10:10 am - 10:40 am Exhibition VIP tour and networking coffee break

The importance of developing and implementing an efficient root cause analysis (RCA) framework to avoid confusion and save time - RCA identifies the real cause of a problem and/or failure to be illuminated; therefore, recurring of failures is prevented
Key question – What is the best way to save time, cost and improve operational efficiency?
  • Systematic process and methods for identifying root causes of problems or asset failures
  • Key points for successful RCA
  • Reliability-centered maintenance vs RCA

·         The basic concept of Asset Integrity Management System (AIMS) and its need in oil and gas industry.
·         Components constituting AIMS
·         Critical assets status Dashboard a development Approach
·         AIMS Assessment Exercise as a tool to assure the system function

PIPELINES INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT Implementing and ensuring an effective asset integrity management plan can save companies up to US$100 million annually on pipeline maintenance costs

12:20 pm - 1:00 pm TRAILBLAZER PANEL: How to access and overcome pipeline integrity challenges to enhance operational reliability & efficiency

Operators who have the best PIM programs achieve it by successfully integrating their processes, documentation, program metrics, and organisation to achieve higher levels of integrity into a well-functioning system. And they achieve better integrity while spending less over the life of their assets.
Key question – Why pipeline integrity management is really vital to improve overall integrity?
  • Causes, prevention and moving forward - Ageing plans, cheap materials for maintenance, corrosion, equipment failures 
  • Prevention and moving forward – Exploitation of assets, roots cause analysis, equipment preservation and sensors, smart pigging and optical inspections

MOVING TOWARDS DIGITALISATION OF ASSETS Digital transformation can approximately create around US$ 1 trillion of value for your business

1:00 pm - 1:15 pm Maximising asset availability using robotic and AI solutions for smart AIM

Unplanned asset downtime is one of the costliest factors affecting energy businesses around the world today. Inspecting such large and complex sites or assets is extremely time-consuming, expensive and risky, especially when completed manually. Even the deployment of robots alone is not an optimised solution, given the lack of systematic frameworks and processes to manage and store the data and information ingested and acquired about the asset throughout its lifecycle.
 
This talk is about how robotics and AI can deliver a cost-efficient and reliable solution to asset integrity management, by combining with AIM-specific digital twin technology, for supporting planning and decision-making over the life of the asset. We will also explore the challenges of conventional practices such as asset tagging and inspections, and look at how they can readily be overcome with such high-tech solutions. 

Key question – How to design and create a digital twin that is fit for purpose?

  • The digital twin is an enabler, not an objective
  • Streamlining AIM workflows  
  • Creating, updating and analysing digital twins
  • Mirror to the best extent possible the physical reality of the site or asset

1:15 pm - 2:15 pm Lunch break and networking

CIRCULAR COLLABORATIVE ECOSYSTEM Integrated digital platforms can enhance collaboration among participants in the oil and gas ecosystem, while also accelerating innovation, reducing costs and making operations transparent

2:15 pm - 2:45 pm Use of drones in oil and gas industry and their benefits


Key question – Did you know drones can save you millions of dollars annually in inspection & maintenance costs?
  • Everybody is using drones for inspection – why don`t you?
  • Multiple usages for drones – multiple opportunities

PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE TECHNIQUES “We have been asked to run the equipment/asset till it breaks down” – have you heard your management ask you the same? Predictive maintenance allows manufacturers to lower maintenance costs, extend equipment life, reduce downtime and improve production quality by addressing problems before they cause equipment failures

2:45 pm - 3:15 pm OLNG Zero Leaks Journey
