RELIABILITY AND MAINTENANCE IMPROVEMENT ISSUES | PLANT INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT

This area of investigation was directed toward addressing the impact of Reliability and Maintenance Improvement practices on the Utility Units’ Asset Management Program. Table 3-8 lists the issues addressed and the resultant findings.

RELIABILITY AND MAINTENANCE IMPROVEMENT ISSUES

Inquiry Response
What data is collected to identify improvement opportunities and what screening process is used for assessing? What function is responsible for analyzing the data and recommending changes
to the maintenance programs? Is cost-benefit considered?
There is a significant amount of data available from SAP maintenance histories and inspection results to identify areas of improvement. There was no information available that this is being accomplished; improvement opportunities are determined by system inadequacies, e.g., frequent failure of the new seal flush pumps, G26-G-255C/D, for the new formation water injection and booster pumps; Internal Corrosion in Formation Water line
Is there a procedure for screening failures and incidents to determining when root cause failure analysis should be applied? Does the procedure include trending? Is there a common method for RCA (Root Cause Analysis) and do those doing it understand the methodology? SABP-G-012, A User Guide to Root Cause Analysis Guidelines and Procedures is available to the Safaniya GOSP. It is not known if this guideline has been used or adopted. There was an indication that the Reliability Group does get involved with RCA
What kind of technical support is provided by
Engineering and is it adequate?
Information unavailable.

The key finding from the Reliability and Maintenance Improvement area is summarized as follows:
• There is a significant amount of data available from SAP maintenance histories and inspection results to identify areas of improvement. There was no information available that this is being accomplished; improvement opportunities are determined by system inadequacies (e.g., frequent failure of the new seal flush pumps, G26-G-255C/D, for the new formation water injection and booster pumps; internal corrosion in formation water line, etc.).
Recommendation: A SABP-G-012, A User Guide to Root Cause Analysis Guidelines and Procedures should be adopted and implemented at the Safaniya GOSP.
