Brunei Shell Petroleum agrees contract with ION for logistics management

Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP), a joint venture between the Government of Brunei and Shell, has agreed a five-year contract with ION Geophysical Corporation for the delivery of a digital system to manage its marine logistics.

The Marlin software package to be implemented will include vessel monitoring, berth management, and visual reporting tools for material supply workflows.

The system will be used to digitalise a range of manual processes and will also interface with existing tools, providing improved data and information sharing for the management of BSP’s fleet of approximately 70 vessels servicing over 200 offshore structures. 

“We are thrilled to be able to embark on this journey with BSP, to see them become a leader in digital integration of exploration and production marine logistics,” said Stuart Darling, Senior Vice President of ION’s Software group.

“With every engagement, our goal is to demonstrate excellent service quality; we are delighted that our solution was chosen as part of a competitive tender process. By working closely with BSP over the next five years, we intend to leverage Marlin’s robust, cloud-based infrastructure, to digitise as many workflows as possible to ensure BSP reaps maximum value from their investment.”
