This is an introductory course for the application Risk Based Inspection (RBI) to equipment in oil and gas production. The course will teach you the qualitative and quantitative RBI methodology within DNV-RP-G101 and API 580.
The following topics are covered:
- Damage mechanism assignment
- Probability of failure
- Consequence of failure and risk calculations
- Interpretation of assessment results
- Formulation of inspections plans
The focus of DNV-RP-G101 is upstream, offshore pressure systems where escalating failure consequence are an important safety consideration, but with the use of appropriate data it can be applied onshore as well.
This DNV-RP-G101 course will help you apply RBI technology. Upon completion of the course you will understand inspection planning via probability and consequence of failure in accordance with DNV-RP-G101. This is the only published recommended practice for risk based inspection of offshore, upstream topside static mechanical equipment. The exercises are based on typical pressure vessels, heat exchangers and piping.
The course is aimed at the offshore and onshore upstream oil and gas production sectors. It is suitable for integrity, materials or corrosion engineers, non-destructive testing engineers and in-service inspectors, plant and maintenance engineers and planners; and associated engineering contractors and consultants.
