Bourbon has been awarded a fully integrated logistics package contract by Shell comprising international freight forwarding, integrated logistics services and platform supply vessel (PSV) services to support two deepwater offshore exploration campaigns in Namibia and Sao Tomé.

The project’s scope covers the international shipment and clearance of Shell and its subcontractors’ equipment from Houston to Walvis Bay; the management of the logistics base and associated services (handling & lifting, material management, storage and warehousing, waste management, tank cleaning); and the provision of three PSVs (two PX105 & one P105) dedicated to the project.

Bourbon Logistics will be in charge of the whole logistics operations’ planning and conduct under its own Safety Management System, supported by its latest digital data management system 'Bourbon Logistics Suite', which allows the planning, execution and monitoring of the whole logistics supply chain from end to end.

The precise timing of the drilling is to be announced and each well is expected to last for 60 days.

Nicolas Chateau, Managing Director of Bourbon Logistics, commented: “We are more than proud to accompany Shell once again in these new exploration campaigns, which testifies to a common trust and confidence. Bourbon Logistics will strive to ensure the timely delivery of the entire supply chain while guaranteeing our client the highest safety standards. The implementation of our Bourbon Logistics service confirms the group's strategy to offer our clients increasingly comprehensive services and adapt to their constantly changing needs.”
