8 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. What is Dynamic Simulation? Dynamic Simulation tracks the real behaviour of a process or whole plant over time. Steady State Simulation (Picture) Dynamic Simulation (Movie)

9 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. Why Dynamic Simulation? ♦Robust Design for the Full Range of Operation  Startup, shutdown, restart, load variation and other non- steady state operations  Minimize design margins  Verify control systems ♦Driven by Industry Demand  Larger and complex systems  Reliability, availability, operability and performance optimization  Optimal design of flare and relief systems  Improve on past experience

17 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. What is OTS? Plant Dynamic Model of the Plant DCS Consoles

18 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. OTS Key Features ♦Stand-alone system not connected to plant DCS ♦Duplicates the look and feel of the real plant DCS and Control System ♦Rigorous, high fidelity modeling of all process and logic functions ♦Uses best-in-class commercial OTS software with standard library and custom dynamic models ♦Extensive standard exercises and malfunctions ♦Multiple Initial states for comprehensive training ♦User friendly, modular design

19 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. OTS Capabilities ♦Ability to simulate a wide range of operations from full cold start to normal operations ♦Instructor led and Instructor less training ♦Practice DCS, field & panel operations ♦Suitable for initial training of new operators and on-going skill retention for experienced operators

22 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. Advanced Automation Examples Advanced Process Control

23 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. What is Advanced Process Control? ♦STABILIZE unit operation - minimize variability of key process variables ♦PUSH to constraints - reach closer to the product quality and equipment limitations ♦OPTIMIZE - minimize energy consumption or maximize plant throughput $$$ Poor Control (without APC) Better Control (with APC) Original Setpoint New Setpoint Product Specification Optimized Setpoint

24 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. KBR APC Experience & Benefits ♦Pemex Tula & Salina Cruz Refinery FCC’s  Benefits estimated at nearly $1,000,000 / year for each application ♦Westlake Ethylene Plant  Benefits from C2 Splitter control estimated at $190,000 / year ♦Hyundai Ethylene Plant  Benefits estimated at over $500,000 / year ♦DSM Ammonia Plant  1% Reduction in energy consumption ♦CFL Ammonia Plants (2)  1-2% Increase in production

25 © 2009 KBR. All Rights Reserved. Advanced Process Control - Ammonia In general, the benefits of implementing a APC system in an ammonia plant are: an increase in the ammonia throughput by 1 to 4%, decrease in the energy consumption by 1 to 3%
