Many refineries and petrochemical plants worldwide are altering their turnaround schedules as a means of reducing COVID-19 impact. However, there is critical work that cannot be postponed without jeopardizing assets’ loss of “license to operate”. In this whitepaper we pose five key questions for Turnarounds during COVID 19.View whitepaper
ENAP have utilized VM-PA software and improved its decision making in areas including refinery optimization and production planning. Read how the Chilean state-owned petroleum company engaged KBC to give them an unique, reliable, and auditable platform, with daily volume/mass balances for tanks/process unit balances. This has improved production, refining, loading, and reduced apparent or potentially real losses.View whitepaper
Achieving autonomous operations is all about empowering the plant to run, learn, adapt and thrive in tomorrow’s environment. Dynamic real-time optimization gives a fast automated response based on the actual changes in raw material properties, product demand, and operating conditions.View whitepaper
