  3. Executive Summary • Why maintenance is to be considered strictly related to production? • In the production systems, besides their maintenance costs, it is priority to consider the cost of deferred production due to the maintenance activities; • It is easily understood, that to predispose strategies to reduce the losses of production of the productive systems means to optimize the production process itself; • The main objective is to find the right balance between maintenance activities and lower production losses; • For this purpose “Design to cost” procedures shall be closely linked with RAM analysis. AN 9/04/2011

  4. Executive Summary • Actual systems scheduled maintenance state-of-the-art • The production systems are normally shut down for planned inspections, during which are foreseen technical controls in accordance with legislative and regulatory bodies’ requirements related to: • Internal inspection of all pressure vessels; • Metrology regulatory procedures; • Instrumentation, Fire & Gas certification; • SIL test interval; • Manufacturer constraints (i.e. to comply with possible warranties); • Etc ... AN 9/04/2011

  5. Executive Summary • Conclusion and what actions to be taken ? • It is necessary reverse the trend by increasing the capacity of a plant to operate for a long period without major scheduled maintenance actions; • Drastically reduce these maintenance operations means limiting the downtime of system, say “institutional”; • Decrease the system down time (unavailability) means to reduce production losses and indirectly to optimize the production; • Accordingly in oil & gas industries, it is a feature of Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis to take the cost of deferred production into consideration as an important cost category. AN 9/04/2011

  6. Our Mission • General Statements • To work in close partnership with customers to tailorise after-sale support and to ensure that maintenance assistance is to the purpose: ‘to increase the availability of system while lowering the maintenance costs’; • To customize the maintenance service, studying the most effective after-sale support for a long product life-cycle means maximisation of customers revenues; • To put the customer in the position to manage and control the maintenance activities; • The key word is: • Maintenance Engineering: • Its integration into the project with the scope of coordinating the activities and resources to optimize the maintenance support system. AN 9/04/2011

  7. Our Mission • What We Promise to the Customer AN 9/04/2011

  8. Our Mission • How do we get the promises • During project execution, we report to the Customer the production efficiency, expressed as a percentage of the predicted production vs design capacity by means of avaliability analysis; • The availability analysis allows assessing the annual downtime of the plant in terms of loss of production due to both corrective and preventive maintenance actions, according to the failure frequency of components, maintenance data and policies; • For a plant recently examinated a production efficiency is estimated to be 80.1%; • The 80.1% represents the average of this graph over time. AN 9/04/2011

  9. Our Mission • Customer Gain • In light of our long experience in the O&M field, the increasing the availabilty is possible through reducing the plant down time due to scheduled shutdowns, by means a qualified maintenance support organization to perform the following activities: • Reliable day-to-day operations and routine maintenance; • Reducing cost of equipment service and repair; • Utilization of local and remote monitoring and diagnostics; • Site training, documentation and procedure development; • Certified engineering and technical support; • Reducing cost of Inventory management. • A further down time reducing can be achieved by providing spare for critical items (for example: flare K.O. drums both onshore and offshore); • To study and to implement design modifications and improvements. In conclusion, the Customer can have a “powerful” support tool consists of human resources, methodologies and technologies to increase BOPD AN 9/04/2011

  10. Main Objectives • Our goal is to collaborate with customers to optimize maintenance costs in terms of efficiency and operational availability of systems. The scope of collaboration is tailored to the needs of the customer; • To facilitate the optimization of maintenance services, the supportability requirements are identified (spares, manual, skill of personnels, etc) during early stage of the design of the plant and equipment; • Services offered range from traditional maintenance and post-warranty service contracts to the full service maintenance support through which it is ensured the required level of operational availability & safety of plant.
