Petrotechnics has announced that Accenture has selected its Proscient solution for Saudi Aramco’s new Jazan refinery complex.

The solution will be implemented as part of Saudi Aramco’s integrated manufacturing operations management system (imoms) to reduce risk, improve productivity and lower costs.

The US$2.1billion refinery, which is scheduled for completion later this year, will have the capacity to process 400 000 bpd of crude oil and produce 80 000 bpd of gasoline, 250 000 bpd of ultra-low sulfur diesel and over 1 million tpy of benzene and paraxylene products.

The Imoms system is a comprehensive set of 12 applications, 20 integrated solutions and 550 processes encompassing risk management, production management and activity management.

Proscient will deliver the PSORMS capabilities within imoms to proactively mitigate operational risk and optimise the work schedule dynamically and graphically. It will facilitate the capture and management of work permits, real-time risk analysis, incident reporting, emergency preparedness and safety response, key performance indicators (KPIs) and management of change. Imoms and Proscient will ensure that complex operational data is transformed into meaningful information to provide everyone with the right information at the right time to make the right decisions.

Massimo Pagella, Managing Director of Resources, Accenture, said: “Imoms enables the connected, collaborative and safe industrial operations of the future – today. Proscient is a core component of imoms and will support better decision making […] Petrotechnics’ long track record and approach to helping oil and gas organisations deliver safer and more effective operations combined with the strength of Proscient made them the best choice for imoms and Saudi Aramco.”

Iain Mackay, Chief Operating Officer, Petrotechnics, said: “Petrotechnics is proud to have been chosen by Accenture to provide the critical PSORMS capabilities of imoms for Saudi Aramco’s new Jazan refinery […] Imoms will help realise Saudi Aramco’s vision of a 21st century approach to excellence in industrial operations, further solidifying it as a global leader in innovation and operational excellence in the oil and gas industry.”
