Asset Integrity Management (AIM) in the oil and gas industry is a complex process that encompasses all the phases of an asset lifecycle from design to decommissioning and all these stages must focus on integrity. Asset Integrity can be defined as:
“The ability of an asset to perform its required function effectively whilst safeguarding life and the environment”
Good asset integrity inspection services are critical to our business since a loss of asset integrity can have catastrophic effects, possibly causing injury to personnel as well as economic, environmental, and reputational damage.
Asset integrity management solutions are all about the prevention and mitigation of unintentional releases of potentially dangerous materials or energy.
Producing high-quality products at competitive prices is paramount to maintaining a successful business in today’s ever-evolving industrial landscape. Oil, gas, and petrochemical operators are constantly challenged to ensure their facilities are safe and environmentally friendly and their production equipment is running smoothly and is available whenever required. In order to satisfy customers’ needs, operators are constantly looking for new, improved ways to ensure equipment and systems are available and operating as lean and efficiently as possible, whilst being cost-effective.
Asset integrity management (AIM) oil and gas UK offers the means of ensuring that the people, systems, processes, and resources that deliver integrity are in place, in use, and fit for purpose over the whole life cycle of the asset. It is a process that requires an optimized balance between resources and output; ensuring asset integrity management is well structured and managed is key to its success in terms of a well-run and managed asset and a good return on asset production output.
