Refinery Improves Business and Operations

A European operator refines crude oil for two different owners that require separate accounting. They track ownership across the entire process from the crude oil reception, through the refining process up to the tankage, and final product shipping for accounting purposes.

The Challenge

Limitations in client’s accounting systems required they run individual campaigns for each of the owners separately. When possible, they even kept separate dedicated tanks. The process was inefficient and unsustainable. The ability to blend the crudes together would maximize yields and increase production efficiency.


The company chose Visual MESA® Production Accounting system due to its versatility. It was able to help with data reconciliation, oil loss reduction initiatives, and composition tracking.

The Results

Visual MESA Production Accounting increased productivity, saved time, reduced errors, and increased the operator’s efficiency. Now the operator can maximize yields by blending crudes.
