ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing introduces InFocus Online Platform

February 25/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- ExxonMobil announced that ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC has launched its ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing introduces InFocus Online Platformto help customers optimize plant performance, increase operational efficiency and minimize production interruptions, said Chemicals-technology.

Users can now use secure, near-real-time data to make faster, more informed decisions and collaborate more easily with ExxonMobil technical support. The platform has been tested and piloted with early adopters and has already been fully deployed in multiple facilities.

"Our customers are under increasing pressure to improve profitability and be more efficient,” said Dan Moore, president of ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing. “Our InFocus Platform will provide deeper insight into their operations and will enable concrete recommendations on ways to optimize plant performance and minimize interruptions. The platform’s common data view enhances collaboration between the operator and ExxonMobil experts. Access to technical expertise and trusted advice defines our customer experience. This technology enhances this value and we are excited to get it into our customers’ hands."

Leveraging more than a century of experience in refinery and chemical plant leadership, the cloud-based InFocus Platform currently provides two solutions.

The predictive tool enables users to quickly and cost effectively test the impact of feedstock and operational changes on lube product yields and quality. Developed from years of ExxonMobil expertise and experience, the tool can also be tuned to match actual unit performance, delivering valuable data enabling users to evaluate feed flexibility, optimize product mix and maximize operational value.

The InFocus online lube optimization model includes lube hydrocracker (LHDC) and MSDW™ dewaxing technology modules, which can be run independently or linked. Each module predicts process performance, product yields and qualities based on key operating variables such as average reactor temperature, space velocity, pressure, product fractionation cut point and separation efficiency.

The InFocus unit monitoring tool enables timely technical insights to improve process performance. Drawing on ExxonMobil’s breadth of technical and operational experience, the monitoring tool provides users with easier access to ExxonMobil expertise, early identification of potential operational concerns and more meaningful analysis.

As MRC informed before, in September 2019, ExxonMobil announced plans to spend GBP140 million over the next two years in an additional investment program at its Fife ethylene plant, which has a capacity of more than 800,000 t/y.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,093,260 tonnes in 2019, up by 6% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. PE shipments rose from both domestic producers and foreign suppliers. The estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,260,400 tonnes in January-December 2019, up by 4% year on year. Supply of almost all grades of propylene polymers increased, except for statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers).

ExxonMobil is the largest non-government owned company in the energy industry and produces about 3% of the world's oil and about 2% of the world's energy.
