Refinery digital transformation: Building the intelligent refinery

Digital technologies are being used to build, operate and maintain refinery assets with greater safety and efficiency. It is estimated that 80 percent of plant losses are preventable and digital solutions can help capture some of these losses.

With an increased focus on moving to digital worker enablement solutions, more predictive and real time asset and production analytics, and creation of virtual, remotely managed “digital twins” – Refiners can better identify root causes of lost production and enable a safer working environment.

Five trends on where companies are on their journey to becoming an Intelligent Refinery—and what they can do to speed it up.
