Day One

10:00 GMT – Improving efficiency, agility, and cost performance through effective asset life extension management

Learn from ADNOC, and hear case studies into improving business performance.

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 the need for a new asset management strategy, and how the ALEM System has improved overall asset reliability and cost effectiveness, including:

  • Optimised 20-year life extension actions
  • Long-term budget visibility
  • Current condition and remnant life score & status
