Company Bio:

SimSci-Esscor, of Invensys Process Systems, is a leader in the development of simulation, optimization, and process control software for oil/gas exploration and refining, chemical manufacturing, power generation, and more. Our integrated solutions minimize expenditure, maximize return, and optimize performance–technologies that seamlessly interoperate across the entire lifecycle of a processing facility.


Process Engineering Suite (PES) is integrated software for process engineering design and operational analysis, including special tools for heat transfer and data reconciliation. Easily transfer information within SimSci-Esscor applications or link with third-party software.

Upstream Optimization Suite (UOS) provides integrated field-wide production analysis from sandface through transmission/distribution. It integrates with third-party software in addition to SimSci-Esscor’s PRO/II process simulator for production system modeling.

On-line Performance Suite (OPS) delivers Advanced Process Control (APC), performance monitoring, and on-line optimization to obtain optimal performance from operating units in real time.

Dynamic Simulation Suite (DSS) provides rigorous dynamic simulation and high-fidelity control system emulation for optimizing plant design, operations, and performance management. All DSS products communicate with each other as well as third-party applications.

Operator Training Simulators (OTS) train operators and optimize plant performance using the same simulation tool. Engineers can stretch the limits of a plant’s capability and identify operational and physical constraints in a safe, theoretical environment.

Comos FEED is an engineering data and document-centric database management system that integrates Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) activities during scope/conceptual development and the preliminary engineering phases of a project. Process simulation data is transferred to Comos FEED through a seamless integration with SimSci-Esscor’s PRO/II software.
