ABERDEEN, U.K. — ASCO has signed an agreement with Kuldipsingh Port to provide technical expertise for its supply base operations, playing a major role in Suriname’s energy industry.
The agreement will see ASCO support new oil and gas developments in offshore Block 58 and collaborate with local businesses to encourage regional investment and key recruitment opportunities for local people.
ASCO said it can set up a supply base in new operating locations within a short time frame.
Fraser Stewart, International MD at ASCO, said, “Our frontier model ensures that relevant compliance with international standards is met while we develop and hone new skills in the local market, enabling self-sufficiency in the long-term. The focus on capability, and not just on local jobs, ensures the economic benefits are shared across the local economy."
ASCO has already deployed its model during the establishment of the Senegal Supply Base (SSB) in Dakar in 2021. Developed in less than six months, ASCO was asked to support SSB as a technical partner by providing offshore logistics technical expertise to support the development of the Sangomar Field.
