Cost saving opportunities in fuel oil utilities

The adoption of various cost optimization levers helps buyers of fuel oil utilities realize cost savings and achieve category management and value benefits (including the reduction in procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the fuel oil utilities market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services

Adoption of technology saving aspects

Oil explorers use seismic surveys to produce detailed images of the rock types and their location beneath the surface of the earth. Explorers use this information to determine the location and size of oil reservoirs.

3D seismic techniques help suppliers to locate reserves that were previously missed by less sophisticated techniques. Also, this technique gives scientists better information regarding the subsurface before drilling.

Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects

Buyers should list down the quantity, grade, and variety of fuel oils that is needed from fuel oil suppliers. Buyers should assess the economic and political conditions of the suppliers' location since it may affect the production and supply of fuel oil.

Buyers must ensure that suppliers adhere to their committed delivery time and that they implement measures that can minimize turn-around-time for buyers' operation. Buyers should assess countries with low operating costs (local commodity costs, labor charges) as an alternative sourcing destination.

Bundling of services saving aspects

Buyers prefer to engage with fuel oil suppliers that can provide a continuous supply of fuel oil through safe transport systems (tankers, railroads, or pipelines) during the term agreed on in the SLA. Suppliers should ensure that right quantity (bpd or tanks per day) of fuel oil is delivered to buyers on a daily basis.
