Diverse Portfolio of Refineries Increase Efficiency

A multi-national refining operation widely uses various process models within their diverse portfolio of refineries. Each refinery is unique in their process models and user efficiency. In addition, they have a mixed combination of in-house and third-party applications.

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.
