KBC partners with EQUIPSYS to integrate process design modules into KBC process simulator

April 10, 2017 - KBC Advanced Technologies (KBC), a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corporation, announced an exclusive relationship with EQUIPSYS, a premier provider of process equipment design and plant monitoring software, to integrate their Petro-SIZE process design modules with KBC’s process simulator Petro-SIM. This relationship is intended to enhance the integrated Petro-SIM engineering environment for a holistic approach to equipment sizing and rating in process design and troubleshooting across the upstream oil and gas, oil refining and petrochemicals industries.

Petro-SIZE is a software application for process equipment sizing and rating to assist plant engineers and operators with daily plant troubleshooting and facility design. It includes over ninety calculation modules across many types of process equipment offerings, in particular, an optimisation engine for separation vessels within upstream oil and gas production and oil refining industries.

Petro-SIM is a steady-state and dynamic process simulation and optimisation software product for design and optimisation across the upstream oil and gas, gas processing, oil refining and petrochemicals industries. Petro-SIM’s open platform architecture promotes levels of integration and collaboration between project teams in an intelligent and user friendly environment.

For upstream oil and gas, Petro-SIM is a purpose-built simulation software that combines the DNA of process simulation and PVT fluids with unique Life of Field scenarios to ensure that facility processing capabilities meet the long term needs of the reservoir.

The inter-operability mechanism between Petro-SIM and Petro-SIZE has already been developed, tested and is available immediately to licence with Petro-SIM. The Petro-SIZE technology is also available immediately for licensing on a standalone basis from KBC.
