It is inevitable that decisions about upgrades, decommissioning, replacements, and strategy adjustments will need to be made throughout an asset’s life cycle. There are multiple factors that must be considered within this decision-making process, but sometimes, owners and operators do not have access to the knowledge or data required to ensure the correct outcome is achieved.
Managing Ageing Infrastructure
Future demands on the assets can have a significant affect on the original operating context. These demands can be driven from various external sources be it political, environmental or even legal requirements as well as immediate production demands driven from expansions or even decommissioning.
With ageing infrastructure, the environment plays a significant factor into the failure modes and mechanisms assets experience. In order to provide a regulated and proactive approach that will produce the necessary information and key data insights to support any future decisions, it is essential to have the correct management strategy in place. Asset management can aid owners and operators of assets in assuring integrity, maximised performance, and legal and safety compliance over the course of an asset’s lifetime by controlling the risks connected to the critical infrastructure.
