That is not uncommon.  I've seen it several times in my 38 year career.

But your simulation needs only a single reboiler.

In a gas plant that I has worked after liquid charge increase in the deethanizer tower we put a second reboiler, this tower works without problems. Two reboiler works in parallel.

There is no limitation for number of reboilers to be applied in a tower tray.
