Hydrocarbon Engineering,

On 10 November KBC Advanced Technologies plc (KBC), a leading consultancy and software provider to the hydrocarbon industry, announced the launch of the Petro-SIM™ 6.1 process simulator. Petro-SIM continues to improve process simulation technology with simulation models that generate reliable results in a user friendly environment for upstream, midstream, refinery or petrochemical processes. Petro-SIM 6.1 supports the open platform vision for Petro-SIM within process simulation and builds on the existing platform architecture.

Mike Aylott, KBC’s Chief Technology Officer, said, "Petro-SIM 6.1 extends our commitment to an open and extensible platform, giving extension developers full access to our database and Microsoft Excel™ integration together with new methods for extending the functionality of built in objects."

"We also announce Petro-SIM Web, an exciting new technology that makes Petro-SIM simulations available through modern web browsers, giving organisations more options for viewing and running simulations and collaborating in their own or partner organisations, extending the reach of the Petro-SIM platform across the plant lifecycle," Aylott continued.
