Oil refinery optimization
Safely unlock refinery performance and efficiency with cutting edge measurement and automation
Oil refinery optimization to meet modern market and regulatory demands poses significant challenges for today’s oil industry. Environmental standards render new projects more costly and complex. All operations must reduce air pollution emissions (NOx), meaning costly upgrades to existing installations. Low sulfur fuel demand is placing a premium on the hydrogen necessary in its production. Competitive pressures demand high performance with maximum safety and production flexibility.
