Continuous Oil and Gas development is high on Fracht’s operational activity
Developments in the oil and gas sector are a welcome site to a number of logistics companies. However, a constant shift in the way business is conducted in order to stay in line with the geopolitical and regulatory requirements means new technologies need to be developed and oftentimes transported to project sites.
For Fracht teams in Poland, oil and gas is an important area in its operational activity. The company has recently responded to a request by one of its customers from the sector to deliver 150 construction elements weighing a total of over 650 tons with a volume of almost 8,000 cubic metres. The shipment included oversize elements, the heaviest weighing nearly 60 tons. The company collected over 100 loads of various dimensions and weights from construction site and transported them to the new investment site.
Speaking of the investment, Fracht noted that the demand for oil and gas is still noticeable, but the extraction is becoming more and more expensive requiring companies to invest in new technologies enabling effective extraction. Gas, on the other hand, is a raw material with increased demand, as it is positioned as a resource conducive to building the idea of a low-emission economy.
Fracht FWO Polska notes that according to the International Energy Agency’s estimates, the value of investments in the gas sector will increase to almost $10 trillion by 2040. Most of these investments will be focused on the development of the downstream segment, which will increase to $6.9 trillion over this time. This is why Fracht is seeing oil and gas as an important sector.
For the implementation of the latest project Fracht FWO Polska had to pay special attention to the time and order of loading as well as the delivery of individual elements. The entire logistical operation took just over a week. More than 100 sets with semi low-loaders and “platform” semi-trailers were used for the transport.
