Optimize total cost and ownership value of process simulation models in Oil & Gas and Chemical industries with Petro-SIM

Petro-SIM is one ‘One Model, Many Uses’, with application across design, debottlenecking, operations, maintenance, and supply chain optimization activities. It enables transfer of information from the engineering design phase of projects into usable data-driven insights for daily operations.

This allows project developers and operators across a variety of sectors to enhance the value and extend the life of their simulation models:

  • Upstream production systems, linked to the reservoir model, including wells, chokes, flowlines and all processing and power generation equipment, with common thermodynamics, fluid characterization and electrolytic chemistry throughout.
  • LNG liquefaction process and utilities systems, including wells, chokes and pipelines through gathering systems, separation, acid gas removal and dehydration (pretreatment systems), main cryogenic heat exchanger(s) and storage facilities.
  • Oil Refining and Petrochemical site-wide process and utilities systems, including crude compatibility through distillation, upgrading reactors and catalytic convertors, hydrotreating and cracking, blending facilities, olefins and aromatics.
  • Ammonia site-wide process and utilities systems, including desulfurization, reforming, synthesis and separation, with consistent thermodynamics and electrolytic chemistry throughout.

We're proud to have won the Best Digital Twin Technology category with our Petro-SIM Digital Twin for Unit Performance Monitoring Solution in the Hydrocarbon Processing 2020 Awards.

One Model, Many Uses

Models built using Petro-SIM can be used to validate licensor designs and be kept up to date by design or operations engineers, or be automatically updated when linked with an asset’s real time plant information management system. Once operationalized with real-time production data, the simulation models become powerful digital twins delivering real-time insight for enhanced safety, reliability and profitability. One Model, Many Uses’ is truly realized.
