Invensys Operations Management (Australia) , global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services, recently announced that it has reached a multi-year agreement with ConocoPhillips, the third-largest integrated energy company in the United States, to provide simulation for the development of ConocoPhillips’ proprietary E-Gas technology. Invensys will supply its DYNSIM® modeling and simulation software to help improve the design, start-up and operation of new coal gasification plants. The company will also be a preferred supplier of dynamic simulation software to licensees of ConocoPhillips’ E-Gas technology.
"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,” said Cliff Keeler, E-Gas product manager, ConocoPhillips.
Tobias Scheele, vice president of 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, Colo., October 4 through October 7, 2009. This event aims to bring together the gasification industry to share the latest information on trends, new developments and advances in this rapidly growing market.
