How We Work
We work in partnership with some of the world’s leading Upstream Oil & Gas Operators, helping them to meet the challenges of assuring Plant Safety & Environmental Integrity and improving Production Efficiency and Operating Cost performance.
Our ability to make a real difference is based on the competence and experience of our people, our structured approach to Maintenance & Reliability Improvement and an intelligent service delivery model. This powerful combination provides our clients with the opportunity to make real and sustainable improvements in their plant reliability and business performance.
Success in delivering Maintenance & Reliability Improvement is good for your business and for ours.
Our experienced team of Maintenance professionals, Reliability Engineers and Analysts are recruited from diverse industry backgrounds and offer a track record of up to 20 years experience in delivering their professional Maintenance & Reliability Improvement expertise in the Upstream Oil & Gas and LNG sectors.
We value both the professional expertise and integrity of our people and their ability to deliver effectively in real world operational environments, working in close partnership with our clients' organisations.
Intelligent Service Delivery
We recognise that for Maintenance & Reliability Improvement to be sustainable it must become an integral part of the way an organisation works. In order to deliver sustainable improvement, our Maintenance & Reliability specialists are often embedded as long term core team members within our clients' Operations & Maintenance teams. They perform the role of 'reliability champions', promoting and delivering the benefits of Reliability Improvement within our clients' organisations.
We recognise that effective networking is key to ensuring that our team's performance exceeds the sum of it's parts. Operating as part of our wider Reliability Improvement Network our engineers and analysts maintain regular dialogue with their mentors and peers to share and enhance their own and our team's corporate knowledge.
When additional specialist support and resources are required, our clients and frontline specialists can engage the backup services provided by our wider team of experienced Maintenance & Reliability Engineering specialists.
Structured Service Offering
Maintenance & Reliability Engineering
We can demonstrate a proven track record in the deployment of a range of proven Maintenance & Reliability Engineering techniques and innovative business solutions on major international Oil & Gas projects.
We are forward thinking and monitor emerging legislation and industry guidance, so that we are in an informed position to deliver innovative and pragmatic reliability based solutions to emerging Asset Integrity Management and Business Performance challenges.
Our services utilise an extensive toolkit of techniques and software tools, based on internationally recognised Reliability Engineering principles and standards. These techniques are configured into a structured improvement framework, in order to effectively target and optimise Reliability Availability & Maintainability (RAM) performance throughout the equipment life cycle.
These services may be provided either on a standalone basis or as part of a structured Reliability Improvement programme. Our services include:-
- Reliability Availability & Maintainability (RAM) Modelling
- Maintainability Studies
- Whole Life Cost Modelling
- Equipment Criticality Assessment
- Safety Critical Equipment Identification
- Failure Mode Effects & Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
- Development of ‘Reliability Based’ Maintenance Strategies
- Development of Equipment Condition Monitoring Strategies
- Development of Operations & Maintenance procedures
- Population and implementation of Computerised Maintenance Management Systems(CMMS)
- Assessment of critical Spares Holding requirements
- Development and implementation of Maintenance & Reliability Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
- Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
- Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA)
- ‘Bad Actor’ Management
- Safety Critical Element (SCE) Performance Standard Assurance & Compliance Reporting
- Maintenance & Integrity Management Auditing
Reliability Improvement Programmes
Whilst we recognise that standalone studies and initiatives have their place, we advocate that sustainable Maintenance & Reliability Improvement requires a structured and robust Improvement programme that harnesses effective business processes with appropriate technology and engages with people at all levels of the organisation. We work either within a client's existing Reliability Improvement programme or can provide a comprehensive and structured Improvement Plan.
Our approach to Reliability Improvement is embodied in our innovative Iceberg process.This process provides a framework to assess an organisation’s current level of maturity in Reliability Management, identifies current strengths and weaknesses and provides a structured ‘roadmap’ of prioritised sequenced actions to achieve the desired level of reliability performance.
