Impact Integrity Inspection and Reliability Effectiveness  Training

43% of failures in oil and gas industry are mechanical integrity related failures and even higher in refining.

57% are due to non-mechanical integrity related (management systems, operations, practices and procedures). 

How do we solve this?

The solution is to use ALL of the tools available:

NDE, Risk Based Methodology, Management of Change (MOC), Integrity Operating Windows (IOW), Corrosion Control Docs (CCD’s).  

The real question is HOW?

Risk Based Inspection (RBI), Damage Mechanism, Integrity Operating Windows (IOW), Corrosion Control Documents (CCD’s) Curriculum

Module 1

Qualitative Risk Based Inspection (RBI) (API 580)

  • Instruction weekly
  • Wednesday brain pokes
  • Fridays 90 minutes of instruction
  • Weekly exams and final exam
  • 9 weeks total (8 weeks of instruction and 1 week of prep and final exam.)

Module 2

Damage Mechanisms (API 571) and Quantitative Calculations (API 581)

  • Includes deep quantitative instruction in 7 different damage mechanisms.
  • Real-life scenario work problems to calculate on Wednesday
  • Explanation of each step during Friday’s 90 minutes of instruction.
  • 5 weeks total (4 weeks of instruction, 1 week for preparation and exam)

Module 3

Integrity Operating Windows (IOW’s)(API 584) and Corrosion Control Documents (CCD’s)(API 970)

  • The entire code is covered on both.
  • Instruction weekly
  • Wednesday brain pokes
  • Fridays 90 minutes of instruction
  • Weekly exams and final exam.
  • 7 weeks total (6 weeks of instruction and 1 week for preparation and final exam.

Who should take these courses?

Our training is designed to benefit Refinery, Chemical and Gas Plant Professionals including:

  • Unit Inspectors, API 510, 570 and 653 – Are given a VOICE and are able to influence management and peers to take new actions that impact safety and reliability and are able to use INSPECTION as a TOOL to make the plant reliable.
  • Process Engineers – are able to use Risk confidently to reduce and eliminate unforeseen down time caused by mechanical integrity failures.
  • NDE/NDT Techs and professionals – become more effective and more certain around finding damage because they understand damage mechanisms.
  • Unit Operators – see the importance of operational excursions as it pertains to mechanical integrity enabling them to communicate process induced damage immediately.
  • Plant Leadership – See how to move past the STATUS QUO of mechanical integrity and create a culture that can achieve zero mechanical integrity related down time.  EFFICIENCY – TIME BASED MAINTENANCE INSPECTION
  • Insurance professionals -Understand mechanical integrity really works and what a effective program really looks like.  They see new ways to help plants transform their reliability.
  • Sales Professionals – For the first time understand how Inspection, damage mechanisms, inspection technology, risk based inspection all work together and can better relate and understand how to assist their clientele!

The Impact Integrity Curriculum

֎ Qualitative Risk Based Inspection (RBI) (API 580) Instruction weekly 

֎ Damage Mechanisms (API 571) and Quantitative Calculations (API 581).  Includes deep quantitative instruction in 7 different damage mechanisms. 

֎ Integrity Operating Windows (IOW’s)(API 584) and Corrosion Control Documents (CCD’s)(API 970).

Benefits

  • Reduction of expenditure of time and money on low risk, time based inspections. Confidently USE and INSTALL Risk Based Inspection (RBI) and  reliability programs
  • Distinguish yourself as a TRUE subject matter expert – Pass API 580 with ease
  • Halt the erosion of earning power – Increase your earning potential – income cannot exceed  personal development
  • End resignation – Cause change and make a DIFFERENCE in the plant culture, safety, reliability and profitability
  • Use inspection to make plants safer and reliable not just catch problems.
  • Why do RBI’s Fail?  Communication!  Alter Culture and install an effective Management of Change (MOC)
  • Why do we fail?  We lose focus.  Putting out fires?  Learn what to focus on and how to stay focused.
