Making Better Decisions Using Technology Gives Competitive Advantages in Crude Production

An article in Hydrocarbon Processing (August 1st 2014) describes some of the advantages of using technology to gain a competitive advantage in the highly contentious crude oil processing industry.

Today's Oil and Gas technology toolbox allows companies to improve their performance in production and refining processes by allowing them to leverage the equipment to its maximum efficiency and economic return. Modelling software for example, allows companies to predict the performance of production facilities with some accuracy. This approach has had some success with improving efficiency but the process is complex and there is no one solution that solves all of the problems.
