Studies aimed to deepen the practical feasibility of processing modifications to improve profitability or meet new specifications.

In this framework, we model the overall refinery performance before and after the intervention to analyse the project’s feasibility from the operational and financial perspectives.   

The study scope, which depends on the specific project’s requirements, typically includes the following activities:

  • Assessment of pricing and demand scenarios for feedstock purchase and product sales.

  • Analysis of alternative processing configurations

  • Preliminary process checks to dimension the leading equipment.

  • Accurate evaluation of investment and operational costs for the designed modifications.

  • Analysis of the implementation phases.

  • Assessment of expected returns after the implementation.

  • Calculation of financial parameters (NPV, IRR).

We carry out the study with the support of well-proven proprietary software tools, which we share with the client during the study’s execution.
