Launch of InsituSIM - InnoTech Alberta
Posted on: September 25, 2018
Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA) in partnership with Process Ecology and InnoTech Alberta are excited to launch InsituSIM, which provides a platform for performing techno-economic evaluations of various configurations and operating conditions at oil sands in-situ facilities.
In 2015, Process Ecology created co2cepts, which was focused on GHG emissions reduction. The new version of the tool, InsituSIM, has expanded capabilities including alternative water treatment technologies, ability to simulate multiple steam assisted gravity drainage central processing facilities (SAGD CPF) configurations as well as improved selection of key performance indicators.
Examples of these features include:
- Water treatment technologies (Membrane, Disposal Water Treatment, and Ion Exchange blocks)
- Risk-based analysis via Monte Carlo simulation
- KPI Manager
- Improved models for Boilers and Heat Recovery Steam Generators
- Many other usability enhancements and improvements
We are hosting a webinar on October 16th from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. (MST) to showcase the tool’s new functionality and new modelling support being offered by InnoTech Alberta.
