Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Lower revenues due to lower oil and gas prices have placed equipment life-cycle costs under the Maintenance management spotlight like never before. Maintenance Managers are faced with the challenge to deliver the same levels of equipment safety, reliability and availability with smaller budgets. This PetroKnowledge Maintenance Planning and Work Control in Oil and Gas introduces the practical tools and practices that Oil & Gas Industries need to adopt to drive down their equipment life-cycle costs in practical ways.

This PetroKnowledge Maintenance Planning and Work Control training course emphasizes the most effective strategies, policies, tactics and practices that are needed to ensure the reliability, integrity and durability of the physical assets through their life-cycle by proper planning and control of the Maintenance activities.

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:

  • Failure and Degradation characteristics of Oil and Gas assets
  • Oil and Gas asset classification into the criticality matrix for work identification 
  • Failure and degradation of assets
  • Prioritization of activities and correlation of Organization Structural Domain with Work Breakdown structure
  • Schedule activities
  • Proactive Practices and Tools to Reduce Maintenance Costs
  • Failure Analysis to Focus Cost Reduction Efforts
  • Work Management to Improve Resource Efficiency
