With unit development costs rising and production efficiency falling across mature offshore regions such as the North Sea, there has never been a greater drive to do more with less.

In practice this means running closer to design limits and seeking to extend operational life without compromising safety or exceeding budgets. Improvements in understanding, analytical techniques and computational power are however allowing more robust integrity management decisions to be made, quicker and more affordably than ever before.

This webinar will provide an overview of the factors you need to consider to strike the right balance between ease, cost and risk when assessing options to solve integrity challenges. You’ll also learn about the range of analysis tools and approaches available to today's Integrity Engineers to ensure they make the right decisions.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Discover how targeted analysis can be used to increase safety, maximise budgets, prioritise activities and reduce downtime.
  • Gain an appreciation of the pros and cons associated with the different approaches and which are most appropriate for tackling different real-world issues.
  • Understand the timescales in which analysis based decisions can be made.
  • Learn practical tips and advice to ensure your staff or suppliers are adopting the right approach to realise these benefits.
