These certainly aren’t easy or conventional times to be working in the offshore energy industry. Market conditions to be volatile, but with operating margins under sustained downward pressure. At the same time, suppliers are struggling to keep up with new regulations designed to protect the environment, not their profit margins. During this challenging period, innovation is integral to ensuring future success. Data has the potential to transform maritime within this carbon and cost-conscious context.Read more
Opsealog secures multi-year contract with ADNOC Logistics & Services
OPSEALOG TO ROLL OUT ITS CUTTING-EDGE MARINSIGHTS SOLUTION TO ADNOC LOGISTICS & SERVICES’ OFFSHORE FLEET, THE MARITIME ARM OF ADNOC, OPTIMISING RESOURCES AND GENERATING COST AND EMISSIONS SAVINGS
Marseille, 03 February 2021: Opsealog, a French company specialising in performance management for the marine logistics sector, has secured a contract with ADNOC Logistics & Services, the maritime arm of ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company) to apply its cutting-edge performance management solution Marinsights to ADNOC Logistics & Services’ offshore fleet.
Following the successful results of a proof-of-concept trial with 11 vessels, ADNOC Logistics & Services has signed a multi-year contract with Opsealog to deploy its Marinsights service in a fleet of 70 offshore supply vessels in its Middle East operations, including PSVs (Platform Supply Vessel), AHTSs (Anchor Handling Tug Supply) and FSIVs (fast support intervention vessels).
Marinsights is a performance management tool that monitors and optimises marine offshore operations, bringing together data integration and visualisation with Opsealog’s consultancy support, delivering fuel, emissions and cost savings, and improved fleet utilisation.
During the five-month trial period with Opsealog starting in May 2020, ADNOC Logistics & Services achieved an impressive 12% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, representing 572 m3 of fuel and 1519 TEQ of CO2.
ADNOC Logistics & Services provides support to Abu Dhabi Oil and Gas’s supply chain, including operations monitoring and fleet performance optimisation. With Marinsights, ADNOC Logistics & Services’ can now unify data collection and implement a service that gives it a 360-degree vision of operations, enabling them to benefit from effective data integration, processing, and visualisation.
Arnaud Dianoux, Managing Director of Opsealog, said: “We’re delighted to be working with ADNOC Logistics & Services. Our trailblazing data integration and analysis tools, combined with the expert support of our inhouse team, will enable ADNOC Logistics & Services to unlock new efficiencies, cut costs and reduce its GHG emissions across its fleet.
“Our proof-of-concept trial with ADNOC Logistics & Services confirmed the verifiable difference that good data management can achieve. Our technology enables the offshore sector to leverage new efficiencies from digital solutions, including reduced fuel consumption and better control of other operational costs, all of which helps to protect their margins.
“At a time when the defining challenge facing the energy and maritime sectors is decarbonisation, Opsealog’s data insights are also helping clients to improve their environmental performance and significantly reduce their carbon footprint. Our team’s extensive vessel design knowledge will enable us to benchmark operational behaviours, new technologies, and become the go-to contact for a range of critical issues, including propulsion transition, energy efficiency projects, and fleet utilisation, as well as supporting during the tender process.”
Opsealog tracks 470 vessels worldwide with clients across the global energy sector, spanning energy majors, national oil companies, regional operators and affiliates, to improve their marine logistics operations. To date, Opsealog has helped to deliver 80,000+ tonnes of CO2 savings, as well as supporting compliance with MARPOL’s Waste Management and Fresh Water Production regulations.
