Topnir™’s innovative solutions provide accurate predictions of crude oils (neat and in mixture) and gives in real time, a multiple list of crude properties such as:
In doing so, Topnir allows both feed-forward and feed-back Process Control strategies. Feed-forward strategy during CDU feed changes allow Advanced Process Control (APC) to achieve new operational targets quickly and better tracking crude mixture in feed tanks.
The benefits from crude analysis are a function of the economics, but the reduction of feed transitions time can yield a magnitude of gains, keeping the distillation unit close to the optimum set of cut points and throughput.
Topnir technology solution is a turn-key system including the FTIR-NIR analyzer with sampling system and all other hardware ancillaries, software and modeling technology as well as associated site services that enables the immediate prediction of Crude properties to feed the Planning Linear Program and scheduler with accurate data and is the solution to output a realistic production forecast.
The Topnir crude tool is used both in Upstream and Downstream allowing real time measurements and delivering such as:
Topnir solutions lead to accurate process control operations and valuable process optimization states that maximize benefits for the End User.
With the Topnir Solution you can expect Real-time measurement of the crude blend quality leading to operate closer to the constraint limits which leads to an Immediate Increase in Profitability in the range of 3 to 10 MSD / year Savings for a typical 150 Kbpd Refinery.
