Enabling better strategic decisions in the global downstream oil industry.
EnSys Energy is an energy consulting, software and data firm with more than 30 years of experience in the petroleum industry. We specialize in the US and global “downstream” covering crude and non-crudes supply, refining, logistics, trade, product demand and regulation.
Our goal is to enable understanding and better decisions. We achieve this by delivering accurate quantitative analyses and modeling in support of strategic decisions for refiners, marketers, crude oil producers, financial institutions, government agencies and other petroleum industry stakeholders. Our aim is to bring value to our clients through our focus on four key consulting services in which we are industry leaders.
Strategic & Regulatory Assessments
We help enable better policy, regulatory, refining and logistics decisions at the regional, national and international level. To achieve this, we use our integrated WORLD (World Oil Refining and Logistics Demand) Model. The WORLD Model® has the unique ability to capture the interactions among supply, demand, regulatory, fuels, logistics, trade and refining and between global regions. The result has been a 30-year track record of successful application to numerous high profile questions and developments. These analyses are forward-looking from one to twenty-five years ahead. They range from regional and global investment and trade outlooks, to implications of alternative logistics scenarios, to assessments of land, aviation and marine fuels regulations, global catalyst markets and carbon regimes.Show more
We provide advanced expert witness services on matters relating to refining economics, fuels products, crude oil and product logistics and markets. Over the past 18 years, our involvement has ranged from West Coast crude oil economics to MTBE/ethanol/gasoline testimony to Midcontinent and Caribbean refining. In one recent assignment, EnSys supported the CFTC in a prominent crude oil market manipulation case. As part of our testimony preparation, we undertook a massive analysis of confidential data. Through this extensive experience, EnSys has gained a reputation for thorough and effective expert testimony.Show more
Refining Capacity Yields & Economics
We provide researched and modeled capacity and yield profiles on refineries worldwide. On a regular basis, we track and update capacity and projects for every refinery worldwide, by process unit type. Researching by refinery leads to more accurate, more up-to-date capacity data than available from common industry sources. Our yields database encompasses profiles on over 200 refineries across the developing world covering Latin America, Caribbean, Africa, Middle East and Asia plus over 170 in Europe and the Former CIS plus the capability to model essentially any refinery worldwide. We track crude slates, primary and secondary processing capacities, utilization rates and product yields. Examples of Refining Economics & Yields projects include modeling refineries’ yields for the International Council on Clean Transportation and generating the Bloomberg refining netbacks from 2004-2012.Show more
Petroleum Fuels Assessments
Through our powerful refinery and global modeling tools, we provide clients with the ability to assess the supply cost and market impacts of new product quality initiatives and regulations. Over the past 30 years, EnSys has undertaken numerous studies which have included reformulated, ultra-low-sulfur and EURO III/IV/V gasoline and diesel, commercial and military jet fuels (Jet-A1, JP-8, JP-11) and marine fuels. Current focus is heavily on the potentially major impacts of the IMO 2020 Sulphur Rule. A key advantage of our integrated WORLD Model® methodology is that it captures the impacts across products, crudes and regions.Show more
