The challenge

The operator wanted to improve efficiency by establishing a common operating model across all their refineries for process monitoring, unit troubleshooting, project development, what-if analysis, and commercial tool updating and assurance.


Using a multi-phased approach, KBC implemented the Petro-SIM simulation platform across all their refineries.

The results

Each refinery has a comprehensive standard suite of models for collaborative sharing allowing the model resource team to shift their focus to creating additional value.
