Peterson gets long-term logistics contract from Repsol Sinopec
- Business & Finance
International energy logistics provider Peterson has been awarded a new long-term integrated logistics contract to service Repsol Sinopec Resources UK.
Peterson said on Monday that the contract sees Repsol Sinopec transitioning its marine and quayside operations to Aberdeen from Peterhead with integrated supply base, logistics, transport and warehousing operations being provided from Peterson’s Aberdeen Operations Center.
According to Peterson, this latest contract has led to significant increases in tonnage volumes across its Aberdeen quayside operations with the company handling record annual tonnage; this includes 550,000 tonnes across Aberdeen harbor alone in 2018.
The company has continued to invest in, and extend, its Aberdeen harbor footprint and this together with increased work has led to the company adding over 30 people to the team, increasing its transport fleet and taking on operation of additional warehousing.
Chris Coull, Regional Director at Peterson, commented, “Adding Repsol Sinopec to our Aberdeen customer base is another significant award for our North Sea business and creates additional opportunities from which we can further develop our ambition and strategy to continue to extend sharing and pooling models across the North Sea.”
