New alternatives for the Asset Integrity Management in Offshores

Introduction   Asset integrity management (AIM) is the process of ensuring that assets are maintained in a safe and reliable condition throughout their life cycle. This is especially important for offshore facilities, which are subject to unique harsh environmental conditions and complex operating environments. The traditional way of ensuring integrity is based on paper and visual inspections. Taking into account that technology is becoming more present within Oil and Gas operations, the application of state-of-the-art technology is fundamental to enhance the overall process of asset integrity management. How its currently done The current process of AIM is largely manual and [...]
