International energy logistics provider Peterson, part of the Royal Peterson Control Union Group, has announced expansion plans into Australia with the appointment of Ruaridh Hamilton as Australia Country Manager and the opening of a new office in Perth.

Sarah Moore, CEO of Peterson Energy Logistics, says, “We’re pleased to officially announce our expansion plans and begin Peterson’s journey in Australia. This strategic investment has been in the works for a considerable time and is an important part of Peterson’s future growth plans.”

It is through a broader lens that Peterson enters the region, with Control Union activities forming part of ambitious plans to anchor in the state, and with key strategic partnerships with leading infrastructure and supply chain partners, Peterson’s entry into this new geography seeks to bring new models to Western Australia and support the state’s vision towards a clean energy future.

Ruaridh Hamilton, Peterson’s Australia Country Manager, comments, “We are excited by the potential in the region and look forward to supporting current and new clients from across all industries with our proven integrated supply chain solutions.”

Australia is one of Peterson’s frontier regions and the centre of the company’s vision for delivering industry-leading logistics and consultancy services to clients operating in the region.

Peterson has been delivering integrated logistics services for more than 50 years and is established in key energy hubs around the world with operations in the UK, Netherlands, Guyana, Trinidad, Qatar and now Australia. The company’s new office will be located in Perth at Level 28, 140 St Georges Terrace.

Peterson is part of the wider Royal Peterson Control Union Group, which already has an established presence in Australia, with CIS Control Union Australia delivering commodity inspection and certification services for clients in the region for more than 30 years.
