March 31, 2011 - Invensys Operations Management implemented its SimSci-Esscor ROMeo optimization software solution for China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), Jilin Petrochemical Company, northeast China’s largest integrated refining and petrochemical production facility. Invensys provided its ROMeo process optimization software and consulting services, enabling CNPC to respond in real time to changes in feedstock variation, process conditions and utilities prices to achieve sustainable energy savings. The company’s advanced application technology, including off-line operational analysis and on-line plant modeling for ethylene production, also allowed CNPC to study and validate the feasibility of various energy-saving strategies and the key parameters impacting energy saving before implementation. The Invensys optimization solution was applied to the entire ethylene complex, including 10 cracking furnaces, quenching, compression, cracking and separation equipment across CNPC’s 700,000 tons-per-year ethylene production unit. The solution helped drive sustained reductions in the refinery’s energy consumption by five percent. “CNPC is devoted to reducing our worldwide carbon emissions, and one of the best approaches is to invest in technology that can maximize our energy efficiency,” said Liu Hongji, deputy factory director, CNPC Jilin Petrochemical Co. “After careful market research and assessment, we chose Invensys Operations Management’s ROMeo optimization software to help us save energy, improve visibility into our operations and, ultimately, drive productivity. The results prove that the implementation of the ROMeo solution has reduced the energy consumption of our ethylene production unit and improved the effectiveness of the plant on the whole.” “We are pleased that CNPC Jilin Petrochemical Co. selected Invensys to be their strategic partner to help them improve their energy efficiency,” said Ravi Gopinath, president, Invensys Operations Management, Asia Pacific. “Our advanced ROMeo optimization technology, part of our operations management suite of solutions and a key component of our Enterprise Control System, has been successfully applied in refineries, chemical plants, and oil and gas companies around the world because it delivers strong return on investment and helps our clients achieve productivity excellence. Our operations management applications, including the ROMeo solution, can help CNPC and other clients become more environmentally friendly as they improve the energy efficiency of their production and overall operations.” About Invensys Operations Management Invensys Operations Management, a division of Invensys plc, is a leading provider of automation and information technology, systems, software solutions, services and consulting to the global manufacturing and infrastructure industries.
