A major energy company has awarded BPT a significant lifecycle simulator contract

A major energy company has awarded Billington Process Technology (BPT) a lifecycle simulator of a large pipeline and processing facility in Europe. The simulator will be used for high-fidelity control system validation and operator training, as well as used in plant debottlenecking and optimization studies.

“In addition to training of control room and field operators in handling normal and abnormal situations, the advanced simulator will be used for improving and validating the integrated control and safety system (ICSS) before commission and startup of the facility”, informs BPT’s Knut Erik Spilling. “We are delighted by the trust in BPT’s capability and reliability in timely deliveries of high-fidelity simulators that provides undisputed value to the operator.”

The lifecycle simulator will be configured by an experienced team of BPT specialists. The main components are simulator versions of the process control and safety system connected to a tailored instructor and field operator station. The training simulator environment will be powered by an industry-standard first principal plant-specific dynamic process simulator model with full thermodynamic capacities.

Billington Process Technology (BPT) is an independent digital solution, simulation and service company with Headquarter outside Oslo, Norway. BPT has unique domain knowledge within production and process facilities. We are world-class users of process simulators, and among the specialties are compressor design as well as process safety. The BPT Digital Production Twin includes an unmatched solution for holistic sensor-correction providing invaluable data fundament for a number of advanced digital applications (ala machine learning) as well as calibrated steady-state and dynamic simulators for efficient production optimization. BPT is a frontrunner in modernizing field development approach together with innovating oil companies. A BPT specialty is to apply integrated multiphase flow and dynamic process simulators throughout the field development, commissioning, and life of field to validate and improve design as well as troubleshoot and perform production optimization.
