Simulation Technology

Optimize design, operations, and management of the production and processing facilities to maximize profits, reduce risks, improve energy efficiency, and reduce carbon footprint. The KBC simulation software provides an integrated modeling and simulation platform to rigorously represent the entire producing and processing asset in full detail, allowing engineers of different disciplines to make informed decisions faster and more effectively.

A Integrated Process, Production and Energy Digital Twin

The difficulties of accurately modeling an asset may induce the adoption of excessive design margins and inadequate operational strategies, affecting the economics of the project. This causes inefficiencies and may have catastrophic consequences when risks are not evaluated holistically and the mitigation strategy is not selected appropriately.

The KBC modeling suite provides an integrated software platform that can accurately represent the facilities across processes and different verticals, to provide a full-stream process and production modeling digital twin with an appropriate level of detail with consistent and rigorous fluid modeling. This enables engineers from different disciplines to obtain valuable insights, from offshore platform and subsea production and processing, to refinery and petrochemical planning and operations and asset management. This allows optimal design and management of the facilities to maximize profitability and reduce risks and emissions.
