ASCO has opened its new Marine Supply Base in Darwin, Australia. The $110m purpose-built supply base will support Northern Australia’s growth as an international hub for the oil and gas industry.
ASCO Group CEO Derek Smith said that Australia is an important building block for them as they build their global operations through their four key regions Europe, Americas, Middle East and Africa and Australasia.
In Australia, ASCO can now support its customers through the entire supply chain cycle, and they are well placed to service the future expansion of this industry over the coming years, he added.
ASCO CEO in Australia Matt Thomas expressed that this is a tremendously exciting time for them. Already a number of international oil and gas companies including ConocoPhillips, Eni, INPEX and Shell will be supporting their operations from Darwin and the supply base will be a critical link in their supply chain operations, he concluded.
