Asset integrity management programmes are an essential part of operating and maintaining any plant or facility. An integrated solution will optimise performance by identifying, monitoring & reporting on the likelihood and consequences of failures at every stage of the asset life-cycle through management control and proactive intervention.
RBI software helps achieving the best possible balance between cost and risk by minimising unplanned downtime and optimising production. Each facility is influenced by inherent internal and external risk factors, or the base-line risk as this is known. Such risk factors typically include mechanical deficiencies or the location of the facility (densely populated area, environmentally sensitive or seismic active region). RBI software identifies all these internal and external factors and determines any higher-risk component or section. By integrating the engineering, operational and economic aspects of a project, RBI software enables risk mitigation and inspection strategies to be developed and implemented with the aim of optimising maintenance whilst staying within acceptable risk levels.OPTAGON is a software tool to analyse the performance of complex oil and gas production assets, and has been used in both facility design and operation.
