In 2015, TotalEnergies acquired the company Maersk which owned a significant complex of oil production platforms in Denmark.
To standardize the inspection processes of both companies, TotalEnergies ordered an RBI study with a specific constraint: the use of their new digital tool Fame+Neo.
Nearly a year ago, Holis won the call for tender for this project.
What were Holis’ missions ?
First, it was necessary to redefine the scope of pressure equipment monitored by inspection. After several collaborative reviews, the number of monitored equipment increased by 20%. In addition to this, approximately 1500 safety valves were added (approximately 1500).
Then, we implemented a significant data collection phase in order to define the input data required for RBI calculations. We retrieved this data from manufacturer records, operating conditions, and inspection reports.
Once all this data was collected, it had to be implemented in the Fame+Neo tool to obtain the level of criticality of each equipment as well as the types of controls and the deadlines for their implementation. Then, we optimized the results from the tool to create real inspection plans taking into account the operational constraints of such a platform archipelago. We then coded them in the form of tables to be loaded into the SAP maintenance module.
How much data have you handled?
Quantity doesn’t matter, what matters is the relevance of the study. So we went looking for quality data wherever it was. Sometimes we had to cross-check, verify or calculate it, such as minimum thicknesses according to building codes. And you know what? After reading and rereading documents in Danish, we ended up acquiring some knowledge!
What is Holis’ experience feedback on this project?
In this project, there are 3 main experience feedbacks.
The first one was to transpose the results from the RBI study, which are actually action dates, into time intervals for the CMIMS
The second one was to implement new rules for using Fame+Neo. For this, we had to combine two different visions of inspection. The first one based on the residual life of the equipment, and the second one, an RBI approach based on the risk of equipment failure.
Finally, the third one would not have been possible without the use of our in-house applications. In fact, we had to deliver reliable SAP templates from the first delivery.
It was a pleasure to work with the Denmark team, and throughout this project we maintained a relationship of trust and we achieved our main objective: customer satisfaction.
We would like to thank the Inspection team of TotalEnergies Denmark as well as the dedicated team of the group for their constructive approach that led to such a result. We are also happy to have been able to work on the continuous improvement of the Fame+Neo tool. The #expertise we have acquired will be even more useful for future projects with other subsidiaries.
