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.
