In the cutthroat international refining and marketing industry, a major player found itself navigating the uncharted waters of Canada’s newly instated clean fuel regulations. The company’s pressing need for a robust and dependable system for compliance with data reporting mandates was evident. This system was not a luxury but a necessity, vitally important for preserving their unique regulatory data and efficiently managing daily report submissions.
The potential pitfalls of non-compliance
Before the implementation of the Enverus Trading and Risk solution, the company trudged through a complex and inefficient data management process. Their day revolved around manual data extraction, a time-consuming and error-prone method. The lack of a centralized system led to information silos, hampering intra-departmental collaboration and slowing down workflows.
Without a sophisticated, integrated solution, this company could have faced formidable challenges in coming to terms with these new regulatory mandates. They ran the risk of:
- Violating Canada’s stringent clean fuel regulations, which mandate daily report submissions
- Facing severe legal ramifications, including substantial fines and penalties
- Suffering from inefficient workflows and inflated operational costs due to the lack of a centralized, adept data management system
- Compromising the reliability of regulatory reporting due to error-prone manual data extraction and handling procedure
- Experiencing interruptions to regulatory compliance due to delays in the implementation of a company-wide system
