Many assets that are used worldwide are old and aging. More than half of Oil and Gas workers, for instance, work on installations of twenty years or older. So, managing the ageing of assets by carrying out effective Asset Integrity Management is vital for organizations to stay safe and compliant. Inspection managers and asset integrity professionals are further put under pression by the trend of budgets being tightened. So, it is a balancing act of maintaining installations throughout their asset life cycle, extending their life time while keeping cost at a minimum and without introducing non-compliances. MaxGrip has an extensive track record in safeguarding compliance and therewith the reputation of asset intensive organizations.

Risk Based Inspection Consulting

Risk Based Inspection Consulting

Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) is well-known and widely used in various industries to improve the operating expenditure cost (OPEX) and at the same time provide flexibilities for asset owners in optimizing long-term inspection planning and corrective maintenance programs.

MaxGrip helps clients to achieve these objectives by providing cradle to grave RBI consultancy services in terms of asset register data review and screening, Probability of Failure (PoF) & Consequence of Failure (CoF) assessments, risk analysis assessments & ranking, updating inspection plans with findings.

Our expertise in RBI encompasses a broad set of assets. Our proficiency in the domain of pipelines is comprehensive, including both surface and subsea pipelines, along with essential elements such as risers, supports, and spools. Static equipment forms another key facet of our capabilities. We provide coverage for a wide array of static assets, from pressure relief devices, tanks, and heat exchangers to piping and pressure vessels. Our asset coverage also extends to various types of structures. We have extensive experience handling RBI for both underwater and topside structures. In essence, our robust and expansive asset coverage ensures that we deliver value-driven, risk-based inspection services tailored to a diverse portfolio of assets.

Asset Lifetime Extension Consulting

Our Asset Lifetime Extension (ALE) approach delivers a realistic deployment program, which is justified by an underlying business case and will extend operations beyond the assets’ original design life. We can provide asset life extension assessments, identify risks associated with the remaining life of the asset, formulate the recommendations to safeguard the reliability & integrity for the intended extended life and also create a monitoring program which includes the clarification of associated cost.

  • Total estimated cost savings of more than 10%, due to the optimization of inspection planning and the risk-based re-assessment activities.

Asset Improvement Program

MaxGrip’s Asset Improvement Program is not set up to find the faults in your organization, instead it focuses on singling out the areas which have the potential to improve and add value to your bottom line. The first stage is an assessment which scopes the asset management potential, including building a roadmap for deployment together with you.
