ASCO Bags Supply Base Deal for BP's Exploration Program Off South Australia
International oil and gas services company ASCO Group announced Tuesday that the firm has continued its success in the Australian oil and gas market by winning the contract to manage the supply base for BP’s upcoming exploration program in the Great Australian Bight.
Commencing in 2016, the exploration program includes four wells within its offshore permits located approximately 186 miles (300 kilometers) southwest of Ceduna, South Australia.
The 24/7 supply base at Flinders Port in Adelaide will be managed by ASCO in partnership with Flinders Logistics, a subsidiary of Flinders Port Holdings.
ASCO Australasia CEO, Matt Thomas, said ASCO was proud to have been awarded this significant contract by one of the world’s leading energy companies.
“The Great Australian Bight is a challenging new global frontier in oil and gas exploration and ASCO will bring its significant international experience to support BP’s operations,” Thomas said.
ASCO is the world’s leading oil and gas supply base operator across five continents. ASCO’s presence in Australia has increased significantly over the past year, with the opening of the Darwin Marine Supply Base, the acquisition of Bonnie Rock Transport and a major contract win to transport Barrow Island construction waste for Toxfree.
“ASCO’s selection to manage the base and all associated logistics is further recognition of our global capability and reinforces our strategic direction in Australasia,” Thomas said.
