Deliver value: Performance assurance
Organisations that perform at their best are able to adjust to changing dynamics without compromising competitiveness.
KBC has proprietary methodologies and technologies to ensure you have the resilience to ride out internal and external turbulence while continuing to deliver superior results with the resources and capabilities available.
We are focused on delivering sustained enhancement of return on capital employed for our customers. We do this by ensuring your core operating assets, people, the technologies you use and business processes you execute perform at their best. Our solutions are outcome-driven and designed to produce long-term, sustainable benefits.
Create new value: Future competitiveness
Many businesses across the energy and chemical industry operate in highly competitive, capital-intensive environments, which are subject to energy and feedstock price volatility and geopolitical pressures.
Our future competitiveness solutions deliver sustainable strategies that meet the needs of the market throughout the life of a given asset. We do this by maximising the asset’s operating efficiency and profitability and minimising capital expenditure.
Our solutions for the commercial optimisation of assets take into account the full value chain, including product market demand, competitor pressures, facility processing constraints and feedstock supply options.
Be a good citizen: License to operate
Our customers face an increasingly interconnected world, where lapses of focus on legal, regulatory and stakeholder developments potentially come at significant cost. Your license to operate is at stake every day.
Our industry solutions recognise the specific regional regulations and political environment in which you work, ensuring that you can maintain the critical balance between economic growth and competitiveness vs social progress and environmental stewardship.
Safety and compliance sit at the core of all KBC’s solutions. Our engineering simulation technology, software applications and extensive process expertise are focused on maximising your profitability at all times. They are also subject to goals and constraints around operating safely, minimising environmental impact and meeting our stakeholders’ regulations. We take these obligations seriously because we know you do.

Knowledge and information is useless unless you are going to do something with it. Whilst big data presents many opportunities, it can also paralyze an organisation and hinder the speed of decision making.
Effect of the Thermodynamic Model and Parameters in Process Modelling
In this paper, we analyse the effect of the choice of the thermodynamic model, in the context of fluid modelling for the purposes of process simulation in oil and gas applications.
Successfully Harnessing Digital Technologies
In this viewpoint we outline the barriers to successfully turning data into dollars, and how new approaches which synthesize existing and new tools and competencies are beginning to cause a disruptive step change in performance for those able to capitalise.
