Analysis of operational performance to improve economic profitability.
In this context, we appraise the current refinery’s operation to highlight alternative conditions or minor modifications with significant economic returns.
Typical findings are alternative operating conditions maximising profitability, energy-saving suggestions, and longer-term plant modifications to avoid or eliminate process bottlenecks.
During the execution of the study, we collect the basic information about a production period:
Feedstock quality and quantity.
Processing scheme and alternative operating options.
Capacity and severity of processing and auxiliary units.
The yield and the quality of delivered products.
With this information, we build a model of the industrial complex to highlight the current production bottlenecks and solutions to improve profitability by increasing the yields of high-value products and reducing operative costs.
