regional updates with Fazelbhoy

Fazelbhoy sets scene as experts give regional updates

Synergy Offshore Chief Executive, Fazel Fazelbhoy, revealed the scale of the downturn facing OSV operators in Middle East waters when he moderated a session of regional updates at Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East yesterday. Generally, the picture was bleak although the Saudi market has shown signs of life recently as Saudi Aramco invites bids for various major offshore projects.

Fazelbhoy, an offshore expert who is expecting significant restructuring across the sector as OSV companies and their bankers come to terms with plunging vessel values, says that an influx of tonnage from South East Asia has only added to the woes of local owners as utilisation levels and day rates have come under further pressure. Many vessels, he says, are valued in company books at levels which are wholly unrealistic today and cites examples of financed ships worth just 30% of their value four years ago.

According to statistics from Pareto Securities, more than 40% of the global fleet of 3,500 anchor handlers and platform supply vessels are currently idle; approximately 730 vessels are laid up, and there is a backlog of 350 more vessels ready or nearly ready to be delivered from China and South East Asia. These vessels constitute a particular threat to Middle East operators, Fazelbhoy says, because this region – with low breakeven production rates – is likely to recover first. The Middle East fleet consists of 450 units, about 100 of them from South East Asia, with 50 currently laid up.

Fazelbhoy believes that 2017 is likely to be the worst year of the downturn as energy companies are only just beginning to consider lifting E&P spending constraints. This has seen global spend slashed from $650bn in 2013, Fazelbhoy says, to $400bn in 2016, and a further $40bn cut by the end of this year. However, from 2018, it is possible that spending will stabilise or begin to inch upwards again, filtering through to vessel operators probably in two-to-three years’ time.

However, despite some positive signs in Saudi Arabia including a requirement by US offshore contractor McDermott for more than 200 offshore vessels of various types, Fazelbhoy is convinced that more OSV corporate failures are likely in the months ahead “as bankers make the right decision to take some of these companies off life support”. He goes so far as to predict a sub-prime crisis in the sector unless bankers bite the bullet and revalue vessels realistically.

Jasamin Fichte, managing partner of law firm Fichte & Co, spoke of the Iranian market which many had believed held such potential but which had so far come to nought. She mentioned the $4.8bn deal between Total and the National Iranian Oil Company but said that she did not believe any mobilisation had started yet and, despite the lifting of sanctions, there was still no way of getting paid from Iran in dollars.

Captain Koh Chen Tien, Chairman of Makamin Offshore Saudi Ltd, gave an upbeat view of that market in which he said that E&P spending was rising significantly as Saudi Aramco fixed more deals with its long-term agreement partners including the National Petroleum Construction Company of Abu Dhabi. Meanwhile, the world’s largest energy company had invited bids from other possible long-term agreement partners including Lamprell, Subsea 7, Aker and Technip.

Then it was the turn of Captain Sunil Chaudhary, Founding Director of CS Offshore, to give a brief on the West African market. Utilisation of PSVs in that market was running at a little more than 50%, he said, but anchor handlers were down below 20%. Meanwhile, local bank funding was virtually non-existent in today’s market, partly because of very high interest rates, and partly because banks with little understanding of shipping required a full payout over the relatively short tenors of contracts that have come to market.

damen ship yard sharjah

Never a better time for a major repair, says Albwardy Damen boss

“I don’t think you’ll ever get a cheaper drydocking ,” commented Lars Seistrup, Managing Director of Albwardy Damen. Speaking at Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East in Abu Dhabi, he told Seatrade: “If an owner has some major repairs to carry out, or is considering a conversion, there’ll never be a better time. I don’t think I’ve ever seen repair prices so low.”

Luckily, Albwardy Damen has various newbuilding projects on the go and has recently started work on the biggest rotor tug ever built, a 46-metre vessel with a bollard pull of 100 tonnes, for Rotterdam-based Kotug. The Sharjah-based shipyard also has a four-legged accommodation jack-up unit under construction with capacity for 120 persons, and a Damen ASD 2913 tug is also being built for Saqr Port in Ras Al Khaimah. Recent deliveries include two 32-metre long tugs with bollard pulls of 80 tonnes, built for stock, and two CSD500 dredgers for customers in Bangladesh.

