Tools and Capability

Process Group utilises the world's leading engineering software to deliver unparalleled accuracy and certainty. Our highly experienced team has best-in-class process engineering capability in a number of areas including Process Simulations, Relief & Flare System Design, Consequence Modelling (PHAST), Heat Exchanger Design and Optimisation. 

Symmetry Process Simulation is best-in-class simulation technology for the hydrocarbon and petrochemical industries. The preferred simulation package choice for physical property characterisation by OEMs, Symmetry Process Simulation uniquely integrates the modelling of fields, pipe networks, process plants, and flare systems. 

Heat Transfer Research, Inc. is the global leader in process heat transfer and heat exchanger technology. Considered the industry’s most advanced thermal process design and simulation software, HTRI rates, simulates, and/or designs a variety of heat transfer equipment. 

Getting timely feedback from project stakeholders helps avoid costly changes on projects, allowing collaboration in real-time. Bluebeam is advanced design software for visual communication and collaboration of design concepts and engineering detail. It keeps teams on the same page through the design process, helps move the project forward during construction and preserves important project data.
