ROB and OBQ
Our people have been trained to account for unmeasured Remains Onboard and Onboard Quantity.
Heated or Stratified Cargo Tanks
We take multiple temperature readings for heated tanks.
We adjust our gauge measurements around your modified vessel infrastructure.
Liquid Cargo Loss Control
Those are just a few of the factors that can impact the quantity and quality of your vessel’s cargo. Additional variables we take into consideration when measuring any fluctuations in cargo include:
- The vessel’s design, including void spaces in the structure of the ship
- Sediment and water collected during the voyage
- Slops, clingage and crude oil washing
- Transit gains due to accidental commingling of product
- Transit losses due to vapor losses, leaks, cargo burned as fuel or other mid-voyage activities
A non-negotiable component in any successful voyage is the documentation reflecting what happened and why. We provide you with a highly detailed paper trail recording facts, measurements. Upshot: you’ll understand, and be able to explain, what took place onboard your vessel.
