o9's Supply Chain Solutions Use-Cases for Oil & Gas Companies

In this video, we will discuss how o9 Solutions is revolutionizing end-to-end demand, supply, inventory, transportation, and commercial planning. We will explore the following topics:
- How o9 uses graph-based technology to create a digital twin of the colonial pipeline?
- How o9 uses AI and machine learning to sense and predict demand?
- How o9 can help you ensure that supply is delivered and demand is supplied in the most cost-efficient way possible?
- How o9 can help you model future events and situations?
- How o9 can help you identify excess supply and build additional terminals or tanks?
- How o9 can help you find alternative sources of supply?

o9 Solutions is a platform that uses graph-based technology, AI, and machine learning to revolutionize end-to-end demand, supply, inventory, transportation, and commercial planning. The platform can help you sense and predict demand, model future events and situations, identify excess supply, and find alternative sources of supply.

For example, o9 can help you create a digital twin of the colonial pipeline. This digital twin can be used to sense and predict demand at each node along the pipeline. This information can be used to ensure that supply is delivered and demand is supplied in the most cost-efficient way possible.

o9 can also help you model future events and situations. For example, you could use o9 to model the final of the national sports league or a large cultural festival. This would allow you to ensure that there is sufficient supply in place to meet demand.

o9 can also help you identify excess supply and build additional terminals or tanks. For example, o9 could identify that a certain product grade in Belgium will become inactive. The platform would then identify alternative sources of supply, such as France or Singapore.

If you are looking for a platform that can help you revolutionize end-to-end demand, supply, inventory, transportation, and commercial planning, then o9 is the platform for you.

At o9 Solutions, we are revolutionizing end to end demand, supply, inventory, transportation, and commercial planning. Let's have a look at the fuels value chain network. Starting with crude oil is extracted and transported to refineries.

Crude oil is then refined with the resulting product passing through different of transport and terminals before arriving at the customer location.

Here's an example to help show O9's approach to next gen supply planning and operations transformation.

Using our graph based technology, we create a digital twin of the colonial pipeline.

By using our next gen AI machine learning platform, o9 will sense and predict demand at each node along the pipeline. We can look closely at regions, terminals, and even tanks to predict what in tory might be needed at each terminal based on future demand.

This ensures that supply is delivered and demand is supplied in the most cost efficient way possible. Future events can be added to the horizon to ensure sufficient supply is in place, like the final of the national sports league or a large cultural festival that draw in lots of people in a specific period of time. Once the event has been added, our AI power technology processes all variables before suggesting a plan of action.

Certain products might be alerted to planners who can then run scenarios before approving a plan.

Other situations can also be modeled on the platform.

Let's say that the water level of the Mississippi is rising due to flooding in the Midwest. Which consequently removes the barge of operation as a mode of transport.

The platform quickly recalculates a rail route along with any additional costs and sends an alert to the planning team to make the approval.

The o9 platform can also show locations where third party terminals are being used to deliver difficult to supply demand.

Excess supply is then identified by the platform and suggestions are made to build additional terminals or tanks.

The o9 platform has identified that a certain product grade in Belgium will become inactive.

The platform identified this inactivity by using web scraping, which essentially means that the platform was able to scan online news articles to spot external factors that might the supply chain. Once this product has become inactive, alternative sources are identified.

France might be the cheapest but the platform has deemed Singapore as the most effective way to satisfy demand if shipped by vessel.
