Reducing atmospheric emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants is one of the most serious challenges the energy industry is currently facing. We believe that the Oil & Gas sector has an opportunity to increase efficiency while reducing emissions. Our approach is built on synergies between process engineering and data management systems that leverage regulatory compliance efforts to identify opportunities for process optimization.
To stay competitive in the oil and gas industry, producers must operate as efficiently as possible. To fully optimize operations, you must consider every component of the facility using a holistic approach wich can be a very complicated task
Harness the power of advanced process simulation models to optimize your operations
Our team has developed a powerful simulation
software that is specifically designed to adapt to
your unique operational situation and can help
identify actions to significantly reduce
inefficiencies in your operations.
Working as partner, we help you develop an accurate and detailed roadmap to optimize your facilities, while keeping track of KPIs such as CapEx, OpEx and GHG emissions.
By modelling and simulating multiple scenarios, Process Ecology can help you identify critical solutions and key bottlenecks on how to optimize your facilities and reduce emissions and costs.
We use applied high-fidelity modelling to provide highly-detailed and constructive results for even the most complex situations

A sustainable oil & gas industry requires decision-support systems to optimize operations, maximize energy efficiency and reduce the environmental footprint in a cost effective manner. Process Ecology has developed the “Xtrema Engine”, a powerful, multi-purpose framework that delivers best available science and engineering methods via flexible cloud-based software tools that help identify opportunities to improve economic and environmental performance
Our software tools deliver fit-for-purpose solutions to the oil & gas sector. These tools have been co-designed with end-users to solve specific problems that currently available tools cannot handle.
Our web-based simulation and optimization tools are unique in the market with both great UX design and powerful calculation algorithms.
Reduce the time and effort required to explore alternative scenarios and new
technologies and identify optimal process configurations while considering multiple
dimensions: technical, economic, environmental.
Drive down cost and maximize efficiency.
