TÜV Rheinland is Expert for AIM

TÜV Rheinland Group recently hosted a two-day workshop on Asset Integrity Management (AIM) at the second largest oilfield of one of the leading oil producers in China, 11 - 12 May 2016. The equipment management division at this company has been driving the implementation of AIM in recent years to ensure that assets can perform their required functions effectively and efficiently through expedient systems, processes, and resources. The General Manager of the Division of Energy and Environment at TÜV Rheinland Greater China Industrial Services led participants in discussions ranging from process safety management to monitoring systems, risk management strategies and beyond. The Head of the Asset Management department also outlined the workshop’s strategic importance. Further AIM trainings for other oilfield stations are expected to be organized by both parties soon.

Ensuring asset integrity

The workshop featured several renowned experts and institutions to examine best practices in process safety management as required by the state administration on work safety guide, “Strengthening the Chemical Process Safety Management” (2013, No. 88). TÜV Rheinland used its on-site survey of the oilfield to highlight successful risk management techniques. Our reliability experts introduced the principle of Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) as a solution to the problem of mechanical equipment stability during oilfield production. We also laid out the benefits of Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM) techniques. On the second day of the workshop, a renowned international expert generated a lot of buzz with his discussion of pipeline integrity management and anti-corrosion assessment technologies. Meanwhile, one of the TÜV Rheinland instructors presented the latest developments in online leakage monitoring systems.

The workshop was an excellent way to draw attention to what is important for well-established asset integrity management. Furthermore, we introduced our competencies and readiness to provide those services.
