Strategic refinery simulation model for refinery operation planning and optimisation
The pace of global investment in new refinery capacity remains strong, however refiners in many regions find themselves at a disadvantage as costly crude logistics and declining demand weigh on margins. These refineries are under pressure to optimize their operations and profitability in order to compete with more lucrative and growing refining regions.
What is PetroPlan?
PetroPlan is the industry-leading refinery simulation model that enables users the ability to simulate, assess, and run scenarios to accommodate any change in facility additions, grassroots refineries, regulatory impacts, and alternate feedstocks.
Built on industry-leading refining data, trusted analysts and a library of over 300 assays, PetroPlan analyses, simulates and evaluates operational and financial characteristics of refineries, enabling you to maximise commercial advantage and ROI. Use PetroPlan for optimising refinery output and profitability based on crude and product characteristics. The model is also used to assess project investments, run scenarios on different crude mix or price decks, and perform crude valuation studies.
The simulation model offers:
Built-in optimiser to maximise net profit
Crude assay library with over 300 assays
Non-linear process sub-models
Customisable block, crude assay, stream, blender and other data
Batch analysis for multiple refineries and price scenarios
