ASCO lands major contract wins in Trinidad

ASCO has been the leading supply base and logistics provider in Trinidad for close to twenty years.

In 2019 we strengthened our platform for sustainable regional growth by securing two significant new contracts. The first is a long-term contract to support Shell's Drilling and Production activity, encompassing fully integrated supply base, logistics and materials management services.

In addition, we have secured a contract to provide full logistics support to a leading oil and gas exploration and production company for a campaign in Suriname, this contract will be supported from our facilities in Chaguaramas.

These two new scopes of work are in parallel to our existing Drilling and Production support contract with BHP Billiton.

Runar Hatlevedt, International Managing Director at ASCO, commented:

"We are very proud to have the opportunity to work with three of the largest international Operators in the northeastern coast of South America. As we continue to grow our business globally forming strong partnerships, across multiple international locations, with companies of this stature is core to our long-term strategy.

"The local team, led by Neil Bujun, have done an excellent job in securing this business and through ASCO's customer centric focus will ensure we deliver a world-class, safe and efficient service to all of our clients including Shell and BHP."
