Entessa marine management for HESS/PDVSA joint venture

‘Synthesis’ logistics management solution for Hovensa refinery marine terminal.

Oil and gas logistics management solution provider Entessa, Inc. has delivered a major upgrade to the marine modules of its Synthesis supply chain management solution to Hovensa, a joint venture of Hess Corp. and Petroleos de Venezuela, (PDVSA). The upgrade streamlines the process of vessel, cargo, and dock scheduling at the US Virgin Islands-based Hovensa refinery marine terminal, one of the largest refineries in the world with a 525,000 bopd capacity.

Synthesis underpins Hovensa’s vessel positioning system. The release 4.0 brings enhanced functionality in loss control monitoring, dock utilization tracking, vessel turnaround analysis, and demurrage enhancements to ensure that marine operations are fully integrated with the refinery’s production planning process. State-of-the-art oil measurement tools, data formulation and reporting capabilities are provided through an improved cargo dashboard, which provides real time metrics. Hovensa’s Bob Williams said, ‘Entessa helps us run our cargo operations more efficiently. This new release brings functionality with management capability and use of the system’s analytical tools.’
