Dinu Ajikutira, AI Industry Lead from Canvass AI will be speaking at the conference about Increasing Refinery Revenue by Predicting Octane Blending Targets with Industrial AI.

Presentation Summary: Industrial AI is revolutionizing the operations of modern refineries. It automates data analyses and processes to solve problems and enable engineers to concentrate their efforts, save time, and provide better solutions to operational challenges. In addition, AI models can be deployed for real-time guidance and control in areas where Advanced Process Control (APC) is not or cannot be used today. These AI models work in conjunction with existing simulation and APC technologies, as well as existing engineering and operator workflows, to achieve optimal outcomes.

A unique application of industrial AI is demonstrated by a large North American refinery, where AI is being used to accurately predict the increase in octane levels resulting from ethanol blending at distribution points, as well as the final octane number from blender outlets. By using these predictions to set octane targets, blending operators were able to fine-tune their blending “recipes” to produce gasoline octane levels with more precision, reducing “octane giveaway”. This optimization results in greater refinery profits.

Looking ahead, industrial AI is being used to balance unit operations and predict margins at refineries, and its application to improve planning is seen as the next frontier. Several potential planning applications are currently being explored. Industrial AI is not only enhancing current refinery operations but also paving the way for future advancements.
