Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production, Ltd. has recently been named winner at the Thailand Energy Awards 2018. The award ceremony has been organized by the Ministry of Energy to recognize companies and government agencies with outstanding energy conservation and renewable energy development projects. Chevron is the only petroleum exploration and production company awarded and honored at the event, which received a total of 268 submissions.

Chevron Thailand has been granted an award for outstanding energy conservation in the transport category for its environmentally friendly and energy-efficient supply vessel transport solution. Pairoj Kaweeyanun, Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production president, represented the company in receiving the award from Air Chief Marshal Prajin Juntong, Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Minister.

Chevron Thailand employs technology to maximize the use of vessels and related resources. This includes iMarine, an application that consolidates real-time vessel position and vessel plan as well as demonstrates visualized route for marine control to monitor and manage vessels routes, and Real Time Fuel Monitoring System (RFMS) which is used to monitor fuel consumption of vessels in the fleet and assess fuel efficiency. The RFMS, which serves to conserve energy and protect the environment, helped reduce the use of diesel in 2016 by 4.6 million liters, saving approximately 96 million baht.

Pairoj said “We are proud and honored to be awarded this year’s Thailand Energy Award. Chevron has operated in Thailand for over 55 years with systematic management of safety, health and environment to achieve world-class performance. We continually develop and adopt innovative technologies to enhance our operations. We are committed to leveraging our best practices and newest innovations to tackle increasing challenges of petroleum operations in the Gulf of Thailand to ensure a secure source of energy for Thailand now and always.”
