Fuel efficiency system completes TOTAL proof of concept

France-based company Opsealog has announced the completion of Proof of Concept (POC) testing of its maritime fuel efficiency analytics platform in partnership with TOTAL E&P Angola, reporting an 11.5 per cent reduction in fuel consumed over a 6-month period across the fleet of 15 vessels included in the trial.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Fuel reduction targets for the ships, which included PSVs, AHTs, Tugs and FSIVs, had initially been set at 8 per cent, which Opsealog says were exceeded during testing. The actual 11.5 per cent saving is the equivalent of $836,000 in fuel saved over the six months.

“We are proud of this first success obtained thanks to the partnership with TOTAL E&P Angola and hope it can lead to further collaboration. Our first solution, ‘Marine Logistics’, includes other valuable topics where data analytics, as a key element, can improve efficiency and generate additional cost savings,” said Arnaud Dianoux, managing director of Opsealog.

Opsealog is a data analytics platform offering decision making tools for performance management in the offshore oil and gas supply chain, with the Marine Logistics system including modules covering fuel efficiency, fleet utilisation, and cost control.

Dashboards display KPIs, notifications and recommendations, and a Self Service Analysis option provides direct access to the database through Excel or any other data visualisation tool as required.

“Working with start-ups like Opsealog can help TOTAL control and reduce logistics costs. It is a right move and a step forward to our digital transformation,” said Laurent Pottier, marine specialist at TOTAL.

“Their dashboards allow our teams to identify areas with room for improvement. This was highlighted with the successful proof of concept on fuel efficiency carried out in Angola where tangible savings were generated. Opsealog goes to show that there are new solutions to be found to improve our fleet’s efficiency and we’re open to them.”{/mprestriction}
