Shell makes headway in global digitalisation of its ops with Kabal’s software

UK-headquartered energy giant Shell has advanced its digitalisation journey through a global agreement with Kabal, a provider of logistics and supply chain SaaS solutions to the energy industry.

Kabal disclosed on Thursday that its software was being used by Shell to plan and manage its offshore operations in the U.S. and Mexico (Gulf of Mexico), Norway and the UK (North Sea). However, the new deal will provide Shell affiliates around the globe with on-demand access to Kabal’s logistics management software.

Dirk Mosterman, SC Lead Digital Logistics Solutions at Shell, remarked: “At Shell, we continuously seek new technology to support our employees and operations. The transition to the Kabal SaaS platform is a leap in our digitalisation journey. It enables simplified deployment and standardisation of Shell operations around the world. This also meets the increasing demand for supply chain responsiveness, resilience, and transparency and ultimately for more efficient and sustainable operations.”

Jan Inge Pedersen, Kabal CEO, commented: “We’re proud to achieve this global contract with Shell, one of the supermajors in the global energy industry. Our partnership strengthens Kabal’s position as the leading logistics management SaaS for the energy industry. The contract also confirms the value Shell and other energy operators place on operating efficiently with minimal environmental impact. With Kabal, Shell now has full availability of our software platform that offers total control of all cargo, resources, and transport.”


Regarding Shell’s other activities, it is worth noting that the oil major made a gas discovery recently in an exploration well in the North Sea, which was spudded using a Noble-owned rig.
