Improving Profitability and Safety with State-of-the-Art Shell Reactor Internals
27 September 2018

Sponsor: Shell Global Solutions

Is your fixed-bed catalytic reactor facing issues such as high pressure drop or thermal maldistribution? Is the throughput of your unit bottlenecked or are you planning to process heavier, more difficult feeds? Are you seeking to improve your unit’s safety and reliability?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, a quick and simple revamp involving the installation of the 2018 generation of Shell reactor internals will help address such issues.

With technologies developed over the course of 30 years and an experienced owner/operator of process and mechanical engineers, Shell Global Solutions has provided a wide array of custom made solutions in more than 1,700 reactors all over the world. Will your reactor be our next challenge? Follow our webcast and be introduced to Shell Global Solutions reactor internals technologies and services.

Asset Excellence in Oil & Gas: Customer Success Story with Predictive Analytics
30 August 2018

Sponsor: AVEVA

Digital Transformation empowers organizations to shift from reactive maintenance to predictive maintenance (PdM) strategies. This enables front-line personnel to act before costly failures occur and maximize value throughout the entire asset lifecycle. Improving reliability, performance, and safety are among the top priorities for industrial organizations and businesses today. They are focusing efforts and resources on controlling costs and maximizing value from existing investments. PRiSM Predictive Asset Analytics helps organizations gain the highest return on critical assets by supporting predictive maintenance (PdM) programs. The PRiSM Predictive Asset Analytics solution provides early warning notification and diagnosis of equipment issues days, weeks or months before failure. This helps asset-intensive organizations reduce equipment downtime, increase reliability, and improve performance while reducing operations and maintenance expenditures. During this webinar, Ann Attaway, Program Manager at Air Liquide will provide an overview of the PRiSM implementation process, successes and lessons learned at Air Liquide.

Higher Margin with Integrated & Cost-effective Refinery Scheme
26 June 2018

Sponsor: KBR

Extracting value from refinery residues is a top priority for refiners, globally, while being compliant in a stringent regulatory atmosphere, as best reflected in the IMO’s 2020 sulfur cap on bunker fuels. 

While long residues or vacuum tower bottoms (VR or VTB) can be hydrotreated, short residues are usually converted using thermal processes, such as thermal cracking and delayed coking. However, the products from these processes need further processing to achieve transportation fuel quality products, adding to the cost of the resid upgrading schemes.

KBR’s ROSE technology is the market leading Solvent deasphalting (SDA) technology that can be combined with FCC and/or hydrocracking and has been commercially proven to meet the need for higher yields of high-quality transportation fuels at comparable operating costs and complexity of operations. 

We will present schemes using combination of ROSE with hydrocracking and an integrated solidification system which result in higher overall margin than other resid upgrading options. We will discuss economic and operating benefits of other bottom-of-the barrel schemes and commercial examples (i.e. debottleneck VDU and/or synergize with cokers), where applicable.

Achieve Operational Excellence via High-fidelity Operator Training Simulators: A Customer’s Perspective
19 June 2018

Sponsor: AVEVA

Companies struggle with operating more complex plants with fewer people responsible for more tasks. Operators run mission critical processes across multi-billion dollar businesses where missteps can be very costly in terms of safety and profitability. To increase confidence under various operating scenarios, Shell trains its operators and control system engineers on high fidelity training simulators. These simulators are based on first principle models of refinery processes and can be used to test control strategies, reduce start-up, and optimize training. Earl Wallace, Shell Canada Scotsford, will share his experiences with implementing this technology to drive operational excellence through long-term training strategies.

Improving Your Gas Processing Plant's Efficiency and Reliability through Turbomachinery Standardization
13 June 2018

Sponsor: Atlas Copco

How can your process benefit from using a centrifugal machine, or a few of them in the same cycle? Considering how flexible today’s gas processing plants have to be to accommodate changing demand, it’s essential for rotating equipment to share that flexibility. Join Atlas Copco Gas and Process as they discuss the benefits of turboexpanders and integrally geared compressors used in the hydrocarbon industries. You’ll learn about how these technologies can be further optimized to offer maximum flexibility with minimal CAPEX due to the modularity, high efficiency and superior reliability that the design of these machines provides.

Key learning objectives:
•    Understand the features of centrifugal propane refrigeration compressors
•    Compare integral-gear technology with other types of compressors and analyze its impact on process flexibility, efficiency and risks
•    Learn how integrally geared turbocompressors can fit into your gas plant process
•    See mechanisms of turboexpander optimization and what it can bring to your process.
