Real Time Optimizations for Complex Operations
5 October 2023

Sponsored by: Honeywell UOP

Digital Services Ecosystem is the key to Customer Success: In this era of Digitalization and Software, technology companies like Honeywell UOP stand to drive better differentiation and can solve complex customer problems by creating a Digital Ecosystem. Honeywell UOP, with its extensive knowledge of the process, has developed complex analytics that can predict plant performance, has a world-class training program, and have some of the industry-leading Service personnel helping customers with their problems. Still, an Ecosystem that brings all of these offerings together that a customer can seamlessly work through has a value vastly greater than the sum of the individual components. This webinar will focus on how these individual solutions can bring value to a customer and, at the same time, how an integrated approach can exponentially increase the value to the customer.

How to get more productive time with data-driven TAR planning
28 September 2023

Sponsored by: Cognite

Time is the one, universal, finite resource that refineries can’t increase. With a hard limit of 24 hours in a day, how can operators spend time more productively?

Turnarounds are one of the largest offenders in stealing productive time, with around 50% of shutdown projects going over budget and schedule. Smarter upfront planning can help operators get back this precious resource, but doing this well remains challenging and inefficient. Today, TAR planners still face disjointed processes due to siloed information, lots of manual work, and difficulty collaborating across teams.

In this webinar, Cognite experts will discuss how refineries can claim back more time - their most precious resource - with smarter data-driven TAR planning processes. Using real-world examples and case studies, we will talk about the obvious and hidden ways that turnarounds steal time from your organization, and how to utilize new data contextualization solutions to claim that time back, year round.

Accelerate the Growth of the Hydrogen Economy Featuring the US Hydrogen Alliance
19 September 2023

Sponsored by: AspenTech

The hydrogen economy has been gaining momentum in North America for the past two years, and this has only accelerated as the U.S. Department of Energy begins to implement the incentives provided in the recent IRA legislation.

Attend this webinar to get an update on the regulatory and investment landscape from Roxana Bekemohammadi, Founder and Executive Director of the US Hydrogen Alliance. Joining her will be Lee Nichols, VP of Content and Editor-in-Chief from Hydrocarbon Processing and Ron Beck, Senior Solution Marketing Director from AspenTech.

Some of the timely topics that will be covered include:

  • Current insights into hydrogen’s regulatory and investment landscape
  • The biggest opportunities found in the hydrogen economy
  • How digitalization increases feasibility of the green premium on hydrogen
  • Ways to deploy and scale commercialization of hydrogen

Learn how to optimize your hydrogen projects for maximum value. A Q&A session will follow so we encourage you to come prepared with questions.

Accelerating Decarbonization: 3 Actions You Can Take to Make an Impact Now
12 September 2023

Sponsored by: Swagelok

Emissions reduction is at the forefront of many companies’ environmental, social, and governance (ESG) commitments. As oil and gas facility owners reach agreements with governing bodies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to curtail emissions, now is the time to understand how to capitalize on “easy wins” for emissions reduction so you can make necessary changes to your supply chain, specifications, and upgrade plans. Learning to control fugitive emissions is a good place to start, as these leaks not only threaten regulatory compliance, but can negatively impact your company’s profitability if left unchecked. 

Join us on September 12 to grow your knowledge in this important area. In a free webinar, we’ll cover:

  • Establishing a Low-E protocol for components, regardless of piping or tubing, focusing on API 641/624, ISO-15848-1, and EPA Method 21
  • Standardizing training for employees and contractors per IOGP, which will help increase safety, reduce leaks, and increase reliability of small bore systems
  • Auditing your utility systems and equipment to find efficiencies, focusing on boiler efficiencies to reduce base load

How Integrating OCM Boosts Steam Cracker Output with a Smaller Carbon Footprint
8 August 2023

Sponsored by: Lummus Technology

Lowering the carbon footprint of steam crackers through efficiency upgrades and alternate fuels results in excess off-gas. Burning this gas for fuel releases more COto the atmosphere. This webcast discusses how integrating an oxidative coupling of methane (OCM) process into a steam cracker turns this excess off-gas into a feedstock for greater ethylene production. In addition, the exothermic OCM process generates heat that can feed the highly endothermic steam cracker—lowering the cracker’s firing duty to increase ethylene yields further while lowering CO2 emissions.

This webcast will also cover:

  • An overview of the OCM process including recent updates
  • Integration concepts for both grassroots and revamp steam crackers
  • Additional off-gas integration opportunities and feedstocks
  • Running OCM in a stand-alone mode using natural gas and gas liquids as feedstock
