Refining & Downstream
Below are key areas in refining and downstream where we can add value to your business through our expertise and experience.
A robust refinery-wide LP model is the refinery's digital twin and key to optimal refinery margin. We can provide a review and enhancements to your LP models. We also support the development of useful monitoring tools to measure LP accuracy and enable you to achieve future margin improvements.
Optimizing hydro-processing and hydrotreating units for VGO or even heavier feed is critical for any bottom of the barrel margins. We provide you with developing the most effective hydro-processor models for LP's, operation optimization, & H2 efficiency
We can combine engineering modeling and machine learning techniques to monitor foiling in exchangers. This allows for minimizing any impact due to loss of throughput or product. It will also allow you to choose optimal exchangers during turnarounds.
Reforming of Naphtha is key for gasoline or aromatics production. Modeling of these units is sophisticated, especially if you have downstream aromatics units. We can help you both simulation and LP modeling of these units
Optimizing FCC's is key to improving refinery margins. It also impacts other downstream units, as LCO hydrotreaters, gasoline and fuel oil blending, & more. We can help you with these complex units both in simulation and LP modeling.
Thermal cracking processes, such as cokers and visbreakers have significant impact refinery margins as they minimize fuel oil blending requirements. We help you model these units in LP's as well as detailed simulations.