Seistrup reveals how offshore operators’ approach to routine repairs has changed as they struggle with today’s disastrous day rates. Many of them, he says, have adopted a “fire-fighting” approach which they realise is short-sighted, but on which they have little choice.

“Not everything needs to be repaired on a planned maintenance basis,” Seistrup concedes. “You can afford to wait on some components. But essential parts which could potentially affect operations and cause lost hire must be carefully looked after.”

The shipyard MD reveals that a digital service is nearly ready for launch in which various on-board operating parameters will be monitored and integrated into a dashboard system enabling vessel operators and charterers to track key elements of vessel performance from computers or I-pads or smart phones in their offices or homes ashore. This will not only show real-time values of parameters including vibration, temperature, speed and fuel consumption, but will also identify trends.

Live Autonomous Demonstration Steals the Show at Seatrade Offshore Marine & Work Boats Middle East

An unprecedented demonstration involving remote control of a USV located in Dubai from an autonomous control station situated in ADNEC Abu Dhabi takes place at the Seatrade Offshore Marine and Work Boat Middle East 2017 show.

In a previous statement earlier this month, UAE manufacturer of specialty marine electronics- MAP Marine Technologies [MAP-Tech] - announced the launch of its second generation MAP Pro- Autonomous Conversion Kit, a device and system that can convert any regular boat to an Unmanned Surface Vessel [USV]. They also promised a never-before live demonstration of this system at Seatrade Offshore Marine & Work Boats Middle East, taking place in Abu Dhabi 25-27 September, and they have delivered on this promise.

USV demonstrations to date have involved a showcasing of autonomous operation, a display of routes and maneuvers, where the vessel and operator are within the same proximity. Adnane El Soussi, Head of Robotics at MAP-Tech, comments “We will showcase autonomous way-point navigation and remote manual control, as well as relay of sensory data - such as radar and camera feedback and control. What separates us from the usual demos is that we will be operating a vessel that is not in our line of sight, being over 100km away.” He further comments “This is a more true depiction of USV operations, and a testament to our MAP Pro system’s capabilities.”

The vessel used in the demonstration is a regular recreational 31ft GRP craft, which is outfitted with a MAP Pro device allowing for autonomous control of the vessel. The boat, situated at Dubai Creek, will respond to the operator’s control at ADNEC in Abu Dhabi through MAP-Tech’s latest ground control station- the C2Pro. Mr. El Soussi explains “It is a portable command & control unit. While it was primarily designed for USVs, it can be used to control any unmanned vessel whether by land, air, or sea.”

The live demonstration takes place on Exalto Emirates stand [N-20] at the event: One of the largest providers of quality marine equipment -carrying over 14,500 different products in their catalogue- and is the master distributor of MAP-Tech products in the region.

SOMWME Day two deals

A day of deals at Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats 2017

Day 2 of Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats - held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council - saw a number of deals take place on the show floor and some high profile visits from senior dignitaries.

The first deal saw the signing of a protocol of delivery for the first of two Damen Fast Crew Suppliers 4008 ordered by Marine Core & Charter LLC (marinec2.com) of Dubai, an integrated offshore support and marine services company that manages and operates a wide range of workboats, tugs and barges. The ceremony took place on the Damen stand where Mr Pascal Slingerland of Damen Shipbuilding Group presented Mr Adib Abdel Massih, Chief Executive Officer of Marine Core & Charter, with a scale model of an FCS 4008 to mark the event.

The 41-metre FCS 4008 is a high performance, offshore support vessel capable of carrying 90 persons plus equipment and cargo at speeds of up to 28 knots in a wide range of weather conditions. The vessel will be officially handed over to Marine Core on 28 September.

The second deal saw Abu Dhabi Ports, the master developer, operator and manager of commercial and community ports within the emirate of Abu Dhabi, announce the purchase of three new tugs. The new tugs - which are equipped with the latest technology and have a bollard pull power of 30 tonnes - will service both Mussafah Port and Zayed Port and complement Abu Dhabi Port’s existing advanced fleet. The two companies to win the public tender were announced during a signing ceremony - one of the contracts was awarded to Damen, and the two others to Sanmar.

Ambassador Frank J. M. Mollen of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands visited 6 Dutch companies participating at the event, along with Senior Commercial & Economic Advisor, Yela Naletto.

Please … no more ships!

