From October 18th - 19th, 2018, Bolloré Logistics participated in the 5th FPSO & FLNG & FSRU* Asia Pacific Summit held in Shanghai - China.
This event gathered more than 800 decision makers from the FPSO, FLNG and FSRU industry sectors to discover the latest industry trends, technological wave for digitization and business model innovations.
Bolloré Logistics, represented by their Chinese entity, was awarded the 'Outstanding FPSO Logistics Contractor of the Year'. Bruce BOUDAILLER, Oil & Gas Regional Director at Bolloré Logistics Asia-Pacific, who received the award on behalf of the team, said: 'We are very appreciative of the confidence and loyalty shown by our customers and partners. Bolloré Logistics has been a leader for the last 15 years in supporting the FPSO industry, with a track record of more than 20 FPSO conversion projects handled, and contract logistics for around the same number of FPSOs in production.'
This experience allowed Bolloré Logistics to be entrusted with a high profile FSRU project which was completed last year. The award comes as earned recognition of the professionalism shown by Bolloré Logistics' Oil & Gas teams located in the construction and conversion countries, as well as in the countries from where all materials originate.
'Our valuable and experienced long lasting colleagues, which must be seen as our main asset, are prepared to face the industry upturn after the challenging last three years that the industry went through,' added Bruce BOUDAILLER.
Kari GU, Oil & Gas Product Manager at Bolloré Logistics China, confirms the readiness of the teams to cater for any new opportunity: 'China is becoming the main location in terms of conversions and construction, with what appears as a shift from Singapore and South Korea. Together with our Oil & Gas teams of specialists, we are ready to support locally and internationally any new project related to FPSO, FLNG or FSRU,' she highlighted.
