Bolloré Transport & Logistics Cameroon Entrusted with the Logistics of an Offshore Operational Project

April 11th, 2017

Following their nomination by the Société Nationale d’Hydrocarbures (SNH), French oil company Perenco appointed Bolloré Transport & Logistics Cameroon for the management and logistical coordination of a gas power station expansion directly connected to a Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) facility off the coast of Cameroon.

Under the supervision of Dolores Biamou, Head of the Oil & Gas Department, the Bolloré Transport & Logistics Cameroon teams were, in particular, responsible for the administrative procedures relating to the importation of goods from Perenco and for their consignment, as well as for their road transport to the gas power station in Kribi.

4,256 pipes shipped from Greece were first unloaded at the Port of Douala and sent by abnormal load convoys (18 pipes per truck) to the Oilfield base. These heavy packages were then stored in a 5,200 sqm area during four months before their final transport by barge up to the Perenco offshore site off Kribi.

In total, 238 trips were necessary from the Port of Douala unloading docks to the Oilfield temporary storage area, mobilising different teams, with a 24-hour coverage shift  system, to ensure the unloading of the goods.

In addition, these outsize packages, with a total weight of 1,638 tonnes, were sent by sea and unloaded in the Port of Douala. As a result, over 200 packages, corresponding to a total volume of 10,280 cbm, were handled and transported by the Bolloré Transport & Logistics Cameroon teams.

For Stanislas Rodocanachi, SCM Manager for Perenco FLNG, the success of this installation out at sea is due first and foremost to the full control of the logistics chain by Bolloré Transport & Logistics. This full control of the logistics chain, which in particular involves complex multimodal transport solutions meeting Perenco requirements, was accompanied by documented monitoring of the logistical operations carried out by all Bolloré Transport & Logistics offices called upon in the course of this operation.
