INTEGRATED LOGISTICS SERVICES (ILOGS)
ILOGS is in charge of oil logistics. It offers integrated logistics and high-level storage services to the oil industry. Its location in the port of Pointe-Noire and the setting up of its logistics base in the port basin, with a quay of more than 300 m², give it a strategic position in its sector of activity.
In 2014, ILOGS’s activity experienced a great change with:
- The positive evolution of the production activity for a resident customer;
- Encouraging drilling activity for third parties;
- Confirmation of departure for another operator;
- The realization of the SNPC/PEPA Rig Move from Pointe-Noire to Brazzaville and that of a race in the department of the Cuvette by ILOGS, also strongly marked the profile of the year 2014.
Key appreciated hallmarks of ILOGS in 2014 are:
- A tonnage score processed below the two-month annual budget target to forecast tonnage handled at 250KT;
- Fairly good sales performance;
- Exceedingly satisfactory operational results;
- Good investment performance with the delivery of newly developed port yards;
- Continuation of major infrastructure projects and modernization of ILOGS operational capabilities.
This assessment shows that if the trends are confirmed, the 2014 financial year should enable the company regain its profitability. The year 2015, for ILOGS, is the turning point for a period of optimization, capacity building and acceleration of performance after 2014, which confirms the recovery that began in 2013. This prospect of a turning point towards a decisive phase aiming at the full local impact of the logistics of the many major oil projects that are, notably MOHO NORD and LIANZI, just to name a few.
To continue on this encouraging trend, the main orientations of 2015 focus on:
- Reinforcement of conditions of security, safety and the quality approach;
- Optimization of infrastructure of the Petroleum Services Centre;
- Exploitation of the intensification of maritime traffic and improvement of ILOGS deliverables;
- Optimization of the fleet of operating equipment (cranes, trucks, elevators, semi-trailers, etc.);
- Construction of a new modern and functional mechanical workshop;
- Rationalization of management with particular emphasis on maintenance, leasing of equipment and personnel costs, thus allowing the reinforcement of the commercial action with the consolidation of operational capacities by development outside the CSP.
Hence the opening of the Brazzaville agency which will help improve port handling operations; the setting up of a new organization, as well as the training and professionalization of human resources. All of these perspectives are proof of a realistic ambition for the future of ILOGS. In a demanding market, in terms of quality of services and professionalism, the competition is such that ILOGS must win the challenge of being proactive throughout the logistics chain.
