Peterson to continue supporting Shell from Lowestoft base

Energy logistics provider Peterson has secured a contract extension with Shell to provide quayside, warehousing, and transport services from Peterson’s Lowestoft base in England.

Peterson has supported Shell from the east coast of England since 2015.

The new contract will see that support continue until at least January 2022, the logistics provider said on Monday.

Jason Hendry, Regional Director at Peterson, said of the award: “Over the past five years we have worked closely with Shell, collaborating with them to fully understand their long-term needs and support them accordingly”.

Improvements to the Lowestoft site are also due to be completed soon.

Namely, Peterson is installing a new fuel facility to deliver a facility with the capability and capacity to service any vessel that comes into the port.

John Shade, UK Fuel Manager, said of the facility: “This fuel facility provides operators from the oil and gas and offshore wind sectors with another reason to use Lowestoft as their port of choice”.
