To provide dynamic simulation for development of E-Gas technology
Invensys Operations Management, a provider of technology systems, software and consulting services to the process and manufacturing industries, has reached a multi-year agreement with integrated energy company ConocoPhillips to provide dynamic simulation for the development of ConocoPhillips’ E-Gas technology.
Cliff Keeler, E-Gas product manager of ConocoPhillips, said: We were very impressed with Invensys’ professionalism and technical capabilities, particularly around gasification, and we look forward to working with them on this important development effort.
Under the terms of the contract, Invensys will supply its DYNSIM modeling and simulation software to help improve the design, start-up and operation of new coal gasification plants. In addition, Invensys will be a preferred supplier of dynamic simulation software to licensees of ConocoPhillips’ E-Gas technology.
Tobias Scheele, vice president of advanced applications at Invensys Operations Management, said: With our extensive experience in gasification and our ability to deliver cutting-edge solutions that address important industrial issues, we believe we are uniquely positioned to help ConocoPhillips successfully develop its global E-Gas business.
“Gasification is the cleanest, most efficient process for converting coal into a hydrogen-rich alternative fuel, and we are excited to help ConocoPhillips as they use their E-Gas technology to pursue efficient and environmentally responsible synthesis gas production projects.
ConocoPhillips will display the Invensys prototype of the E-Gas two-stage gasifier during the Gasification Technologies Conference at the Broadmoor Conference Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, October 4 through October 7, 2009.
