Five Best Practices for Refineries-Maximizing Profit Margins Through Process Engineering
Learn the five best practices in process simulation technology used by refinery experts to optimize refinery operations and maximize profits.
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).
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.

White Paper: Beyond Oil Digitalization-The Roadmap to Upstream Profitability
This paper discusses digital transformation in the oil patch. It explores how upstream industry leaders are capitalizing on the explosion of data and how, in particular, merging rigorous process models with both analytics and data visualization can help achieve a competitive advantage. It also reveals how innovations from AspenTech are helping to lead the way toward asset reliability and profitability.
Dehydration with Aspen HYSYS: Validation of the CPA Property Package
Dehydration units are often overdesigned, resulting in high capital or operating costs. In order to ensure design options meet the necessary requirements of saving capital, solvent or energy costs, thermodynamic modeling and a holistic view of operations is needed. This paper discusses the dehydration modeling technology available with Aspen HYSYS in V10 and above. Aspen HYSYS has historically employed the glycol property package for TEG. With the addition of the Cubic-Plus-Association (CPA) package in V10, Aspen HYSYS can be used to model dehydration with TEG, MEG and DEG.
Protect Profits and Prevent Margin Loss in Downstream
With downstream margins globally close to a 10-year low, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics and ExxonMobil, companies need to find new areas for improvement. Current digital solutions offer ways plants can move beyond mechanical and equipment investments to drive greater profits. Download this white paper that outlines high impact operational improvements that deliver immediate results.
Acid Gas Cleaning using Amine Solvents: Validation with Experimental and Plant Data
Learn about the underlying technology and validation results for the Acid Gas - Chemical Solvents Property Package in Aspen HYSYS used for amine solvents in Gas-Liquid Systems, such as MDEA, MEA, DEA, PZ, and PZ+MDEA.
Multiphase Pipe Flow Modeling in Aspen HYSYS
Multiphase flow through pipes is characterized by the flow regime, liquid hold-up and pressure gradient. Accurate prediction of these flow attributes is necessary for designing and maintaining pipelines and flowlines in the oil and gas industry. Aspen HYSYS provides a number of flow correlations for modeling multiphase pipe flow. To aid the user and provide a basis for comparison, the performance of correlations for different pipeline geometries, fluids, and flow regimes was analyzed. This paper discusses these analyses.
The Digital Twin and the Smart Enterprise
Across the globe, leading organizations are embracing and implementing advanced digital technologies. The digital transformation journey will change the nature of asset intensive industries, particularly the energy and chemicals businesses. In that context, digital twins — virtualized copies of physical assets and their operating behaviors — will play key roles. For the digital twins we create today, a key concept is the power of AI in providing insight and advice against the virtual data.
