Brunei Shell Petroleum rolls out Opsealog for fuel efficiency

Brunei Shell Petroleum Company (BSP), a joint venture between the Government of Brunei and Shell, has deployed Opsealog’s digital reporting and fleet optimisation systems across its 45-vessel offshore fleet following a successful trial.

Opsealog’s digital logbook, Streamlog, will be used to manage daily reporting and vessel activity monitoring for crews, replacing manual processes and spreadsheets to automatically generate noon and other reports, such as waste management, product inventory, health and safety, and engine running hours.

BSP has also deployed Opsealog’s Marinsights software to analyse operational patterns, identify inefficiencies, and optimise fuel efficiency.   

Following a successful pilot project on 10 vessels, which started in May 2021, monthly fuel savings ranging from 5% to 10% were achieved through a combination of data collection that provided a detailed picture of the fleet’s activities on dashboards, and analysis by Opsealog, delivered in weekly recommendations to the vessels and to BSP’s shoreside fleet management team.

The total reductions in CO2 emissions amount to approximately 10,300 tons since the beginning of the project, the firms note.

“Our work in collaboration with BSP demonstrates how digitalisation can have a major and almost immediate impact on fuel consumption and emissions,” said Maximilien Colucci, Account Manager at Opsealog.

“Our solutions started generating savings only a month after they were first deployed. By collaborating closely with BSP’s teams on shore and on board, we were able to identify major efficiency opportunities and unlock their potential.”

“Thanks to their pioneering and data-driven mindset, we are able to explore new areas and go even further in our optimisation actions and recommendations to help them achieve their efficiency and sustainability ambitions.”
