Wasting energy reduces plant profitability and its sustainability footprint. With increasing energy costs and environmental impact, energy efficiency is becoming more important than ever. To be aligned with these requirements, an energy optimization program launched in 2017 as well as several in-house initiatives were implemented to optimize the processes for the reduction of energy consumption. Three major initiatives implemented at an NGL fractionation plant are outlined here, including steam reserve optimization, Adip propane trim heaters shutdown and an automating LPG dehydration regeneration cycle. Implementing these energy saving initiatives successfully reduced approximately 296 MMBt
