Solomon Benchmarking

Combined Site Study

Solomon has been the global leader in performance improvement for over 30 years.

As with the Fuels Study and Lube Study, Solomon’s Worldwide Refinery Combined Site Performance Analysis (Combined Site Study) is used around the globe — not only in North America, South America, Europe, and Africa, but in the Middle East, Asia, and the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The Combined Site Study brings refinery performance issues to the fore at the fuels/lube combined-site level.

Your company’s results from the Combined Site Study will help you determine your competitive position, assess performance shortfalls, formulate expense and margin optimization plans, establish performance targets, and measure progress toward those targets using Solomon metrics.

Why Choose Solomon’s Combined Site Study?

The Fuels Study and Lube Study provide you with “fuels only” and “lube only” perspectives. The Combined Site Study, in contrast, provides you not only with valuable insight into industry trends but into the key performance areas of your own refineries at the combined-site level. One thing all of these studies do is help you identify the level of performance improvement you need to achieve to remain competitive.

Solomon continues to enhance the deliverables for its Combined Site Study while minimizing required input data. We also believe that we continue to offer good value for the base cost of the study while offering improved deliverables and optional related studies.

How It Works

With detailed knowledge of the performance of more than 85% of the refining facilities around the world, Solomon’s experienced team of industry experts combines the input data for the fuels side of the refinery with input data from the lube side, then uses these to generate key study deliverables for the combined site. These study results give you the confidence you need to maximize your margins and optimize your assets with smart decisions based on solid data.

You will breathe easy knowing your company is being measured against worldwide competition using a time-tested methodology that includes strict data definitions and rigorous input data review. This proven methodology has been developed and executed by a team of refining industry professionals who each have more than 25 years of industry experience.