Banks should play a much more proactive role in badly needed consolidation across the offshore support vessel sector, said René Kofod-Olsen, chief executive of Topaz Energy and Marine, as he declared that the last thing that was needed was another round of new contracting.

Speaking at the keynote panel discussion at Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East in Abu Dhabi yesterday, he said that consolidation was more than just lumping some companies together with no financial restructuring. This was merely pushing the problem down the line. More fundamental restructuring was required.

“Some of the mergers we have seen are simply putting a few companies together with the same debt burden,” he declared.

Traditionally in shipping, he said, at the first signs of a market recovering after a downturn, owners would rush out to order more ships. But he noted that the OSV sector is awash with tonnage and pleaded for no new contracting even though attractive deals are potentially available, particularly in China.

He drew parallels with other sectors, noting that some container lines had recently placed multi-ship orders for ultra large vessels in another over-tonnaged shipping sector.

Kofod-Olsen also observed that the oil and gas industry urgently needs to re-establish its lead in declaring a sustainable future as part of the world’s essential energy mix. The renewable energy sector which, he said, contributed low single digits in terms of a contribution to world supplies, was driving 95% of the conversation. This, he said, would make it increasingly difficult to attract both financial and human capital to the oil and gas business in future.

Energy companies likely to face skills shortage

 

Oil and gas companies that have slashed jobs since the oil price crash could well find it difficult to recruit staff with the right skill sets when exploration and production (E&P) spending picks up again.

The manning challenge could well affect both rig operators and oil and gas service companies, delegates at the manning session of the Seatrade Offshore Marine Workboats Middle East event in Abu Dhabi were told yesterday. Personnel who had left the industry might not return when the sector picks up, and those that are potentially available may not have the necessary skill sets for an increasingly digitalised offshore energy sector.

Lars Schandorff, HR manager, leadership development, at Seadrill Global Services warned against a “last-minute approach” to hiring personnel and said that companies need to have a strategy for recruiting large numbers of people in a short time, as may well be necessary.

There could be a seven-or eight-year gap between laying people off and a new wave of recruitment, he said, and technology over that time would have inevitably moved on. Even if people who had changed course in life wanted to return to the sector, they might not be up-to-date with the latest equipment, Schandorff said.

Session moderator, Michael Elwert, Elektrans group chief executive, said that energy firms and service companies had become completely “cost-arrogant” when oil prices were high, and a “war for talent” was likely when companies endeavour to attract and retain the best people in future. Greater ship autonomy, he said, was inevitable, and older people who had left the OSV sector, for example, might not be suitable.

John Lloyd, ceo of the Nautical Institute, agreed that more autonomy is inevitable but declared that “the benefit will be in the journey”. He could not foresee the autonomous operation of complex ocean-going vessels, and the complications of handling them at the beginning and end of voyages. But William Tobin, Underwriting Syndicate Manager, Offshore, for the Shipowners P&I Club, reminded the audience that human error is still the main reason for claims.  

Reverend Paul Burt, Gulf and South Asian Director for the Mission to Seafarers, said that his work had revealed the essential nature of trust between ship managers and their employees. In cases he had seen where trust had broken down, he said, the company itself was in the process of breaking down.

Time to prepare for the EU MRV Regulation

Time to prepare for the EU MRV Regulation

By Stamatis Fradelos, Principal Engineer, Operational Environmental Performance, ABS 

The European Union’s Regulation 2015/757 covering the Monitoring, Reporting and Verification of CO2 emissions from ships sailing in European waters will have significant implications when it comes into effect in January 2018. EU MRV requires shipowners and operators to establish and maintain accurate processes for all aspects of the regulation to ensure they are in compliance, in co-operation with relevant stakeholders.

To support industry in its preparations for MRV implementation, ABS undertook a project with clients and other stakeholders to establish a clear interpretation of the regulation, how it will affect users and what steps must be taken to achieve and demonstrate compliance.

By taking a proactive approach to MRV compliance the partners were able to develop the knowledge required to meet the regulatory enforcement date. It also assisted in identifying where fuel measurement systems, data flow, control activities and reporting needed to be aligned with the requirements of the regulation.

While options for manual reporting exist, they will introduce a substantial administrative burden in order to be sufficiently accurate and robust for long-term compliance. Even vessels operated with a dedicated ship management software solution for procurement or maintenance are not necessarily outfitted suitably to perform the functions required for compliance.

