Verification of Ex Equipment

Project goal

To ensure that all Ex equipment on the platform is captured in the asset register, so that the equipment is managed and maintained effectively


Oil and Gas Operator


Offshore Platform


6 Months


Client Challenge

The client had no visibility of the Ex equipment on the asset and the critical information relating to the tags within the CMMS.

  • This exposed the asset to significant safety risks as there was no assurance that the equipment was being maintained
  • Unable to assign spares to the equipment due to the lack of key information
Client Challenge

What We Did

Add Energy conducted a site survey to verify tag numbers, make, model, Ex rating and location using ePAV™. During this project we:

  • Identified an additional 9090 tags not previously accounted for in the asset register
  • Validated existing Ex equipment and captured missing attributes
  • Assessed the condition of Ex equipment
  • Updated asset register to reflect the physical plant
