Jacobs Consultancy’s Petroleum, Chemicals & Energy Practice develops and provides several software applications, databases, and reporting tools for the refining, pipeline, trucking, rail, and marine industries. Several of these applications assist clients in meeting regulatory compliance requirements. Products available include:
DieselTrakkerTM - Assists refiners, importers, blenders, traders, transporters, and terminal operators with the ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) compliance reporting required by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). DieselTrakkerTM is designed to work with your existing Pace-CTR® refinery reporting system, producing the additional reports required under the "Designate & Track" regulations, or it can be used standalone as a total system solution to handle compliance reporting for the entire distillate distribution chain. This Web-based system includes a new feature that allows clients to cross match their "Designate & Track" handoff volumes prior to submitting compliance reports, so this feature can help minimize time and money spent on handoff reconciliation.
PACE-CTR® - Provides refiners, oxygenate blenders, and importers with data needed to determine compliance with the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendment, the California Clean Fuels Phase II and III, Tier II sulfur, MSAT and ULSD requirements. PACE-CTR® contains the simple, complex Phase I and II models as defined by the EPA. PACE-CTR® is scalable, operating on desktops or residing in a client-server configuration with a central database.

CARB-CTRTM - Designed for refiners and importers of CARB Phase II and III gasolines, this application tracks the production specification(s) being used to meet the CARB's predictive model. Comprehensive reports provide the user with compliance data for all parameters being averaged. The application is scalable, operating on desktops or residing in a client-server configuration with a central database. Login here to access the CARB-CTRTM database.(Password Required)
Jacobs Olefins Database - This database is a client/server application for tracking and reporting U.S. steam cracker operations, feedstock demands, olefins pricing, manufacturing costs, and supply/demand balances. Output from steam cracker operations can be broadly summarized by region or detailed to include "unit by unit" operations. Survey information from our subscription service, The Hodson Report, is updated monthly, as well as previous months' revisions. This database includes monthly data on all U.S. steam crackers, from January 1988 to the present. Login here to access the Jacobs Olefins database.(Password Required)
E-CALCTM - Emissions Calculator is a user-friendly tool to calculate gasoline emissions such as VOC, Toxics and NOx based on fuel properties. E-CALCTM calculates emission values for the current Complex I and II models. EPA-valid parameter ranges are integrated within E-CALCTM, making it a much safer and more robust tool than the EPA spreadsheet. Download this free calculator now.
