We provide specialist services, operation and maintenance support for land-based and offshore oil and gas facilities throughout the lifecycle of an asset. Our team embraces a mix of personnel, ranging from highly competent engineers with hands on experience to young professionals with the latest theoretical knowledge.
We develop and optimise condition based maintenance and inspection programmes combining our vast experience with methodology such as:
- Criticality analysis
- Failure mode effect criticality analysis (FMECA)
- Risk based inspection (RBI)
- Reliability centered maintenance (RCM)
In-house developed state of the art software systems, Pyramid and Aker RBI Tool, are used to streamline and optimise the analysis and integrate with clients’ CMMS systems.
Production availability analysis
Production availability analyses are performed to achieve and maintain high production regularity on oil and gas fields, maximising the utilisation of producing assets and increasing company profit.
Benchmarking maintenance operations, the number of inherent maintenance work-hours, staffing level per task and Opex and life cycle operating cost for:
- New plants
- Operating plants
- Design changes
Multi-disciplinary evaluations are performed to select the right design and maintenance-friendly equipment/packages for streamlined and
efficient maintenance execution.
Based upon expert knowledge about on material degradation mechanisms, operating conditions, existing materials on facility, Capex and Opex, we recommend the best material selection for a specific plant or facility. Also, based upon expert knowledge about osurface protection, we recommend the best solutions to achieve long life in harsh environments.
