The 2018 Advanced Process Modeling (APM) Forum will take place in The Westin Houston Downtown, Houston on October 10-11, 2018.

The Forum will focus on the application of high-fidelity predictive process modeling and optimization to create sustainable value in the Chemicals, Petrochemicals, Refining and Oil & Gas sectors. It is aimed at users of PSE’s gPROMS technology, as well as others who are interested in finding out more about APM technology and its application.

Content & focus

The two-day event will include presentations on the many recent and forthcoming developments in gPROMS technology, as well as application experiences from customers such as ExxonMobil and Praxair.

Key elements of PSE’s recent developments are aimed at the ability to leverage investment in models to create value in different ways across the process lifecycle. Examples that will be covered are:

  • Delivery of models via web-based interfaces to ‘non-modeling’ users across the organization, such as laboratory analytics, operations or purchasing.
  • New developments, in particular the gPROMS Digital Applications Platform, that make it possible to deliver high-fidelity models online for monitoring, forecasting, run length prediction, optimization and general decision support for operations.
  • Global System Analysis techniques that allow users to systematically explore the decision space and perform risk management using hundreds or thousands of automated executions.
  • New facilities for integrating data with models for systematic model validation, as part of integrated design activities.
  • High-performance computing (HPC) capabilities that provide the solution capacity to underpin these activities.

In addition, PSE CEO Costas Pantelides will describe PSE’s developments and directions for next-generation modelling technology including gSAFT, PSE’s advanced thermodynamic properties technology, and the work currently underway in hybrid modelling.

These powerful gPROMS technologies will be presented in the context of their impact on two broad themes – the hot topic of digital process operations for olefins, refinery and oilfield optimization applications, and an integrated approach to catalytic reactor design and operation, from R&D experimentation to online reactor model applications.

Optional workshops

Optional workshops on PSE’s reactor and global systems analysis technology and a seminar on oilfield production optimization will take place on the morning of Wednesday, October 10. You can see the outline agenda here; more details will be available in the next few weeks.

We look forward to seeing you at the Forum. For more information, please contact the event organizer Lylia Djebaili.
