The scope of Petrasco's work includes the coordination of load-out from the origin in Germany, transportation to the loading port, cargo handling at the Algerian port, and oncarriage to the remote desert rig site.

In addition, Petrasco will negotiate and oversee all port charges, the chartering of a suitable vessel, and import documentation and Customs clearance services.

Petrasco, which is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) for Dubai, has called on fellow WWPC member for the Netherlands, Steder Group, to assist with the transport and port operations for this project.
