LOS ANGELES -- Edison Chouest Offshore (ECO), C Logistics Division is deploying the Mojix STAR system as part of an RFID initiative at its Port Fourchon, Louisiana facility. The facility serves as a logistics base for oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

Following a successful pilot of the Mojix system, the deployment to equip Port Fourchon’s C-Port and C-Port 2, an 18-slip operation, is under way. In addition, the system will be expanded to all remaining production areas of Port Fourchon as well as warehouse facilities within the Edison Chouest Offshore family of companies.

ECO says it plans to offer RFID-enabled value added services as an option to their customers.

“This RFID deployment enables improved precision, visibility, and accountability to C-Logistics services. Based on our current analysis, we expect the deployment to render greater return on our customers’ investment in services, and in addition long-term benefits of visibility to workflow and process that are expected to be significant,” says Dane Vizier, GM, Edison Chouest Offshore, C Logistics Division.

“With the RFID solution we have the ability to know exactly where an item is at all times. Storage and staging will be improved with both textual and graphical representations of locations and definitive time records. This enables us to reconcile and standardize data, which improves the existing reporting functions we provide our customers.”

Data collected by the Mojix system is passed to the C-Logistics proprietary software, Triton, a cargo and logistics application. Real time and past reporting of inventory, movement history, vendor, and customer location is provided by Triton and data is backed up and stored. Expansion is also planned to develop and incorporate documented manifests that are required for over-the-road and ocean-going vessel movements.
