Asian Downstream Summit is the biggest Downstream Technology Tradeshow in Asia with a special focus on technological innovations, Industry 4.0 and digital transformation in oil & gas. Join KBC at this event where we'll be delivering a workshop and presentations on digital transformation. 

Presentation: Outlining a Digital Plant

Date: 31 October 2018, 11:30-12:30

Industry 4.0 Track 1 Digital Innovations, Manufacturing & Automation 
Chair Person: Bradley Ford, Director – Asset Optimization and Organization

Workshop: KBC Digital Readiness Assessment - KBC is the Sole Workshop Sponsor at Asian Downstream Summit 2018

Date: 1 November 2018, 11:30 - 12:30

Projects, Innovations & Energy Efficiency
Presenter: Bradley Ford, Director – Asset Optimization and Organization

This workshop will walk people through the process of identifying the gap between their organization and the leaders in the industry; in particular the characteristics behind the digital leadership and change management practices of those leading organizations when it comes to leading a Digital Transformation. To drive this analysis KBC will leverage our Digital Readiness Assessment process; and Operational Efficiency global database. We will conduct an analysis of our respective organizations to identify what are the key elements holding us back, and conclude with working through the process of change and the value on the table by comparative metrics.

Seats are limited so book your place toady. 

Presentation: Harnessing Cloud-Based Digital Twins to Transform Energy Management Performance

Date: 1 November 2018, 3:30pm

Projects, Innovations & Energy Efficiency Plenary 4
Presenter: Tim Shire, New Solution Strategy and Launch

The downstream industry in Asia faces growing energy and sustainability management challenges. Energy costs in Asia are the highest in the world, with energy typically representing over 50% of a plants operating costs. In addition environmental legislation to drive down carbon emissions is also adding a burden of regulation and taxation, which must be addressed through improved energy management systems. However, there are substantial barriers to improving performance: The downstream energy and chemicals industry have been applying energy saving approaches for many years and have already addressed much of the low-hanging fruit. Energy and process yield and reliability are intrinsically linked, and making lasting change requires changes in behavior from the top to the bottom of organizations. 

Digitalization provides new approaches to solving these problems. By applying site-wide Digital Twins of process and energy systems, it becomes possible to identify a deeper level of savings opportunities, and take the full breadth of issues into account holistically. Hosting these digital twins in the cloud connects the sites to a world of remote expertise, who can provide real-time insights, and build up the capabilities of the people at the plant. KBC have recently launched their Energy and Sustainability Co-Pilot Programme, and we explain how the new technologies, and the new ways of working that become possible are able to drive the next generation of energy saving. Co-Pilot means that energy and chemicals companies can comply with legislation, easily and quickly, with minimum time and disruption to the onsite teams, as well as generate energy cost savings in excess of 10%, through a combination of operational changes and optimum capital investment.

Tickets to the event can be booked online at the Asian Downstream Summit website.
