Mechanical Integrity in the Era of Analytics
20 April 2021

Sponsor: GE

As investment in analytics continues to increase year after year, one function that has remained relatively status que from leveraging new techniques is the mechanical integrity function. While 87% of oil and gas companies have invested in analytics – 68% of companies are still using homegrown software or no solution at all for asset integrity management. While the objectives of avoiding loss of containment, demonstrating compliance, and ensuring high availability units hasn’t changed new dynamics could be putting your program at risk. 

In this session we will discuss:

  • Emerging trends and factors that could be putting mechanical integrity programs at risk
  • A programmatic and technology framework to streamline KPI’s and work processes
  • How analytics can be embedded in Mechanical Integrity software and work processes to advance the objectives of compliance, containment, and high availability plants

Reducing the Green Premium - Technology Enablers to Accelerate Hydrogen and Carbon Capture Development
14 April 2021

Sponsor: AspenTech

Hydrogen and carbon capture have become focal points as energy and chemical companies look to reduce emissions and achieve net-zero carbon targets. But what’s the best approach?

Please join Hydrocarbon Processing Executive Editor Adrienne Blume and AspenTech Industry Expert Ron Beck as they discuss how new digital tools integrated with existing technology give you a competitive edge to reduce your carbon footprint while greatly advancing your overall sustainability efforts. Learn how new innovations enable you to:

  • Combine process, AI and risk modeling to drive optioneering, innovation and economics
  • Scale rapidly from demonstration plants to multiple industrial facilities
  • Integrate systems risk and energy modeling into existing assets
  • Apply advanced analytics and modeling to ensure operability of new technologies

In addition, customer case studies will be shared to demonstrate how modeling has been applied in support of carbon capture, green and blue hydrogen, and fuel cells.

There will be a Q&A session following the event. We encourage you to join the conversation by submitting questions when registering.
