Connecting the dots in the supply chain

Our logistics operations are the physical handling of materials within the supply chain. We drive efficiency and eliminate the risk associated with managing, controlling and transporting oil and gas materials and equipment across the globe.

Supply Base

Highly efficient logistics hubs

Our supply bases are the hubs through which our customer materials flow. Since the opening of our wholly owned Peterhead supply base in 1974, we have progressed to become the world's leading operator of multi-user oil and gas supply bases.

We have an unrivalled network of strategically located facilities offering a fully integrated range of services carried out with safety, efficiency, reliability and transparency as our guiding principles. We have utilised our expertise in using data and technology to drive efficiency as we work to deliver the most efficiency supply bases in the industry.

We are continually investing in improving the efficiency of our supply bases, leveraging new best practice, Lean6Sigma process improvement tools and implementing new technology. These improvements will see us stay at the leading edge of oil and gas supply base operations.
