Axens’ technology selected by Marathon Petroleum Corporation 

Published by
Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) has implemented Axens’ Connect’InTM services for real time process monitoring and optimisation of multiple continuous catalytic regenerative (CCR) reformers and multiple Prime-G+ FCC gasoline post-treatment units across their refining network. MPC was an early-adopter of the Connect’In platform, and the two organisations have since collaborated to improve unit performance and utilised the tool’s cloud-based, simple web interface to improve decision making and technical service support. Connect’In has improved the MPC and Axens teams’ ability to proactively monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) by automatically exchanging operating data via a secure channel and utilising Axens’ high-fidelity models – all in real time. The engineers from both the Marathon and Axens’ teams can dedicate their efforts to unit improvements and spend less time managing and manipulating data. The tool has been especially useful for network subject matter experts to compare unit performance across their refineries. 

Marathon Petroleum is the largest refiner in the US with 16 refineries totalling 3.1 Million bpd of crude capacity. 

Connect‘In is a natural evolution of Axens’ Technical Services to enhance collaboration between Axens’ experts and client process specialists. The platform builds on Axens’ Digital Suite of Technical Services, APC, dynamic operator training simulators, linear programming, and management support.
