BOURBON has announced that it has been selected by Shell to provide fully integrated logistics solutions to support its upcoming deepwater offshore exploration campaigns in Namibia and Sao Tomé. Last month, Shell had selected the Valaris DS-10 drillship to drill in PEL 39 offshore Namibia and Block 6 in Sao Tomé.
BOURBON’s package contract includes international freight forwarding, integrated logistics services and PSV (Platform Supply Vessel) services to support the drilling of both exploratory wells.
The scope of work notably includes the international shipment and clearance of Shell’s and its subcontractors’ equipment from Houston to Walvis Bay; the management of the logistics base and associated services; and the provision of three Platform Supply Vessels: two PX105 and one P105.
BOURBON will provide Integrated Logistics services through its local branch “Bourbon Logistics Namibia” with its strong and well-established local partner “Logistics Support Services” (LSS), the company explained in a statement this week.
