Historically, the shipping industry has always taken a 'hurry up and wait' approach, meaning tankers would travel full steam ahead to meet a pre-agreed schedule, regardless of fuel was burned with 'full ahead' steaming, leaving vessels often sitting idle at port awaiting berthing slots. Virtual Arrival uses weather analysis and algorithms to calculate and agree a notional vessel arrival time, so that the ship will arrive 'just in time'. This radically reduces bunker fuel consumption and emissions, while easing congestion and enhancing safety. Waiting time compensation is calculated as if the vessel had arrived at the originally stipulated time, hence the name 'Virtual Arrival'. The savings financially or in carbon credits are calculated and split between the counterparties. This was a BP initiative that has since been adopted by the International Maritime Organisation. Virtual Arrival evolves a hundred years of maritime practice which could potentially lead to a reduction of many millions of tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions if it was adopted widely - and has saved BP $1.5 millionin bunker fuel costs alone. Of the 10,500 vessels approved by the worldwide tanker industry, BP Shipping only approves 30%to reach our high standards. - provides safe, efficient and environmentally responsible marine solutions - provides assurance to BP against a marine incident or oil spill - manages an international fleet of 49 vessels - integrates with FuelsValue Chains,Refining & Marketing and Integrated Supply &Trading - charters vessels to manage much of IST’s entrepreneurial trading activities - assesses ships for suitability for BP business - responsible for implementing the Group’s Marine Defined Practice * - on BP and time chartered ships has kept the same core values: For almost a century, BP Shipping Clean Seas Commercial Success Our fleet 81 = Total cargo shipped by BP* million tonnes of world’s total oil cargo shipping 39.1% = Total voyages by BP* 1,929 = BP shipping has been operating years99 of the world’s total oil voyages 30.5% time chartered vessels > 600 deadweight tonnes 111 1,183BP Maritime Services Officers 26%74% Sea staff v Shore staff (excluding contractors) 207 million tonnes of cargo volume in 2013 All the coal mined in the world in 1900 All the trash thrown out in America each year The amount of plastic produced in a year At this rate, it would take roughly 600 years to transport the whole of Mt Everest international vessels 49 Fire fighting equipment Twenty-two ships sailing under British Tanker Company Flag 1918 Non-Persistent Oil Heavy Persistent Oil Persistent Oil LNG / LPG Movements Regional 2013 - Tanker Arrival Virtual Valdez Crude USWC Lightering USG Lightering Americas clean movements to S.
