The oil refining process is one of the most complex processes in today’s industry, as it incorporates catalyst systems, complex reactor designs, sophisticated computer control hardware and software, and advanced safety and environmental controls.
A typical medium-size refinery has hundreds of pumps, heat exchangers and drums; dozens of furnaces, compressors, and high temperature/high pressure reactors; and thousands of control loops and associated computer control technologies. In order to optimize these complex systems and their interactions approach to single point or single system optimizing cannot work as effectively as we hope, as the refinery has to be considered as a system, rather than connection of its parts. Here is where the multi-method simulation comes to play an important part, as we can use Discrete Event, Agent Based and System Dynamics simulation to incorporate all the refinery systems into one and be able to have the outputs from the system, as well as its components, rather than just having an output from one of the components.

This Coventry Academy training course is designed for all professionals working in the field of data analysis, oil and gas exploration, geology and reservoir modelling and will greatly benefit:
This Coventry Academy training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes presentation of theoretical concepts, video lectures and many exercises that will be done through the guided work of the delegates themselves. The delegates will use free Personal Learning Edition AnyLogic software to create models and define and select statistics.
