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 key operating units at this major 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: typical is 20-25% variability reduction in distillation specs, improved operation stability allowing local throughput increases subject to downstream capacity.
