Empired continues winning streak with $15m InterOil deal
Empired has inked a $15 million managed services contract with InterOil, as the company continues its winning run.
The five year contract will see Empired providing managed services for all of the oil and gas company’s core information technology systems, including infrastructure and communications, finance and corporate systems, plus exploration and production systems.
Russell Baskerville, Empired managing director, says the deal provides Empired with a range of growth opportunities, including a low cost, low risk platform for the company to launch its services into the Asian region.
The Perth-based company has established office facilities and technical capability in Singapore to support the contract.
“Empired are confident in leveraging the work we are doing with InterOil to secure additional strategic contracts in the region,” the company notes.
Baskerville says the deal will also enable Empired to enhance its oil and gas expertise through the opportunities InterOil will provide as they continue the development of their core assets.
“Importantly, this contract leverages the full breadth of Empired’s services portfolio and will provide new work across all our lines of business,” Empired says.
The contract is the latest in a line of big wins. Only last month, Empired announced it had won a $20 million, five-year contract with Rio Tinto to provide application managed services for more than 170 applications.
The company has also recently signed a $12 million deal with New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries, and a managed services contract with Toyota.
At the time of the Rio Tinto win, Baskerville said the company had a strong pipeline of large strategic contracts it was pursuing, and was confident of securing additional wins in the near term.
