Light tight oil formations are providing a new crude source to North America and soon to the world, with the construction of condensate splitters in the US Gulf Coast and the announcement that the US government was lifting the crude export ban.View whitepaper
The replacement of the internal combustion engine with alternatively-fueled vehicles makes for compelling political sound bites, but reality is quite different. We are far from generating enough renewable energy even to meet today’s base load electrical demand. Changes in transport fuel demand will come incrementally rather than suddenly and because the slow pace of change wont support major capital projects focus is on intelligent value chain optimization.View whitepaper
Across organizations, decision-making should be about seeking to improve performance. The challenge is that decisions comprise of different layers of factors, all on different timescales, each with different levels of uncertainty and varying degrees of impact. In the decision-making process, four key areas are being improved: data, situational awareness, analytics, foresight. New technology is advancing and interconnecting these areas for faster decisions with reduced uncertainty.View whitepaper
We have been applying a structured margin optimization methodology, taking into account process, energy and reliability interactions, for many years but now digitalization technologies offer new and disruptive solutions. This paper, presented at Gastech 18, discusses resolution of the broader process industry challenges as well as a focus on the unique LNG industry issues.View whitepaper
