Petroproduccion Selects Fleet Management Solutions® (FMS) GPS and All-Satellite Tracking to Improve Operations and Safety

Enhanced Spanish Fleet Director Global Supports Major Latin America Expansion for FMS at PetroEcuador.

SAN LUIS OBISPO, California, March 3, 2009 – Petroproduccion is a subsidiary of the state-owned PetroEcuador. Quality, safety and operations integrity are of critical importance. Production, maintenance, and engineering teams travel throughout remote and hazardous regions to service and support production facilities. Worker protection and immediate alert in the case of emergency is essential.

Petroproduccion chose Fleet Management Solutions (FMS) for their reputation in the Oil and Gas industry and for being a global supplier of GPS Mobile Resource Management tools using the Iridium Satellite, LLC communications network. FMS Fleet Director Global enables Petroproduccion to optimize use of its fleet resources and insure the integrity of equipment and site maintenance. In addition, fuel efficiency, worker safety and improved vendor payment planning were reasons to deploy the FMS all-satellite system in rolling assets.

“FMS was the only entity operating in our region that could deliver all the features we needed to implement our efficiency and security programs,” said Roland Mariach, Sr. Engineer for Infrastructure and Networking. “We expect to see payback on our investment in less than one year. Local support in Ecuador demonstrates FMS commitment and is critical to our success.”

The recently enhanced Spanish version of Fleet Director Global expands support for existing Latin America clients and provides new features to accommodate the full-scale deployment needs of Petroproduccion. Combined with real-time satellite communication, vehicle data and emergency calls from teams are processed by FMS and delivered within seconds.

“With assets supported in more than 75 countries, on six continents, FMS provides global coverage for multi-national companies focused on safety, security, misuse of property and increased efficiency while operating in remote and rugged regions of the world,” said Cliff Henley, FMS CEO. “FMS provides the best solution for real-time tracking of mobile assets using all-satellite communications to provide alerts and reports, insuring continuous awareness of vehicles and personnel.”

Complete location understanding in the jungle, desert, tundra and other remote locations with exception reporting improves the management of fleet operations. Increased ability to insure personnel safety and the most effective use of company assets improves the bottom line and provides rapid return on FMS investment.
