Edison Chouest Offshore Deploys Mojix STAR

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Mojix Inc. announced Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO), C Logistics Division, is deploying the Mojix STAR system in a large scale RFID initiative to bring a new level of visibility, precision and operational efficiency to the oil and gas industry at their Port Fourchon, La. facility, a large scale shorebase operation which services the majority of offshore logistics for offshore operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

Following a successful pilot of the Mojix system, the deployment to fully equip Port Fourchon’s C-Port and C-Port 2, an 18-slip operation, is underway, and will light up the entire port providing RTLS visibility utilizing passive RFID. In addition, RFID visibility will be expanded to all remaining production areas of Port Fourchon as well as warehouse facilities within the Edison Chouest Offshore family of companies. ECO, a leading provider of integrated supply management for drilling, production, and construction projects in deepwater and shelf locations throughout the Gulf of Mexico, is implementing RFID initiatives to support their ability to maximize efficiency, reduce cost and solve the critical issues of staging, manpower, space, loading, scheduling and logistics for oil drilling and production operations in the Gulf of Mexico. ECO plans to offer RFID enabled value added services as an option to their customers, which include the leading oil companies operating in the Gulf of Mexico.

“This RFID deployment enables improved precision, visibility and accountability to C-Logistics services. Based on our current analysis, we expect the deployment to render greater return on our customers’ investment in services, and in addition long term benefits of visibility to workflow and process that are expected to be significant,” said Dane Vizier, General Manager, Edison Chouest Offshore, C Logistics Division. “With the RFID solution we have the ability to know exactly where an item is at all times. Storage and staging will be improved with both textual and graphical representations of locations and definitive time records. This enables us to reconcile and standardize data, which improves the existing reporting functions we provide our customers.”
