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.
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.

Benchmarking Organizations During Lean Times
How do contractors and owners manage risk in today’s environment? There is intense pressure to understand estimating uncertainty and deliver better designs and lower bids. By reading this white paper you'll understand new ways to deliver bids faster and increase transparency with respect to estimate risk and uncertainty.
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.
