Simulation Sciences Inc. Awarded Contract by Kvaerner For Process Development and Design Software

Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Simulation Sciences Inc.

    BREA, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Simulation Sciences Inc.
 (SIMSCI(R)), a worldwide leader of advanced process control, optimization and
 simulation solutions to the global process industries, today announced that it
 has been awarded a contract valued at over $1M with Kvaerner.  Under the terms
 of the contract, Kvaerner will license SIMSCI's Process Engineering Suite(TM)
 (PES) and PIPEPHASE software as a key tool in their development, design and
 engineering of chemical, oil and gas processes.
     "We are pleased to be awarded another contract by Kvaerner," said Brian
 Ahern, president of SIMSCI.  "The constituent companies of the Kvaerner
 organization have used SIMSCI software for many years.  This contract win
 reconfirms their confidence in us and our commitment to providing our
 customers with quality products and services to help them improve their
 process designs and their own productivity."
     Kvaerner Process Technology in London develops and licenses a range of
 chemical and petrochemical processes, including steam reforming, methanol,
 oxo-alcohols, butanediol, alcohols and specialty chemicals.  SIMSCI's
 PRO/II(R) is used extensively in the development of these processes.  Kvaerner
 Engineering and Construction use SIMSCI process engineering tools in the
 subsequent engineering of plants in their various offices around the world.
 SIMSCI's PRO/II, INPLANT(TM) and PIPEPHASE programs are also used in the oil
 and gas sector by Kvaerner Oil & Gas in Norway and the United Kingdom.
     "PRO/II is an indispensable tool in our business of developing novel
 processes," said Jim Duhan, senior vice-president, technology for Kvaerner
 Process Technology.  "The evaluation and process design of complex process
 schemes involving azeotrope breaking, reactive distillation and divided wall
 columns would not be possible without sophisticated, adaptable and robust
 simulation software.  The flexible modeling environment of PRO/II enables us
 to simulate reliably all elements of our processes and to optimise their
 performance."
 
     About Process Engineering Suite (PES) and PIPEPHASE
     SIMSCI's Process Engineering Suite (PES) is a consistent set of
 technically superior tools for process engineering design and operational
 analysis and is comprised of PRO/II, HEXTRAN(R), DATACON(TM), INPLANT and
 VISUAL FLOW(TM).  Using the industry leading Windows NT environment, this
 integrated suite of software readily interfaces with other applications
 commonly used by process engineers, thus enhancing productivity in the plant
 life cycle.  The Process Engineering Suite can be used for oil and gas
 production, refining, petrochemicals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and polymer
 plant modeling.
     PIPEPHASE provides a Windows-based environment for building piping and
 production system models that simulate the flow of gas and oil from the well
 to the processing complex.
 
     About SIMSCI
     SIMSCI, an Invensys company, is a worldwide supplier of commercial
 simulation and optimization software and related services to the petroleum,
 petrochemical and industrial chemical process industries as well as to
 engineering and construction firms.  SIMSCI's products are designed to
