Project Summary:

Santos GLNG required specialist procurement expertise to plan, tender, negotiate and implement operational contracts during Santos’ transition from their major upstream facilities and downstream plant construction phase on the $18.5 Billion GLNG projects, to the business’ Upstream and Downstream production phase.

Procurement Co was engaged to deliver end to end procurement program for operational goods and services over a 12-month period. The packages ranged from local goods and services to highly complex multi-currency high value/risk agreements with international vendors. 

Procurement Co implemented the solution through an integrated team approach working within Santos’ systems and processes and coordination with Santos’ internal stakeholders and supplier base. Despite the time pressures and complexities of the various contracts, Procurement Co successfully delivered the scope on time, on budget, and with a forecast benefit of 10% total contract spend in negotiated savings to the client.

  • Stakeholder engagement and management of different areas for the project such as engineering, operations, legal, finance and procurement.
