By Michael Deighton

Facility Integrity administration: powerful ideas and Practices for the Oil, fuel and Petrochemical Industries provides the knowledge had to thoroughly comprehend universal mess ups within the facility integrity administration method. via realizing this extra complete technique, businesses may be capable of higher establish shortcomings inside of their respective approach that they didn't observe existed. To introduce this technique, the publication presents managers and engineers with a version that guarantees significant method incidents are kept away from, getting older amenities are stored in a secure and trustworthy kingdom and are working at greatest degrees, and any gaps in the integrity administration method are pointed out and addressed, similar to the all too universal fragmented reliability courses.

The e-book ways oil and fuel facility administration from a common standpoint, successfully charting out latest oil and fuel amenities and their linked paintings tactics, together with upkeep, operations, and reliability, after which reconstructs them which will optimize the way in which integrity is controlled, making a synergy around the numerous components.

Easy to learn, choked with useful functions utilized to genuine strategy plant situations reminiscent of key suggestions, procedure circulation charts, convenient checklists, real-world case reports and a dictionary, presents a top quality consultant for a breakdown unfastened facility, maximizing productiveness and go back to shareholders.

  • Helps readers achieve a pragmatic and particular method of facility integrity administration supported with real-world case experiences from oil, fuel, and petrochemical facility locations
  • Presents a facility integrity excellence version, a holistic process for oil and gasoline businesses to force in the direction of integrity insurance unit tracking, making a failure-free environment
  • Identifies and addresses failure of facility approaches and kit prior to the onset of functionality degradation, maintaining gear upkeep charges low and reliability high

We need to know how we are performing today in order to improve our performance in the future. Improvements may result in lowering operating overhead costs, increasing throughput, pushing out time between shutdowns, de-bottlenecking, minimizing waste, etc. We can therefore with relative ease apply a measurement system not only to measure the results of the facility integrity processes but also to measure internal performance of our integrity processes themselves. Ultimately, we are driving towards an answer to the following questions: How is the facility integrity department performing?

In response to this problem, an existing vent point on the pipe was modified to include the injection of water into the line. The idea was that the water injected into the pipe would dissolve the salts to address the fouling problems. It was discovered that, over time, the water injection into the vent impinged the pipe elbow in a corrosion/erosion degradation mechanism and ultimately ruptured the elbow. On investigation it was noted that the overhead gas pipe elbow wall thickness had reduced to such an extent that the wall could no longer withstand the internal pressure within it.

As we apply the barrier analysis model, it is apparent that weaknesses within each barrier tend to be present in some shape or form. In continuation of the Swiss cheese analogy, we recognize that the “holes” are continually under a state of change: for example, differences in competence of operations and maintenance staff, equipment wear and performance deterioration, bypasses of operation and maintenance procedures, along with many others. Our aim in this regard is to identify the “holes” or weaknesses and ensure that they are as small as possible.
