Whitepaper summary

Through the energy transition, refinery-integrated petrochemical complexes and crude oil to chemicals, will be more resilient toward future demand and supply-side dynamics. The incremental improvement potential with increased petrochemical integration is 1.5 to 2 $/bbl of crude processed. The value gained from effective molecular management is significant. However, the complexity of refinery-integrated petrochemical complexes, means that there is a gap in the tools needed for effective molecular management.

The latest process simulation tools address this by enabling detailed carbon number breakdown from crude assays through to blending and petrochemical units, for the whole integrated complex. The whitepaper details, through customer case studies how Petro-SIM enables identification of site-wide performance improvement opportunities, as well as giving benefit sustainment through real-time monitoring of the entire complex.

Driving flow assurance through effective KPI setting, analytics and digital twin technology

Aug 15, 2019

In the past, when oil prices were higher, upstream producers were very focused on managing their assets for maximum production volume. However, in the current and forecast business environment, there is a much greater need to manage for value. Maximum value is not always maximum flow; this can sometimes lead to value destruction. So what does managing for value mean for an upstream producer?
