Hedge Against Supply Disruptions

Real-time tracking of the Forties supply chain

A vast network of over 50 offshore oil fields, four pumping stations, refining, storage, and 209 kilometers of onshore pipeline make up the Forties oil network. This region is rumored to have frequent technical challenges, production difficulties, and last-minute cargo shipment delays or changes. With our daily reporting, swift alerting, and a snapshot of oil storage, pipeline flow, shipments and refinery activity, we provide clarity into an opaque market. We have an extensive in-the-field network of high-tech, proprietary monitors that provide real-time tracking and measurements of production levels, cargo shipments, outages and other key factors. 

We shine a light into this important corner of the global oil market:

  • 360° View: We not only monitor the flow on the onshore Forties pipeline, but also the operations of the fractionation plant at Kinneil, the storage at Dalmeny and the Grangemouth refinery. With this view into the entire system, anticipate cargo deferrals or other disruptions and track all floating storage and fixtures.
  • Real-Time Alerts: Receive updates every half hour on flows to the on-shore portion of Forties pipeline and real-time operational status of the fractionation facility. See data for ships loading at Hound Point, discharges at Finnart, and changes in storage Dalmeny. We aggregate this information into a daily oil figure for a complete picture of oil available for export.

TRADERS:

Rely on our real-time alerts to make more informed decisions. By receiving updates on disruptions every half hour, you will know what could affect the price of the BFOE marker ahead of the market.

ANALYSTS:

Generate and maintain supply and demand balances by using oil balance numbers, storage inventory data and shipment statistics to track regional movements. 

EXPLORATION & PRODUCTION COMPANIES:

Mitigate risk with timely alerts on disruptions or changes in shipment schedules.  Keep track of critical storage capacity by analyzing storage utilization rates and effective capacities. React quickly to changing oil balance numbers for possible production issues.
