Reducing emissions during FPSO cargo tank operations: the opportunity to improve VOC calculations by using Dynamic Simulation

An FPSO is a Floating Production Storage and Offloading unit designed to produce oil and gas by processing the fluids arriving from offshore wells, usually in deep-water environments. Therefore, FPSOs have the capability to store the produced oil until a separate cargo offloads it from the FPSO tanks.

Cooling Water Networks analysis


Inprocess simulation analysis of the cooling water network helps companies to improve the performance of the plant. When this study is carried out,  the result is that bottlenecks are identified and this way, the most critical points can be addressed with optimal solutions to improve the performance of the cooling water network …

Real-Time Optimization opportunities in NGL recovery plants

Inprocess has helped this oil company to identify potential savings between $1 and $3 million per NGL train and year in one of its recovery plants, by applying optimization techniques, on top of an existing Advanced Process Control algorithm, in a three-phases project: Feasibility study, open loop adisory tool, closed-loop online optimizer. Discover how by downloading the attached document.

Minimum Design Metal Temperature determination using Dynamic Simulation

A considerable amount of equipment and piping in Oil & Gas processing plants is exposed to very low or even cryogenic temperatures during some transient events such as emergency blowdowns, depressurization after prolonged shutdowns or start-ups. Material must be selected within proper temperature ranges according to the Minimum Design Metal Temperature (MDMT).

Lifecycle Modelling: Using Simulation Models from Engineering Design to Plant Operations

Plant operators need deep training before the greenfield plant is started-up. Moreover, companies need to diminish potential operational problems related to the equipment sizing, control logic and safety systems by performing early analysis during the engineering design phases.
