French marine offshore and performance management company Opsealog has announced a 10 per cent reduction in gas emissions related to marine offshore operations in partnership with its exploration & production (E&P) clients.
Monitoring over 400 vessels worldwide, the company aims to further reduce its environmental impacts at sea in 2020 by promoting good practices and assuring procedure compliance.
Arnaud Dianoux, CEO and co-founder of Opsealog, commented: “The successful results we attained in 2019 are equivalent to 10 days of carbon-neutral activities per vessel per year. When projected to a global fleet of a major E&P company, that number could reach over a 1000. This exceptional performance was possible only due to the implementation on a global scale of Marinelog, our Performance Management Service as well as our clients’ commitment. The tool and service provided by Opsealog enables Oil & Gas Operators to boost Marine Offshore Operations efficiency by improving operational practices on four use cases: Fuel Efficiency, Fleet Utilisation, Environmental Impact, and Cost Control.”
E&P players need broader access to operational data in order to obtain relevant information and manage their environmental impact. Opsealog’s Marinelog helps customers take advantage of the information already available, helping logistics departments make better logistic decisions.
Marinelog’s Cloud platform collects and integrates data from multiple sources, including fuel monitoring systems, onboard reporting software, weather, and vessel tracking. A team of industry experts analyse the data and provide recommendations. Opsealog’s account managers exchange with E&P clients through periodic efficiency meetings, where they promote innovative ways to improve performance. The improvement of the vessels’ operational behaviour is measured by algorithms and translated into key performance indicators that are available in a web application and periodic reports.
Marinelog’s Environmental feature allows Affiliates and headquarters of Oil & Gas companies to better report environmental results internally and externally. Opsealog’s performance management and analysis enable operators to measure and reduce the atmospheric impacts of specific activities and assess improvements between different periods.
By providing the technical tools and the expertise to translate data into tangible actions, Opsealog has successfully demonstrated that data management, analysis, and consulting services combined can be an excellent tool for improving operational practice.
