Optimise Capital Projects and Operations in Oil and Gas Downstream
Downstream refining and petrochemical producers achieve superior performance by driving value, agility, and sustainability throughout their asset lifecycle. We apply our software and services to continuously improve capital projects and operations.
Optimised Capital Projects
Whether you are building a new plant, are in the process of information handover, or modifying an existing plant, we can help you streamline your capital project to increase profitability, reduce the risk of overruns, shorten schedules, and improve collaboration.
- Integrated Engineering Design
- Information Management
- Enterprise Resource Management
- Contract Management
- Laser scanning/3D data capture
Our solutions are designed to help you optimise every stage of your capital project. They are available in the cloud, as SaaS, and on-premise.
Safe and Efficient Operations
We apply technologies and expertise to lower waste, reduce or eliminate safety incidents, provide more agile production capabilities, deliver immediate access to accurate data, manage remediation projects, reduce unit costs, energy, and greenhouse gas intensities, and reduce plant emissions–all while raising yields, quality compliance and operational efficiency.
- Enterprise Asset Management
- Information Management
- Process Simulation
- Supply Chain Management
- Workflow Management
We provide solutions to help you continuously improve processes, engineering, operations, and maintenance.
Meet or exceed many of the challenges facing petroleum refining today: heavier feedstocks, rising energy costs, and shifting demand profiles. Maximise the value of every molecule processed to operate your plant safely and profitably.
Optimise product mix at the minimum cost of production by maximising yields, minimising energy consumption, operating safely, and minimising unplanned downtime. Respond quickly to the price sensitivity of commodity products in this cost-driven market.
Achieve optimal planning, scheduling, and material loss management through accurate inventory and movement information, movement automation, and offline/online multi-blend optimisation. Consistent refinery inventory reduces quality giveaway and reprocessing.

IIoT that Transforms the Way You Optimise Assets, Processes, and People
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is playing a growing role in how plants operate. The falling cost of connectivity and data storage enable operators, engineers, and management to quickly gain value from their existing IT infrastructure. However, getting data is not the challenge; gaining insight is. While the transition to an IoT-centric architecture still has gaps, AVEVA’s framework can help you maximise business value from IoT.
Maximise the Asset Lifecycle
- Create new high margin products.
- Develop and optimise new and existing production processes for lower cost per unit.
- Innovate your process by leveraging simulation throughout the plant lifecycle, avoiding costly rework and enabling operational excellence.
- Support operators with relevant decision advise on current vs. ideal plant and unit performance.
- Drive your Manufacturing Operations Transformation (MOT) to promote operational excellence (thus reducing production cost) across multiple sites through global best practices, standardised processes, and KPIs.
- Integrate production with supply chain for higher asset utilisation.
- Synchronised business and manufacturing data.
- Reduce TCO per site by up to 30 percent.
Enable the People
- Bring new operators up to speed in new and aging economies.
- Decrease time to knowledge and increase retention.
- Increase access to actionable information (including mobility).
- Make their job easier in a highly automated environment.
- Increase safety within the plant.
- Increase worker efficiency.
Innovation Through Excellence
No matter where you are within the chemicals life cycle, your primary goal is excellence.
- Engineering excellence is about optimising production while minimising costs.
- Supply chain excellence relates to more effective teamworking and building trusted partnerships.
- Operational excellence means using trusted data that helps your team to make better decisions.
- Asset excellence is about managing continual change during the design, procurement, construction, and operation of the world’s most complex digital assets.
Enhance your production and ensure safe operations for your team and your environment.

Integrated Engineering and Design (IE&D)
AVEVA’s IE&D portfolio enables multi-discipline teams to create, refine, and communicate engineering and design information in real time, from anywhere in the world. With more effective communication and efficient change management, teams can arrive more quickly at a final, clash-free, and optimised design.
Intelligent Information Management and Asset Visualisation
AVEVA’s intelligent information management portfolio creates a network of contextualised information which acts as the backbone of the Digital Twin. Assessment against managed information standards (including CFIHOS) means you can trust in the quality of your information, so that the value of engineering data is realised throughout the asset lifecycle.
Contract Risk and Obligation Management
The AVEVA ProCon contract management system connects all decision makers to protect capital investment, drive performance and improve profitability. Manage all commercial activity at every phase of the strategic asset’s life cycle in a holistic system. Combine tools with real-time contract analytics software and integration technologies.
Enterprise Resource Management (ERM)
The AVEVA ERM solution supports the entire project execution process, from initial project planning and material identification, through design, procurement, and logistics, to construction work pack planning and control.
Laser-Scanning/3D Data Capture
AVEVA LFM offers cost competitive, low-risk 3D data capture that enables you to visualise your as-operated plant, benefitting from integrated, accurate plant data that spans the asset lifecycle. Best-in-class productivity features are complemented by LFM’s unique ability to integrate high-resolution laser scan data with new design, both in the 3D design environment and in its drawing deliverables.
Digital Twin for Your Entire Process Plant Lifecycle
Whether you need to increase efficiency, productivity or profitability, SimCentral Simulation Platform can create your plant’s Digital Twin for use across the process lifecycle. With increasingly detailed process information, you can compare actual plant status against your simulation model to see and understand unit performance monitoring and real time optimisation.
Maximize the Asset Lifecycle
Create new high margin products, develop new and optimize existing production processes for lower cost per unit. Innovate your process by leveraging simulation throughout the plant lifecycle avoiding costly rework and enabling Operational Excellence. Support operators with relevant decision advise on current vs. ideal plant and unit performance.
