SIMRAF is a flexible, powerful, easy-to-use technical-economic simulator/optimiser for the Oil Industry (LP tool).

It can support different tasks, from strategic planning to operation scheduling, with the capability to handle multi-period and multi-refinery problems

The connection with the feedstock characterisation database and the availability of the plant simulation library allows for quickly representing complex schemes with good adherence to the actual operating performance.

Managers can operate directly without data processing experts’ help through an intuitive object-oriented user interface.
Optimisation reports are self-explanatory and intuitive.

This tool can be used for the following tasks:

  • Refinery Configuration and investment studies

  • Modelling alternative production scenarios

  • Long-term and Mid-term Refinery Planning

  • Multi-Period, Multi-Refinery Models

  • Crude Ranking

  • Short-term optimised refinery scheduling

  • Polymer Production Scheduling

  • Production yields monitoring and performance benchmarking

  • Consumption and Losses evaluation

  • Refinery mass and heat balance assessment
