Solomon Associates, the leading performance improvement company for the global energy industry, will present its Hydrocarbon Loss Reduction Seminar next month in Brazil. The seminar is designed to assist managers and supervisors at refinery, petrochemical, and lube plants around the world better manage profit loss. The 2-day seminar will be held October 15–16 in Pituba, Bahia, Brazil.

“Solomon Associates is offering this 2-day seminar in response to customer requests for assistance in reducing the hydrocarbon loss in their operations,” said John Havener, a senior consultant at Solomon Associates. “In this course, we cover the mass balance, measurement, and loss-prevention methods needed to minimize profit loss due to hydrocarbon loss.”

The Hydrocarbon Loss Seminar is intended for anyone participating in hydrocarbon loss reduction or anyone who helps decide hydrocarbon loss investments. The seminar is not just for loss-reduction experts; unit supervisors and plant managers will find it valuable as well. No prior knowledge of hydrocarbon loss management is required.

Participants will learn:

  •     Industry standard targets for maximum allowable loss
  •     Industry standard material balance methods and standards
  •     Typical hydrocarbon loss sources and standard solutions
  •     Required instrument measurement accuracy
  •     Flare and fuel measurements and calculations
  •     Process and aqueous loss sources
  •     Tankage losses and prevention

“Our Hydrocarbon Loss Seminar is like nothing else offered,” said Dale Emanuel, president and CEO of Solomon Associates. “Participants come away with at least three ideas to reduce loss at their individual facilities, which, when implemented, pay for the cost of the seminar by more than 50 times.”

Solomon Associates has led successful hydrocarbon loss reduction programs at refineries, petrochemical plants, and terminals around the world. The company has identified specific improvements that can be implemented quickly at little or no cost. These methods have consistently led to annual savings of US $2M to US $10M at each company site.
