“This contract enables us to continue our record of delivering certainty for our client, with a clear focus on safe and sustainable production and rehabilitation,” he said.
Thiess executive general manager – Asia Cluny Randell said the contract renewal was great recognition of the team’s ability to partner and grow together with the client and deliver long-term performance and productivity gains for Harum Energy.
“We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with our client and the community of Kutai Kartanegara, where we’ve worked together during COVID-19 to provide vaccinations for the local communities,” Randell said.
