Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

The Oil & Gas industry has been designing and constructing facilities for decades, and they have all been started up and operated successfully. Why do we need to pay special attention to “Facility Operability?”

The truth is that facility start-ups have been less than efficient and have resulted in months of delay before reaching nameplate rated performance. When planned and executed correctly, a comprehensive Facility Operability program should not result in added facility costs or delayed project schedule.

The term “Facility Operability” means the ability of an organization to operate a facility in a safe and efficient manner. Although this goal is usually achieved, there always seem to be things that could have gone better, or designed better, or designed safer. These troubles can sometimes lead to major problems or major events. In aggregate, they can be very costly.

A proactive Facility Operability system is intended to prevent various types of facility operation issues throughout the life of the facility.

In this presentation, the speaker will share the things of primary importance with regard to ”Facility Operability” ie. the experiences and learnings of almost 10 years of working with these issues.
