Muscat: The Oman Society for Petroleum Services (Opal) recently named Fleet Management Systems & Technologies (FMS Tech) as one of seven in-vehicle monitoring systems (IVMS) suppliers for oil and gas transportation safety technology, approved in the first round.
Oil & Gas Safety Standards require multiple qualifications and approvals to be met before a company can supply to the oil and gas industry in Oman. This is due to several high-risk operations that are dangerous if not managed properly. Opal has created an advanced set of criteria for operating standards focused on health, safety and environment (HSE) and road safety.
Historically, oil and gas transportation in Oman lacked an organised set of regulations. Opal’s new standards now ensure HSE and road safety are at a national level.
FMS Tech, the major supplier of oil and gas transportation safety technology in the Middle East, was recently shortlisted for two industry accolades at the annual Logistics Middle East Awards. Both nominations were for supply chain performance optimisation: one in the energy industry, and the other in fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).
The IVMS technologies, also known as telematics, regulate and record road safety violations, speed limits, licencing, road safety training, and more. IVMS devices ensure drivers are performing safely through regular reports generated automatically and sent to managers.
