An Integrated Approach to Pipeline Modeling in a Gathering and Production System
Learn how you can eliminate the need to employ separate third-party tools for pipeline hydraulics by modeling the entire gathering and production system (be it offshore, onshore, topside, etc.) within one tool. Using this new pipeline hydraulics modeling capability, you can optimize the design from a capital and energy perspective, and also ensure the overall safety of the system.
Capturing APC Benefits from Secondary Units
Why APC should be implemented on secondary units. Includes sections on environmental emissions control, fuel gas networks control and optimization, sulphur complex control and steam networks control.
A Study of Terrain-Induced Slugging in Pipelines Using Aspen Hydraulics Within Aspen HYSYS Upstream
Terrain-induced slugging can cause damage to processing equipment, but predicting slug volumes for sizing slugcatchers is challenging. Learn how Aspen HYSYS can be used to predict slug volumes due to terrain-induced slugging.
Tailoring Your Competitive Advantage - Calibrate Aspen Capital Cost Estimator to Fit Your Business
Understand the full capabilities of ACCE. Calibration will improve bid accuracy by adjusting costs to those mimicing the users. For those that have just started using ACCE or those that want to do Class 3 estimates for both Owner Operator and E&C.
7 Secrets to a Well-Run Plant (for Plant Managers)
In this white paper, plant managers, engineers and supervisors can learn the different ways simulations models can be used throughout the lifecycle of their plant. It focuses on seven areas you can use process simulation software (like Aspen Plus or Aspen HYSYS) for troubleshooting, process monitoring, and real time performance monitoring or real time optimization (RTO).
The Engineer Inside the System: Accurate Economic Evaluation Across the Capital Project Lifecycle
Ron Beck speaks to the power of a model based estimating system providing insight to its attributes like reusable templates and saleable features. How does ACCE differ from my proprietary Excel-based spreadsheets?
Enabling Better Project Outcomes: Six Tips for Faster, More Accurate Cost Estimates
Six tips are offered that speak to the strengths of ACCE: Eliminated manual tasks, automates repeated tasks, handles change management, leverages historical content and starts the estimating process leveraging conceptual engineering.
Right Details at the Right Time
When delivering an estimate on time and on budget, learn why it is important to focus on the components that matter most.
Streamlining Projects with a Modular Approach
This article published in Business Standard [India], by Sunil Patel and Ron Beck, describes how E&Cs can gain a competitive advantage, achieving lower design costs (CAPEX) for clients through modular design; and using aspenONE engineering for design templates.
Benchmarking Organizations During Lean Times
