Home News Ramps Logistics get logistics contract for Tullow’s Suriname operation
Ramps Logistics has announced that it was awarded a fully integrated contract with Tullow Oil plc for its upcoming drilling campaign in Block 47, Suriname.
The contract was awarded in September and the scope, as in previous campaigns, covers logistics and shore base operations across Trinidad and Suriname. Tullow, well known for the Jubilee field in Ghana, is hoping to achieve similar successes in its Suriname and Guyana acreage.
In September 2010, Tullow signed a Production Sharing Contract (PSC) with Staatsolie for Block 47, a 2369 km2 deepwater exploration licence. Drilling of the Goliathberg-Voltzberg North well is expected to commence in Q1, 2021, barring any COVID-19 setbacks.
This well will target a Cretaceous turbidite prospect in 1900m of water. Tullow has already contracted Stena Drilling to supply the drillship.
Ramps is expected to support these drilling operations through shore base provision and management in both Suriname and Trinidad, inclusive of warehousing, pipe yards, berthing, lifting equipment and labour. Additionally, Ramps will provide marine agency, customs clearance, immigration and personnel logistics and a host of 3rd party services through local service providers, which include CCUS, fuel, sling provision, taxis and apartments.
Ramps has previously provided the full complement of cross-border logistics services to Tullow, in support of their exploration drilling in Suriname (Araku-1, Block 54, 2017) and Guyana (Joe-1 and Jethro-1, Orinduik Block, 2019).
Recent offshore activity has cemented Suriname and Guyana as two of the latest frontier exploration regions globally to have such significant proven oil and gas in their deepwater.
