Total awarded Global Contract with THIESS

Paris, November 20, 2017 - Total, the 4th largest international oil and gas company has been awarded a 3-year lubricant contract with Thiess Pty Ltd with an option to extend the contract for up to 7 years. Over the next few years, Total will be supplying over 100 million litres of lubricants to Thiess operations in 5 countries, namely Australia, Indonesia, Mongolia, Chile and Canada.

Dirk de Bruyn, Total’s General Manager for Global Industry, believes that “Total was selected as the preferred supplier due to Total’s ability to supply products and services that met the requirements across all sites. It was our experience in transitioning complex sites that was the deciding factor. In addition Total was also able to offer supply terms and conditions that are consistent across all 5 countries. This coupled with a robust contract management system will allow both parties to focus improving operational performance.” 

Announcing the good news, Vice President, Specialties at Total Marketing & Services Asia Pacific and Middle East, Stephane Lagrue, shared that: “The contract has definitely marked a great start for Total to be working with the World’s largest mining services provider. This helps to foster a new partnership between Thiess and Total, as well as reinforcing Total’s presence in the global mining industry, especially in Asia. With this contract, Total Australia is committed to strengthen its supply chain by investing in 3 additional bulk storage sites to accompany its growth ambition on the Australian mining market.

The partnership of Total and Thiess represents a focus on the future and on mutual performance.
