Asset Integrity Management for the Petroleum Industry


An Asset Integrity Management (AIM) program provides a backbone and incorporates design, maintenance, inspection, process, operations, and management concepts, making optimal return on investments.

This course focuses on the concept of AIM (i.e. design, technical, and operation integrity) in the safeguarding of the operational system. The approaches to reliability-centered maintenance (RCM), failure mode effect and criticality analysis (FMECA), risk-based maintenance (RBI), inspection of static process equipment, maintenance planning of rotating equipment, mitigate the challenges due to human factor, effective project management strategies, etc.

Targeted Groups:

  • Engineering Asset Management & Asset Integrity Management personnel
  • Technical Safety personnel
  • Engineers involved in maintenance and modification projects
  • Inspection and maintenance analysis and planning personnel
  • Project managers and project engineers
  • Technical discipline responsible personnel

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Manage assets in the petroleum industry in a sustainable and safe manner
  • Assess & control Asset Integrity of operational assets in production & process systems
  • Perform integrity management on the topside and subsea systems
  • Realize overall asset process in a systems engineering perspective
  • Use of adaptive technologies and techniques in engineering projects
