Physical Asset Verification of 7 Offshore Sites

Project goal

To update the Asset Register with accurate and verified data that was captured in the field for the purposes of safety assurance and optimised materials and maintenance management.

Client:

Super Major - Oil and Gas Operator

Duration:

6 months

Why Add Energy Were Contracted

The client faced the following challenges:

  • Missing and inaccurate data in the existing Asset Register
  • Unable to source the correct parts due to name plate data missing
  • Wasting money ordering parts that were incorrect or obsolete
  • No assurance that all equipment was accounted for and therefore being managed or maintained
  • Request from corporate to execute an audit within a short time frame on 7 assets and not enough resources to liquidate the work simultaneously

What We Did

  • Conducted a Physical Asset Verification of 52,000 equipment tags, across 7 sites simultaneously to verify asset existence and collect key information using our ePAV™ app to streamline the process
  • Collected name plate data to be able to develop Bill of Materials (BoMs)
  • Red-line mark up of engineering drawings to define changes that were to be implemented
  • Prepared CMMS load sheets for implementation into the CMMS

Add Energy’s Findings

  • Add Energy found an additional 14,352 tags that were missing from the clients CMMS and engineering drawings
  • 82% of the name plate data was missing from the CMMS
  • Identified missing Safety Critical Equipment from existing CMMS

The Deliverables

  • CMMS upload sheets with new and verified tags, and their critical attributes for direct implementation into the CMMS
  • Red-lined as-built drawings, detailing the changes (e.g. additional equipment, changes to tag numbers, equipment that has been decommissioned) for the client to update
  • An independent “Valve Register”

The Benefits

  • Assurance that what is on site is reflected accurately in the CMMS and therefore can be managed appropriately to mitigate risk, assure reliability and optimise costs
  • All safety, production and environmentally critical equipment are accounted for and can be managed to reduce exposure to risk
  • Achieved audit requirements on time
  • Correct name plate data is now available in the CMMS for BoMs to be developed and the correct spares to be purchased
  • An independent register including all valves on site will enable a simpler and more efficient approach to routine maintenance, such as greasing, as well as tracking of “locked-open” and “locked-closed” valves, which is critical for managing the safety and integrity of the assets
