Fuel Oil Utilities - Category Spend Analysis

According to SpendEdge analysts, one of the key growth contributors for the global fuel oil utilities supply market is the rising use of water to increase pressure in oil fields. Water injection or water flooding is commonly used as secondary oil recovery method. The level of effectiveness depends on the ratio of oil-water mobility and geology of the oil reservoir (water/oil/rock characteristics in terms of wettability, residual oil saturation to waterflooding, oil relative permeability).

 

Fuel Oil Utilities – Procurement Best Practices

Buyers should assess the economic and political conditions of the suppliers' location since it may affect the production and supply of fuel oil. Buyers should assess the modes of transportation for fuel oil that is available from suppliers' location as it can affect their operations due to delay in delivery.

 

Fuel Oil Utilities - Procurement Challenges

Based on the analysis in this report, a major procurement pain point experienced by the buyers is the difficulties in ensuring on-time delivery of fuel oil from suppliers due to the un-optimized supply chain of the latter. SpendEdge’s procurement specialists predict that the buyers must engage with suppliers that have vertically integrated supply chain and can provide real-time tracking of fuel oil during its transit through pipelines, tankers, or railroads.
