As an IT Company, we have
developed spreadsheet based files that have customised cargo work
calculations (Oil Software) for crude oil and product
tankers. Our standalone products (oil software) are designed
for the business of shipping cargo (chemicals, oil or products) via
shipping vehicles (tankers) or storing them ashore or in floating
storage units (FPSO). We prefer to work
with Microsoft Excel (images in site are snapshots of Lotus 1-2-3
latest products are standalone with a backend database storing the
manual entries for each port of call. The database can be used to
produce all kinds of MLI statistical analysis.
by user would be:
Cargo Ullages and temperatures
Gauge readings/Soundings of
Fuel/FW Tks Qty;
Sp. Gr. of Sea Water;
Interface sounding for free
water, if any;
OBQ/Slops on board, if any;
API and/or Density;
Tables required (6, 24 or 54
A/B); (selectable by mouse click)
results are transferred to the following with tabulated and/or chart
representations and may be printed at will.
required - Nett MT, Barrels, DWT or Draft;
Change SW density - same cargo/ballast;
A scratchpad for quick conversion from degrees F'ht
to C, Ft to M and vice versa with resultant DWT for that Ft or M.
Also included is the extremely powerful and much
used (by the Chief Officers), add-in called
Solver provides an optimal solution to various loading/discharging
scenarios in a matter of seconds.
You have a nominated BL Qtty of 630,000 Nett Barrels of Oseberg crude
oil Blend to load from Sture (Salt water) for discharge at Immingham
(brackish). With the given bunker ROBs and load temperatures, draft
restrictions, Solver can find a loading distribution to satisfy the
given constraints which would be - no list, even keel arrival, volumes
<= 98%, minimum stresses, etc.
We offer to write a
similar customized spreadsheet for a fee, for any tanker operator/owner
who may get in touch with us by e-mail for a sample spreadsheet at:
