Secure Energy Streamlines Operations with Petrotranz COTS

Calgary-based Petrotranz Inc. has published a case study about Secure Energy Services, a Canadian oilfield services company that implemented the Facility Portal of the Petrotranz Crude Oil Transportation System (COTS). COTS is a secure, easy-to-use, Web-based communication and collaboration platform that streamlines the manual processes and documentation required in the transportation of crude oil from wellhead to market. COTS provides users the ability to forecast shipping volumes, capture production information, and reconcile delivered quantities to complete and submit delivery forecasts online each month.

            After implementing the COTS solution, Secure Energy Services received significant and measurable improvements throughout the organization in the areas of risk reduction, operational efficiencies, and improvements in communication with their customers.

Results highlighted in the case study include:

  • Slashed Form A cycle time from 40 hours to 4 hours;
  • Cut Form C, shipper splits and final volume time from 24 hours to 2 hours;
  • Accelerated forecast correction turnaround from 2 weeks to 1 day;
  • Replaced receipt and data re-entry with real-time verification and review;
  • Reduced over nomination and missing/incorrect forecast risks;
  • Replaced “hit or miss” data verification with online analysis capabilities.

“It’s always about improving your customer service and relations,” said Rene Amirault, CEO of Secure Energy Services. “COTS lowers the risks involved in forecast data and allows us to improve our customer service and scale our business processes with less manpower.”
