2 The Data Corner Stone “Putting the Refinery on your Desktop”

3 New Zealand Oil Industry The NZ Oil Industry was deregulated in 1988 - No Protection against Imports Cushioned by the freight differential (crude vs. products) NZRC is a tolling operation - do not own any Hydrocarbon Stock Income generated from a fee based on the differential between the value of Products and Crude Crude and Product prices are set by the MARKET NZRC is vulnerable to the US/NZ rate of exchange

7 Project Dimensions NZ$ 11.3 million (equiv. to $150m plant project in complexity) >60,000 man-hours 25 Charters (individual projects) 36 months duration 160 system users

8 HIP Working for the business To make more income Based on Business Process Model Future aim is for information to be freely available instantly to all parties in the supply chain

12 Recent Configuration Changes Upgraded to 5/500 Mhz CPU Added 256 MB Ram What Effect Did this Have Increased performance CPU 95% idle time Faster access to data 50%increase on original system

13 Current Standing 16504 tags in system, made up of 830 Calculations 3632 Laboratory/Manual Entry Data 11984 Scanned Data 58 Download Tags Scanning 1 minute with 15 & 30 Seconds Some downloading of Data to TDC3000 144 PI-ProcessBooks With 411 Trends & Schematics 104 Corporate Excel reports using PI-Datalink 3 Years On-line Data (12 GB Storage)

14 $ Improving yields Getting more crude throughput Reducing giveaway (GRM) Better planning & Scheduling Using models to predict plant ops Measuring actual - expected data Consistent data in one source HIP BENEFITS Getting the right feedstocks Reducing energy Giving optimal targets to Prod’n

18 Benefits to Industry Faster response to requests for information Single source of data for refining information New crudes analysed 10 times faster Economic consequences of shipping changes now apparent Allows Refinery to respond rapidly to market changes

19 Key Success factors Rigorous Business Process analysis Multi-disciplinary team Project methodology Willingness to take risks Data repository rather than application to application integration Excellent IT architecture Vision and leadershipVision and leadership Relationship with SuppliersRelationship with Suppliers
