Modern planning models need to satisfy 2 complementary objectives
• Enabling the user to run a large number of cases in order to quickly evaluate various crude oils available in the market, under combinations of price and demand scenarios, in order to make more robust decisions under uncertainty
• Allowing a short-term perspective in which refinery planning is viewed as a preparation step to refinery scheduling …
Against a background of structural overcapacity, oil refineries have seen their margins shrink. Because of this, refineries today need to reinvent themselves to remain cost-effective.
Among the various issues to be addressed are the agility and performance of processes for crude oil planning and scheduling. What parameters should refineries optimize in order to increase their profitability?
Hamid CHEHADE, General Manager of Princeps, will give a presentation about optimization of several process units during the simulation of a scheduling model within flowers. This approach leverages the integration of Princeps LP and flowers scheduling within the same platform and using… Read more
