Unlocking the power of data

Opsealog combines AI-powered data analysis and human expertise to help shipping and offshore companies tackle two of the most important challenges

Opsealog combines AI-powered data analysis and human expertise to help shipping and offshore companies tackle two of the most important challenges of our time: improving efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.


Data is the new oil, capable of helping companies identify opportunities, optimise their operations, whilst cutting costs and reducing emissions. But just like oil, data needs to be refined to achieve its full potential. This is where Opsealog, a performance management company based in the French city of Marseille, comes into play.


The company was born out of the vision of Arnaud Dianoux, a former seafarer who spent over a decade captaining offshore vessels and sailing on commercial ships. After witnessing first-hand the shortcoming of a sector still too reliant on spreadsheets and whiteboards, he founded Opsealog in 2015 to help companies capture and understand their data, and then action data-driven insights to optimise the operations of their fleets.


From his vision of delivering “efficiency as a service”, Opsealog developed MarInsights, a performance management service which integrates and processes complex data from a wealth of different sources onboard vessels, and uses artificial intelligence to highlight bigger trends, gaps, and areas for improvement. And Streamlog, its in-house onboard reporting software that is enabling shipowners and charterers to fully digitize fleet reporting. What makes Opsealog’s proposition unique is that artificial and human intelligence then come together, and each customer receives bespoke recommendations from Opsealog’s marine data experts on practical avenues to boost operational efficiency.  


Working closely with some of the world’s leading maritime companies, energy majors and national oil companies, including ADNOC Logistics & Services, Shell, Total Energies and EXXON Mobil, Opsealog has demonstrated that good data management has an immediate financial impact by reducing the fuel consumption of their offshore support fleets and allowing for better control of other operational costs. It also plays a role in reducing emissions, by removing unnecessary journeys, limiting idle time, and making sure vessels are deployed in optimal times and weather conditions.


The results are tangible and convincing: across the global fleet of over 500 vessels currently monitored by Opsealog, changes in operational behaviour have reduced fuel consumption and emissions by 15%. This is only the beginning, as a fast-evolving technological landscape allows for a wider range of data to be captured, and often automatically, which provides more granular details, delivered with increased speed and accuracy. Staying ahead of the curve, Opsealog is channelling every addition to the data supply to unlock even more efficiencies, which it estimates can cut fuel consumption and emissions by another 10-15% in the coming years.  


Confident about the concrete savings achieved by its services, Opsealog offers an incentive-based model in which companies only pay for the service once their contractually agreed fuel or emissions savings have been met. Delivering on its promises for the past six years, the company has grown rapidly, now numbering 45 employees. Now well-established in the Middle Eastern market, Opsealog has ambitions to expand its presence to more countries in the region, including Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.


Optimising operations has never been more important for the offshore oil and gas sector, which is confronted with the dual challenge of staying afloat in an increasingly uncertain economic context, while making its activities more sustainable. Data will play a key role to overcome both challenges, and Opsealog is dedicated to making the digital transition as smooth as possible for its clients, working in partnerships to break open the so-called “data silos” and create a tailored solution for each company and vessel. The impact of increased digitalisation will be felt beyond the sector, providing vital insights that will protect companies’ balance sheets and the environment for generations.
