After conducting multiple site visits and identifying several asset integrity, ageing, obsolescence, reliability, and maintenance issues, ADNOC Gas Processing implemented an Asset Life Extension Management (ALEM) system in order to extend asset life and reduce operating costs. This case study will focus on the issues that sparked that need for a new asset management strategy, and how the ALEM system has improved overall asset reliability and cost effectiveness, including:
  • Optimized 20 year Life Extension actions
  • Long term Budget visibility
  • Current Condition & Remnant Life Score & Status
  • ALEM Management System Review results (Compliance & Effectiveness)
