The importance of structural integrity [report]
The industry is in the midst of an oil price depression the likes of which the world has not seen for a generation. If we add a prolonged dip in the cost of a barrel to the unavoidable threats of ageing, extreme weather and the hypothetical menace of freak events, asset and structural integrity management (SIM) are in the spotlight to a greater extent than ever before.
SIM professionals are now addressing the challenges that the oil and gas environment is presenting. To help them face these challenges, Oil and Gas IQ and Bentley Systems have launched an examination into the state of asset integrity.
