Offshore structures do degrade while in-service due to deficiencies from original fabrication, corrosion or due to other different causes of degradation. The complex, extensive corrosion and fatigue risks to offshore structures in sea environment have considerable impact in inspection planning. The practical interpretation of risk-based management principles and the use of the most appropriate techniques are of great practical significance to the operators of Offshore Platforms. API RP 580 and API Publication 581, 2000 Edition- Risk Based Inspection Base Resource Document are discussed during the course. RBI utility is based on the premise that a few vital area of offshore platform contribute a majority of the risk. To alleviate the risk level, more and more companies, since the last decade, have adopted risk based inspection (RBI) methodology to reduce risk and to improve cost benefits
SIM and Fitness-for-Service (FFS) assessments are quantitative engineering evaluation performed to determine the structural integrity of in-service systems such as offshore platform, containing a flaw or damage. The SIM &FFS help engineers to make run-repair-replace decisions. Technically sound fitness-for-service assessment procedure ensure life prediction, and to help optimize maintenance and operation of existing facilities. FFS is an integration of three disciplines; these are materials, inspection, and mechanical analysis.
This course delves on applied RBI methodology &SIM (Structural Integrity Management) in order to optimize the inspection& maintenance strategy of Offshore Platforms. All of the above will be presented in connection with the related codes and standards.
Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:
Award an internationally recognized certificate(s) for each delegate on completion of training.
The training course will be highly participatory and the course leader will present, guide and facilitate learning, using a range of methods including formal presentation, discussions, sector-specific case studies and exercises. Above all, the course leader will make extensive use of real-life case examples in which he has been personally involved. You will also be encouraged to raise your own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using your own analysis and experiences. Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available on daily basis to examine the effectiveness of delivering the course.
