Total wins newcrest lihir gold mine mining contract
Paris, September 6, 2018 - - Total, the 4th largest international Oil and Gas company has been awarded a 4-year contract with Newcrest’s Lihir Gold Mine in Papua New-Guinea (PNG), following a competitive tender process that began last November.
During the term of the contract, Total will be supplying 14 million litres of lubricants to the 6th largest gold mine in the world with a production of more than 900,000 Oz of gold per annum.
Premium lubricants and greases as well as personalized services linked to the bulk facilities, the onsite management of lubricants and the oil analysis management were offered.
Andrew Morton, Total PNG’s General Manager said “This contract with one of the largest gold mines in PNG helps to reaffirm TOTAL’s position as the leading lubricant supplier to the mining industry in PNG. It is also a recognition for the team’s work and their mind-set to continue to drive long-term client value”.
Jean Lescure, Total Mining Director Asia Pacific and Middle East said that the contract strengthens Total’s existing global working relationship with Newcrest. We believe our local presence in PNG and our track record of transitioning complex sites in remote environments were key in Newcrest’s decision of awarding this business to Total.
Total has been in PNG since 2012 and has a large portfolio of businesses that includes Upstream activities, retail and lubricants.
