Petro-SIM | Refining and Petrochemicals

Maximise facility performance and margin capture

Petro-SIM is the only proven process simulator that scales from the reactor unit to the entire facility while combining the rich DNA of process simulation with integration to best-in-class KBC and third party software to create leading edge technology that is relevant to the refining and petrochemical hydrocarbon industries. Petro-SIM provides the unique capability to model plant wide simulations from crude straight to products to the required level of granularity. Using our innovative technologies empowers you to maximise the profitability of your facility by providing you with the confidence to make knowledgeable decisions to improve your facility’s performance and drive organisational excellence.

Apply best-in-class technology to industry problems

Petro-SIM's superior fluid characterisation underpinned by proven assay synthesis technology provides a more accurate foundation for refining and petrochemical simulation models. The integration of Petro-SIM with KBC's SIM Reactor Suite, Energy Suite and other third party technologies provides a unique environment for incorporating best in class technologies to a given simulation model providing a range of flexibility to address concerns in each phase of the lifecycle of a facility, including the design or reconfiguration of that facility straight through to the operation of the facility, providing tools that enable you to improve and optimise the operation and sustain those improvements.

KBC's extensive understanding of these industries has driven Petro-SIM to not only provide rigorous core process technology advancements but to also change the simulation is used within an organisation to drive improved productivity and organisational excellence.
