Refinery Configuration Assessment

We can support companies with assessment of various refinery and petrochemical configurations upgrades to existing refineries.  It could be an evaluation of integration with a steam cracker or a new aromatics unit or it could be a bottom of the barrel upgrade.

Such assessments typically involve a yield based material balance assessment of new process units as well as modifications to existing process units via a LP model.  Further estimation of capital expense and lifycycle cost of the new and modified process units via a techno-economic model is generally required.

Through tools such as Aspen PIMS or SPIRAL Plan, Aspen Process Economic Analyzer, we can support such assessment
