WHY 2ND ASSET INTEGRITY AND PROCESS SAFETY O&G CONFERENCE

As oil and gas and petrochemical sectors are capital intensive, maintaining optimal performance levels are critical to sustain profitability. Asset integrity and process safety are strongly interrelated and of significant importance as they play a key role in anticipating and preventing events in advance and recommend appropriate action plans for optimal performance. It is always critical to have safe and smooth operations of oil and gas facilities and installations, from oil fields and offshore platforms to pipelines and refineries.

Developing asset integrity and process safety management plans that utilize the best methods and solutions at optimized frequency while reducing costs and maintaining assets in their best possible state is the ultimate goal. However, the industry still struggles with attaining excellence in asset integrity and process safety due to critical challenges, such as the change in operating parameters versus design stage, material degradation, corrosion, fatigue and deviations from the fundamental principles of HAZOP.

In line with this, the 2nd Asset Integrity and Process Safety in Oil & Gas Conference, taking place on 8 – 9 June 2022 in Abu Dhabi, will bring together decision makers, industry and technology experts, and influencers to share insights and best practices on how to effectively manage assets to deliver value, and showcase the latest technological advancements and innovative solutions to tackle current and future challenges and achieve productivity gains while meeting safety and environmental standards.
