Ramps secures cross border logistics project for Suriname well
Ramps Logistics has secured a fully integrated contract with PETRONAS Suriname E&P B.V. (PSEPBV), a subsidiary of Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS).
The contract is for its upcoming drilling campaign for Sloanea-1 well, in Block 52, Suriname, covering logistics and shorebase operations across Trinidad and Suriname.
On the heels of Guyana’s exploration and production success and Apache’s recent discoveries in Block 58, Suriname’s offshore acreage promises major opportunities.
Drilling is expected to commence in Q3/Q4, 2020.
Kevin Julen, Ramps Logistics’ Suriname Country Manager said: “We are excited to work on this project with PSEPBV, an affiliate of PETRONAS in Suriname for its Sloanea-1 well drilling campaign.”
PETRONAS is the custodian of Malaysia’s oil and gas resources and a Fortune Global 500 energy company with presence in over 50 countries.
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.
Ramps Logistics will supply shorebase 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 3rd party services including fuelling, cargo carrying unit (CCU)’s and waste disposal in both Trinidad and Suriname.
Since 2015, the company 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.
Founded in 1985, Ramps Logistics has offices in Trinidad, Guyana, Suriname, Mexico, Miami and Houston with a total staff count exceeding 500 persons.
