Expert process optimisation services for oil and gas companies
In today’s rapidly changing energy market, refiners are under increasing pressure to meet production plans, improve margins and comply with ever-more stringent environmental regulations.
Emerson has helped refiners optimise their fuel, lubrication, asphalt and crude blending activities for more than 50 years by supplying solutions that make it easier for producers to safely meet demand, while lowering operating costs and helping them adapt to the latest, clean fuel standards.
Our fuel blending experts regularly work with refiners to improve their production flexibility and increase the number of right-first-time blends, in addition to providing assistance with reducing inventories and keeping unwanted downtime to a minimum.
Custody transfer and inventory management for petrochemical sites
Emerson’s user-friendly custody transfer and inventory management solutions are designed to enable refiners to connect field-related data and activities directly to decision-makers at the enterprise level.
Our data transfer and management systems enable clients to improve operational efficiency and visibility onsite, while simultaneously increasing inventory turnover and reducing safety risks, allowing them to keep up with changing customer and market demands.
Process control services for the hydrocarbons industry
Emerson has developed a range of systems to facilitate the accurate control of petrochemical processes, helping clients avoid disturbances that could potentially lead to a variety of problems such as lost production, unplanned shutdowns, increased energy consumption and negative environmental effects.
We are able to producers meet their individual operational challenges and safely optimise their petrochemical production, while maximising energy efficiency with a wide scope of solutions and process control expertise.
Performance optimisation solutions for ethylene and methanol production
Emerson is able to help manufacturers protect the safety of their assets and optimise the performance of their operations by reducing unplanned shutdowns and minimising risks, allowing them to consistently meet their production goals, ensure regulatory compliance and maximise profitability over the entire lifecycle of the project.
Our innovative technologies and automation expertise offer operators the ability to curtail process upsets and prevent unforeseen equipment failures that would otherwise impact their profit margins, while enabling the easy and precise control of energy costs during operation.
