Process training simulation
UniSim Design Suite R350 offers steady-state and dynamic simulation, design, performance monitoring, optimization and business planning for the oil and gas production, gas processing, petroleum refining and chemical industries. The software suite allows process manufacturers to design, test and train employees on new processes offline before they are implemented. The suite can also reduce engineering costs by eliminating the need for many error-prone manual processes, such as data-re-entry and data transfer, which account for up to 30% of engineering labor hours.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
