At the ADIPEC Exhibition and Conference, Amazon Web Services announced the introduction of its Process Optimization solution for downstream and midstream operations.

The solution uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to provide timely and actional insights for engineers and operators.

Process optimisation activities for downstream and midstream operations are often cumbersome and onerous due to scale and complexity, while existing workflows are heavily reliant upon legacy technologies, and disparate and disconnected tools. The Process Optimization solution can help overcome these challenges and drive operational enhancements by improving unit throughput, product quality and product yields, in addition to improving energy consumption.

The AWS Process Optimization solution is a cloud-native solution that uses innovative services like Amazon SageMaker to build, train, and deploy ML models, and AWS IoT TwinMaker to easily create digital twins of real-world assets. The AI-powered offering is built on a foundational data architecture for open-loop insights, predictions, and recommendations. Leveraging ML, the solution provides models and supporting infrastructure to infer suggested process changes. AI is used for higher level goal-oriented inference providing computer vision, conversational interfaces, and chatbots for improved information accessibility and insight detection. The Process Optimization solution’s digital twin simulation capabilities help users to gain a virtual representation of assets for process and visualisation oversight. This allows operators to simulate proposed facility changes, streamline remote job planning, and re-optimise following unplanned upsets and events.
