Oil & Gas UK launched new guidelines Thursday, in an attempt to minimize the frequency and duration of planned maintenance shutdowns and improve the reliability and safety of installations on the UK Continental Shelf.
The Guidance for the Efficient Execution of Planned Maintenance Shutdowns offers directions for all types of planned shutdowns including corrective, breakdown maintenance, inspection activities, engineering and construction work. Thanks to the new guidelines, companies can gain access to guidance on topics such as efficient maintenance shutdowns, planning and delivery, as well as resource requirements.
"Better management of summer shutdowns, when major maintenance and construction to bring new production on-stream are undertaken, is seen as one of the principal ways of improving production efficiency. Companies have been addressing this and a recovery in production efficiency, along with an improvement in production performance, is emerging. This guidance document will help cement and build on that progress.
