Refinery Stream Modeling
Upgrader Advanced Control Implementation

A major Canadian integrated oil and gas company has realized multi-million dollar benefits by implementing our Upgrader advanced process control solutions.


For over twenty years, we have provided turn-key advanced control applications and ongoing maintenance, enhancements and support for the critical operating units at this significant facility.

Our supply included model-predictive control with unit optimization, integrated soft sensors for key laboratory measurements, operator training, and a new plant historian with state-of-the-art visualizations, data analytics, electronic logbooks, and management reports.


Local benefits vary on each process unit: Typically, there is a 20-25% variability reduction in distillation specs and improved operation stability, allowing local throughput increases subject to downstream capacity.
