Resources on Oil and Gas Applications

This page covers Oil and Gas applications, both offshore (production) and onshore (refining).

  • Algorithms for Industrial Model Predictive Control, D.Sandoz, M.Desforges, B.Lennox and Peter Goulding, IEE Computing & Control Journal, June 2000. Discusses three different methods for realising constrained predictive control that are in different stages of take up in industrial applications. An example based on a heavy oil fractionator is presented.
  • Crude Unit Control and Optimisation at Grangemouth Refinery, Allan Jones, Special Feature in IEE Computing & Control Journal on Model Predictive Control, October 1999.
  • Explosive Lessons, M.Bransby, IEE Computing & Control Journal, April 1998. A review of a major accident at an Oil Refinery, looking at the incident, fault, operator interface, training and alarm managment issues.
