Project Showcase

Verification of Ex Equipment

Project Goal

To ensure that all Ex equipment on the platform is captured in the asset register, so that the equipment is managed and maintained effectively

Client:

Oil and Gas Operator

Asset:

Offshore Platform

Duration:

6 Months

"9090 Ex Tags not previously accounted for"

Issue

  • None of the Ex equipment tags and critical information were captured in the Ex register
  • The majority of the Ex equipment did not have tag numbers or the name plates were illegible

Impact

  • This exposed the asset to significant safety risks as there was no assurance that the equipment was being maintained
  • Unable to allocate spares to the equipment due to the lack of key information

What we did

  • Identified and validated Ex equipment from asset registers and drawings
  • Site survey to verify tag numbers, make, model, Ex rating, location, environmental impact
  • Assessed the condition of Ex equipment
  • Updated asset register to include any new or missed tags
  • Provided a prioritized roadmap for improvements based on risk

Benefits

  • All identified Ex equipment has the correct level of maintenance assigned
  • Assurance that all Ex equipment is now being maintained
  • Able to identify essential spares for Ex maintenance
  • Allowed budget and resource to be focussed on high risk equipment through a prioritized roadmap for improvement
