Abstract Energy Savings through Focused Process Monitoring

“Low hanging fruit” can be defined as achieving initial energy savings without major capital investment. After completing internal assessments on its energy system, Syncrude was able to identify a number of key process variables that have a strong correlation with energy use. Through target setting and development of simple systems for monthly monitoring and reporting, Syncrude achieved reductions in energy use on both fired equipment and extraction water systems.
