sharing and we look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience in this area with TAQA. Peterson will work closely with TAQA to understand their needs and bring new ways of working supported by our proprietary suite of multi-user digital applications including our industry leading cargo management system eCargo and real time inventory and asset tracking through VOR.”
Peterson is working closely with customers to drive efficiencies and generate maximum value across their logistics operations. Last month the company was recognised for its unparalleled record in collaborative vessel sharing arrangements at the SPE Offshore Achievement Awards, winning the award for collaboration.
