Bourbon awarded new integrated logistics contract by Total, Namibia
Bourbon Marine & Logistics announced that it has been awarded by Total E&P Namibia, an integrated logistics contract to support a deep offshore exploration campaign in South Namibia in 2020.
The project scope covers provision of Logistics base, freight forwarding, custom clearance, material storage & warehousing, handling and lifting, marine port visits support along with tank cleanings and logistics operations planning and conduct (material & personnel). This new contract follows the success of our initial assignment in integrated logistics in Bulgaria, confirming our expertise in the field.
BOURBON will provide Integrated Logistics services through a local branch "Bourbon Logistics Namibia" with a strong and well-established local partner: "Logistics Support Services" (LSS). Working with a solid local partner is a key aspect of Bourbon local content strategy.
Namibia seems to represent great growth opportunities for many oil companies who will closely watch the results of the exploration well in south Namibia. The project started early August 2019 and should last approximately one year with drilling activities expected in the first semester 2020. The operations will be managed from Lüderitz, a port in the south of Namibia, representing a particularly interesting challenge for Bourbon teams.

“We are extremely pleased to support Total E&P in this new exploration project, and will ensure efficient cost effective integrated logistics services, with the help of our local partner. The deployment of such integrated services contract for our number one customer prefigures a new way of sustainable cooperation and optimized services delivery to our customers. ”
