Why Choose this Training Course?

In today’s modern refining environment, the use of innovative cost management practices that can accurately allocate refined intermediate and product manufacturing costs, may assist refiners to optimize their production, improve their profitability and competitiveness.

Cost management is concerned with the process of planning and controlling the budget of a project or business. Cost management can also be applicable to refinery management systems and it can be a very important part of the refinery production processes. It must be appreciated however that production costs are a synthetic index that can reflect the effectiveness of production planning and scheduling. How to successfully control and manage production costs is a complex set of issues for refineries but it can be used to monitor and control refinery unit performance.

This course will assist in creating cost structures for refinery process units and assist in allocating costs to individual refinery intermediates and finished on-specification products. Important aspect of process plant optimization is related to system energy management and energy consumption reduction. Furthermore, process monitoring that includes advanced controls and new technologies also present opportunities for refinery optimization. Additional opportunities can include Crude unit utilization with opportunity crudes of lower quality and price.

This course it will assist in examining individual process equipment such as atmospheric and vacuum distillation equipment, catalytic and thermal processes, heaters, furnaces and steam boilers, heat exchanger integration, rotating equipment efficiency including pumps and compressors. Oil refinery cost management will provide a comprehensive review of the various aspects of refining cost management, which is the cornerstone for a viable plant profitability and optimization.

What are the Goals? 

By the end of this training course, participants will be equipped with the knowledge to conduct the following activities in their refineries:

  • Determine by various techniques the cost of individual streams in the refinery and individual processes
  • Use these costs to calculate the enhancement potential for blending lower cost, on-specification products
  • Optimize refinery utility systems such as cooling water, steam and power generation
  • Apply energy saving techniques to develop energy saving projects
  • Enhance the production planning activities of the refinery via cost management
