Energy and Environmental Sustainability Initiatives

Global warming, supply chains disrupted by horrific storms, energy and environmental sustainability, ISO 50001, CO2 - greenhouse gas emission management, Superior Energy Performance and water management are among the topics that are taking on strategic significance at hydrocarbon processing companies. While there is a need for innovative policies and processes, it is prudent to assure that any investment results in the desired outcome and that a reasonable ROI is achieved.

Repsol, the first refiner to become ISO 50001 certified, uses Visual MESA at their refineries in Spain. Super major oil companies in America have deployed Visual MESA at many refineries, some of which are operated as a close-loop economic optimizer (operator action is not required in order to accrue benefits).

Decades of success with top companies worldwide. The MESA energy management technology had its origin in 1981 and became an energy optimizer in 1989 at Mobil. Rigorous combustion models were added to help Repsol deal with an aggressive carbon tax in Spain. Our technology continues evolving to meet the ever changing global business challenges.

CO2 and other Greenhouse Gas Emission Optimization

CO2 emissions are predominantly produced by the utility systems. Consequently, it is best to model emissions and energy in a singular system. Any attempt to reduce the costs from the utility side should be based on the appropriate utility system models and a compositional fuel representation to allow combustion-based Carbon calculations. Solving and optimizing the energy and carbon balances together including constraints is best operational practice. Full Story »
