Nicor Installs Advanced Management System Aboard Supply Boat

Walter Todd, president of American Information Management Corporation of Bay St. Louis, Miss., has announced that the Genesis Information Management System has been installed on the 192-foot offshore supply boat Long Island, owned and operated by Nicor Marine, Inc. of Morgan City, La. The vessel is under contract to Conoco Oil, Inc., and operates out of Frand Isle, La. With this installation, Conoco and Nicor join the ranks of industry leaders who are utilizing this innovative system on their vessels.

The Genesis System solves three major problems for Conoco: reducing fuel burn from the normal, everyday underway operation of the boat; inventory control of fuel loaded abroad the vessel and fuel transferred to the rigs; and with the electronic log, shoreside management has a simple, easy-to-use report to maximize vessel utilization.

With this electronic log, Conoco's transportation manager takes an active role in managing the vessel utilization and maximizing productivity.

In addition, the system gives a read-out on the inventory control for dry bulk drilling mud abroad the vessel.

In its everyday servicing of oil rigs the boat can, with information generated by the Genesis System, set its throttles to maintain the best fuel efficiency yet still meet the needs of the rigs and platforms it needs to service.
