The Global Downturn in the Oil and Gas Market has Driven Offshore Vessel Owners to Radically Cut Costs

The global downturn in the oil and gas market has driven offshore vessel owners to radically cut costs in order to withstand with the current disruptions in the market. As these changes in the market were taking shape we have responded to the customers by conducting an extraordinary and intensive review measures to maximize their cost savings. Our Technical manager Mr. Varun Thomas together with Shell Senior Technical Manager Mr. Sandeep Banerji, visited our customer vessels to assess the situations onboard, conduct training for vessel staff and to propose a course of action that helps them to reduce their operational cost. Trainings on Marine Lubricant Analysis and use of onboard Lube oil test kits were conducted which allows them to assess the Lubricant condition ,extend the oil drain intervals and reduce total lubricant consumption thereby reducing the operational costs.
