Aging, but not Obsolete: Lessons in Life Extension
by Dr Kieran Chalk, Senior Consultant at Frazer-Nash Consultancy
In a climate of low CAPEX and OPEX budgets keeping existing assets operating safely and reliably is challenging but essential, requiring robust justification for any financial expenditure. This talk will examine lessons in asset integrity management and life extension from a range of industries and how they can be applied to physical asset management in the oil & gas industry. Topics covered will include the management of pipelines, electrical infrastructure and corrosion through to how engineering analysis can be effectively used to aid financial decision making.
