Abu Dhabi National Oil Co (ADNOC) is deploying digital monitoring across its fleet to cut operating costs and reduce its environmental footprint
ADNOC Logistics & Services will install Opsealog’s Marinsights monitoring service on its 70 offshore supply vessels operating in the Middle East as part of its digitalisation strategy, as it expands offshore services in the region.
Marinsights is a performance management tool for monitoring and optimising marine offshore operations. It brings together data integration and visualisation with Opsealog’s consultancy support for improved fleet utilisation, cost savings and reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
ADNOC will implement Marinsights service on its platform supply vessels, anchor handling tug and supply ships, and fast support intervention vessels in the Middle East, under a multi-year contract with Opsealog.
This follows a proof-of-concept trial with 11 vessels conducted from May 2020. During this five-month trial, ADNOC Logistics & Services achieved a 12% reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, representing 572 m3 of fuel and 1,519 tonnes equivalent of CO2.
ADNOC Logistics & Services provides support to Abu Dhabi oil and gas supply chains, including operations monitoring and fleet performance optimisation.
With Marinsights, ADNOC Logistics & Services can unify data collection and implement a service that offers 360° visualisation of operations, enabling ADNOC to benefit from effective data integration, processing and visualisation.
Opsealog managing director Arnaud Dianoux outlined how Marinsights assisted ADNOC in fleet performance monitoring. “Our proof-of-concept trial with ADNOC Logistics & Services confirmed the verifiable difference that good data management can achieve,” he said. “Marinsights will enable ADNOC Logistics & Services to unlock new efficiencies, cut costs and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions across its fleet.”
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.
Data insights are helping vessel operators to improve their environmental performance and significantly reduce their carbon footprint.
Earlier this quarter, Saudi Aramco agreed to deploy GTT Group subsidiary Ascenz’s offshore vessel tracking and fuel monitoring services to optimise its fleet performance.
Ascenz will install fuel monitoring sensors and an internet-of-things network on vessels operated by Saudi Aramco in the Middle East Gulf and Red Sea, with data transferred regularly to a cloud facility for onward analytics.
Vessel and fleet optimisation and emissions reduction technologies will be discussed during Riviera’s series of virtual conferences and webinars during 2021 - use this link to access more details and register for these events
