S&C has recently released its multifunctional dynamic batch optimization solution. A common application of dynamic batch optimization is to manage oil being stored in tanks. Production wells typically decrease production by 5% to 7% each year, meaning with an aggressive drilling and workover program, less oil is transported through the pipelines requiring a batch mode of operation.
For this type of situation, dynamic batch optimization can be used to optimize shipping. It optimizes when and how much oil is released from tanks into the pipeline to provide the best operation and efficiency and to minimize costs.
Dynamic batch optimization can also be multidimensional and determine, for example, how to optimize for maximum flow rate while having no congealing events. Our highly flexible solution helps solve your batch shipping challenges.
