Process modeling tool for conceptual design and performance improvement of petroleum and oil & gas processes
Aspen HYSYS is the market-leading process modeling tool with a proven track record of providing substantial economic benefits throughout the process engineering lifecycle. It brings the power of process simulation to the engineering desktop, enabling companies to bring new plants and designs to market faster and more efficiently at a higher return on investment.
Aspen HYSYS Benefits Aspen HYSYS is a proven, industry-standard solution with over twenty years of use in the field. Customers have recognized and reported: • $15 million per year in incremental profitability from process optimization • $10 million per year in capital savings resulting from improved designs • $1 million per year of reduced engineering cost
The Challenge: Adapting to Change, Optimizing Plant Performance
Across the process industries, companies are challenged with global economic growth, constantly changing market conditions, and pressure to reduce time-to-market. As the cost of crude oil and energy continues to escalate, oil & gas producers, refiners, and E&C firms must creatively reduce capital and operating costs and increase engineering efficiency—all in an effort to maximize plant performance and profitability.
The AspenTech Solution: Better Simulation Streamlines Engineering
Fundamental to improving performance of the plant or enterprise, or even the extended supply chain, is an accurate representation of the basic processes. Companies need a solution that enables them to gather that information and build the models required to optimize enterprise performance. Aspen HYSYS provides the solution to meet this need, solving the critical engineering and operating problems that arise throughout the plant lifecycle. The process simulation capabilities of Aspen HYSYS enable engineers to rapidly evaluate the safest and most profitable designs through quick creation of interactive models for “what-if” studies and sensitivity analysis. These models can be leveraged throughout the plant lifecycle—from conceptual to detailed designs, rating, and optimization—significantly reducing engineering costs and enabling better operating decisions. Other benefits include: • Improve engineering productivity • Ensure accuracy and timeliness of engineering designs • Provide engineering support to plant operations • Support EHS policies and regulatory compliance • Integrate with other aspenONE® Engineering solutions to provide a common engineering workflow for the refining, E&P, and E&C industries
