    Market competition in the refining industry is motivating companies to optimize their processes to maximize margins and make better products while meeting more stringent constraints to comply with safety and environmental regulations. Refinery models constitute valuable tools to support operation covering the whole time horizon, from long to medium term in the planning and process engineering to short term in production operation and process control. Simulation models are common tools, improving collaboration between different refinery departments and allowing optimizing the production, operating in a safe manner, and maintaining technical and environmental product specifications.