The mountain of data to be handled supports the use of an electronic platform that integrates other ship management activities and allows for automated data entry. Integrated and secure electronic data capture can give higher confidence in data and calculations related to MRV reporting.

ABS continues to work with ship operators, assessing monitoring plans and completing voluntary third-party verification of emissions reports. Its Nautical Systems Vessel Performance tool can be used to report data for compliance including CO2 emissions under EU MRV.

ABS Nautical Systems Sees Significant Growth in Middle East OSV Sector

As oil prices remain low, major Middle Eastern oil producers are looking to reduce costs across their operations and are demanding greater transparency from their suppliers.  This is driving an increased demand for fleet management software in the Middle East offshore support vessel (OSV) sector.  To remain competitive in this environment, OSV operators need solutions that streamline operations, facilitate compliance, and provide accurate and detailed records of their operations to help them conform to charter party requirements.  

Through its fleet management software suite, NS Enterprise, ABS Nautical Systems (NS) offers a solution that provides real-time insight into key performance parameters and compliance conditions. In the Middle East, ABS Nautical Systems recently secured contracts with Hadi Hamad Al Hamman, Rawabi Vallianz Offshore Services and Maridive & Oil Services. In each software installation, the ABS Nautical Systems’ team worked with the owner to customize the software to meet their unique business objectives and processes while maintaining focus on improving efficiency of operations to reduce costs, remain compliant and offer greater visibility to their stakeholders.

The NS Enterprise software is designed to provide clients with an intuitive and easy onboard user experience with one click access to data, key tasks, dynamic work spaces, dashboards and customized searches. With ABS NS software, management has access to accurate data captured on board to make better decisions back in the office. Integrating the NS Maintenance, Purchasing, Payroll, Crewing and HSQE modules enables clients to unify compliance data across their OSV fleets, providing greater visibility into what occurs on board the vessels, and ensuring that the crew has access to critical maintenance and compliance data to support day-to-day operations and comply with charter party contracts and other regulations.  

Proper adoption of ABS NS software is critical to client success and is implemented through a collaborative five stage process of configuration and training that leads to successful fleet-wide acceptance of the NS software. The ABS Nautical Systems Professional Services team, led by Saqib Kasim, works closely with client teams and Nikos Goudoulias, Director of Sales for the Middle East region, to ensure the software is implemented based on client requirements and the right training is in place to drive adoption from day one. The process also enables clients to map existing business processes into ABS NS software applications to migrate data effectively from legacy systems.  In addition, a “Train the Trainer” program allows clients to easily transition to the new software in practical phases.

NS Enterprise is a comprehensive fleet management solution designed to improve the accuracy of data captured on board for compliance and decision support. The software enables OSV operators in the Middle East to improve efficiency, increase safety and deliver greater transparency to their clients.

Abu Dhabi offshore show opens doors as oil market strengthens

Abu Dhabi show opens doors as oil market strengthens

Seatrade Offshore Marine Workboats Middle East opens its doors on Monday morning against a backdrop of firmer oil prices and positive sentiment. The Abu Dhabi event provides a key setting for workboat operators and service providers to show off latest technologies and sector developments. Inevitably, in this heavily energy-dependent region, the condition of the oil and gas markets, and energy prices generally, are an essential bellwether of this diverse market.

At close of business on Friday, Brent crude had climbed steadily to reach $56.76 a barrel and West Texas Intermediate closed at $50.66 a few hours later. The Brent price has continued to rise steadily over recent weeks, notching up a gain of more than 24% in the three months since June 26. This is a significant development, according to energy analysts, which reflects a continuing rise in global energy demand and reasonably robust compliance with OPEC production constraints. These have been agreed up until next March but there is talk of extending them beyond this date. Meanwhile, oil has increased its share of the global energy mix in both 2015 and 2016, reversing a 15-year trend in the opposite direction.

Experts are still split over future oil prices, however, with some still sticking to the “lower for longer” or “lower for ever” arguments. Most agree, though, that increasing volatility will be a key feature of the future market as global oil demand continues to outstrip production increases, and the impact of lower E&P spending by energy majors means less new oil in the market. For Middle East producers, this is all good news because they enjoy the lowest breakeven production costs anywhere in the world. Despite the production constraints, national oil companies in the Gulf have largely stuck to their strategy of maintaining or growing market share as production in other more expensive regions has been curtailed.
