Petro-SIM Upstream/Midstream


Petro-SIM is more than a standalone rigorous process modelling environment. Its open platform architecture provides integration, collaboration, reporting, and web-enabled technology allowing your organisation to gain efficiencies in process modelling work processes. At the core is the Petro-SIM process simulation technology complete with rigorous, leading technology models for the upstream, midstream, and downstream refining and petrochemical hydrocarbon industries.

The Petro-SIM platform with full integration to commercial data historian and databases systems offers a central repository for project design data and access to performance-at-plant/” >plant operating data for performance monitoring. Maintaining a consistent set of design basis and operating models becomes a straight-forward process, you can store and update project model files in a version-managed database. As a result, internal and external project team members can access current data and generate custom reports against the latest model data, collaborate effectively within a distributed project team, and drive efficient project work practices.

Petro-SIM’s integration with Infochem’s Multiflash offers a leading compositional PVT simulator with advanced thermodynamics packages able to handle multiple fluid phases as well as rigorously predict and handle solid phases such as ice and hydrates within the process flowsheet. Adding FEESA Maximus’s thermal hydraulic network simulator provides Life-of-Field integrated production system models from reservoir through to the production facilities. A consistent thermodynamic basis allows all groups working on the project to collaborate effectively and efficiently. This can only be achieved using KBC’s Maximus and Petro-SIM technology along with the Multiflash common thermodynamic basis.
