Ramps Logistics, one of the region’s leading providers in shore base services, has successfully secured a fully integrated contract with PETRONAS Suriname E&P B.V. (PSEPBV), a subsidiary of Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS) for its upcoming drilling campaign for Sloanea-1 well, in Block 52, Suriname.
Guyana Standard understands that the contract covers logistics and shore base operations across Trinidad and Suriname. As for drilling, it was expected that this is expected to commence in the second half of the year. The drilling services will be provided primarily out of Trinidad, from which the supply vessels will move all pipe, casing, drilling fluid, cement, and other tools to the rig offshore Suriname.
Officials at Ramps noted that they will supply shore base in Trinidad and provide logistic services such as clearance and permits for all vessels, customs brokerage, immigration and other personnel logistics, as well as a range of third party services including fuelling, cargo carrying unit (CCU)’s and waste disposal in both Trinidad and Suriname.
Since 2015, Ramps has provided the full complement of cross-border logistics services to companies such as ExxonMobil and Tullow, in support of their exploration and development drilling in Guyana. Ramps has also managed similar cross-border projects for Tullow Oil and Kosmos Energy in Suriname during 2017 and 2018.
