Unique within the ADNOC Group, Real Time Optimization (RTO) has transformed the operation of NGL trains by optimising all 12 NGL trains of one of ADNOC Gas Processing gas facilities. This enables flexibility such as selectively diverting feed to high yield plants.

The objective of the RTO is to achieve optimal distribution of feed gas and condensate RVP across various processing units of the facility in order to maximize the overall C2 and C2+ recovery, minimize energy consumption, reduce emissions and reduce overall operating cost.

Successfully proven, this is a good case for rolling out to similar complexes. Initiatives are now being taken up for other ADNOC Gas Processing sites and a ONE ADNOC RTO.
