New versions of engineering software suite

KBC Advanced Technologies has announced the launch of new versions of its engineering software suite consisting of Petro-SIM, SIM Reactor Suite, Energy-SIM, FEESA Maximus, and Multiflash.


This continues to reinvent process simulation technology with rigorous simulation models that generate trusted results in an intelligent, user friendly environment for upstream, midstream, refinery or petrochemical processes. Petro-SIM allows the user to make knowledgeable decisions to improve facility performance and drive operational excellence. New capabilities in Petro-SIM 6 give greater flexibility for reporting across cases, greater range of native thermodynamic models and further enabled life of field modelling with the integration of Multiflash’s high resolution thermodynamics and FEESA Maximus’ thermal hydraulic production models.

SIM Reactor Suite

The update brings data validation and model validation to a new level by integrating KBC’s knowledge and expertise of industry best practices into the reactor suite to help users understand data by demonstrating unique relationships and highlighting potential problem areas with the input data. The latest release balances key improvements to the core kinetic reactor technology and an enhanced user experience.


This leverages KBC’s ProStream modelling platform to deliver customised steam, fuel and power utilities performance monitoring, forecasting and optimisation capabilities for industrial process facilities across all industry sectors.

FEESA Maximus

The above is a state of the art thermal hydraulic integrated production modelling software for the hydrocarbon industry, providing network simulations from reservoir to processing facilities. The new version showcases more speed improvements and a range of new features, including user defined scripting, wizards and corrosion modelling. This is the first Maximus released since FEESA was acquired in July last year.


This powerful and comprehensive PVT and physical properties package enables users to model the phase behaviour of complex mixtures for applications in oil and gas transportation and processing, flow assurance and throughout the entire value chain. The release of Multiflash 6 allows users that are using Multiflash as their embedded PVT engine an accurate and coherent thermodynamic description of the reservoir fluid throughout the whole engineering and design process, from concept to execution and monitoring. The new version includes major enhancements in the calculation methods, a complete set of advanced fluid modelling functionalities and new facilities for fitting characterisations to PVT experimental data that is all delivered within a fully refreshed user interface.
