Jeppesen Announces Three-Year Partnership With BP Shipping

-- Jeppesen Optimization Solutions Will be Used Aboard LNG, Product and Crude Oil Vessels to Increase Efficiency, Reduce Risks and Save Fuel Costs

ENGLEWOOD, Colorado, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeppesen has finalized a contract to provide its advanced optimization solutions to BP Shipping, one of the world's largest operators of oil and liquid natural gas (LNG) tankers. The contract will result in the installation of Jeppesen's Vessel and Voyage Optimization Solution (VVOS) on 52 BP vessels carrying crude oil and LNG shipments globally. The contract also provides for integration of Jeppesen's FleetManager shoreside component into BP Shipping operations. FleetManager will be used to track BP's owned and chartered vessels.

VVOS will help BP vessels optimize ship routes and engine settings to increase efficiency, minimize risks such as cargo loss and weather damage, and reduce fuel costs. Jeppesen's FleetManager component allows BP's shoreside managers to monitor vessel performance at sea, while receiving detailed reports on any vessel's current operating environment. In addition, Jeppesen's Vessel Routing Services provide the support of seasoned Ship Masters to analyze ship data and respond with 24/7 route planning and advisory services to optimize operational efficiency.

"Over the years, BP Shipping has demonstrated a strong commitment to improved vessel efficiency and reduction of carbon emissions," said Jeppesen director of Professional Services Joel Meltzner.  "We're honored that — following an in-depth evaluation of today's most advanced technologies — BP Shipping selected Jeppesen as its optimization partner for these vessels."

These Jeppesen solutions provide several key operational advantages to BP Shipping and its vessels at sea. These include the ability for Ship Masters to optimize routes according to Speed, ETA, Fuel Consumption and Ship Motions (based on detailed computer models of BP vessels and predicted impacts according to weather). In addition, C-MAP electronic charts are built into both the shore and vessel based software interface, allowing vessels to perform depth and obstruction checks before accepting a route.

"After a thorough tender process and onshore/offshore trials, we determined Jeppesen's quality weather data and forecasting models, combined with its advanced user interface for both vessels and shore staff, made the company's solutions a good fit for BP Shipping," said Dan Read, Global Voyage Operations Manager, BP Shipping. "We are excited to continue working with Jeppesen on this suite of solutions for our vessels and shipping operations."
