Solomon Associates Presents Hydrocarbon Loss Reduction Seminars To Improve Refinery And Petrochemical Plant Performance
Hydrocarbon loss domain experts host seminars in Europe and Asia to highlight industry best practices and the fundamentals of effective hydrocarbon management.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) - Solomon Associates, the leading performance improvement company for the global energy industry, will present two Hydrocarbon Loss Reduction Seminars for fuels and lube refineries and petrochemical plants around the world. The first 2-day public seminar will be held Oct. 23-24 in Budapest, Hungary, followed by the second public two-day seminar Oct. 30-31 in Singapore.
“Solomon Associates has led successful programs to reduce hydrocarbon loss at refineries, petrochemical plants, and terminals around the world,” said John Havener, Solomon’s net cash margin improvement senior consultant.
During net cash margin improvement projects, Solomon domain experts have identified quick-hit hydrocarbon loss reduction wins that provide average operational savings that exceed US $10 million per year with little or no capital investment within a 90-day period.
“The seminars will teach the same principals we use in on-site assessments. Participants will come away with at least three clear opportunities to reduce hydrocarbon loss in their facilities, “ said Havener. “The savings gained by acting on these ideas will pay for seminar participation at least 10 times over.”
The Public Hydrocarbon Loss Reduction Seminars are presented in response to customer requests for assistance in reducing hydrocarbon loss in refining, petrochemical, and lube facilities.
Both seminars will cover the mass balance, measurement, and loss prevention methods needed to minimize profit loss due to hydrocarbon loss.
Participants will learn:
- Industry standard targets for maximum allowable loss
- Industry standard material balance methods and standards
- Typical hydrocarbon loss sources and standard solutions
- Required instrument measurement accuracy
- Flare and fuel measurements and calculations
- Process and aqueous loss sources
- Tankage losses and prevention
The courses are intended for anyone who takes part in the reduction of hydrocarbon loss or who helps decide hydrocarbon loss investments. No prior knowledge of hydrocarbon loss management is required.
The Budapest and Singapore seminars are public. Solomon also offers private seminars for individual operating companies upon request.
“Hydrocarbon loss significantly impacts operational yields and the environment, and it has both a direct and indirect impact on plant performance,” said Dale Emanuel, president of Solomon Associates. “Facilities must make hydrocarbon loss reduction a priority in order to capitalize on the highly profitable rewards and improved community relations it can bring.”
