Inspection, Repair and Maintenance Training Course


The oil and gas industry is a prime example where the requirement to manage the risk of asset functional failure means controlling and managing the impact of potential failure mechanisms from time dependent, time independent or from other sources. As evident, the location of use of oil and gas assets range from remote desert locations to deep and remote offshore/subsea locations. The bases of ensuring ‘containment’ of offshore and subsea assets rests squarely with the delivery of safe and reliable assets, achieved through the combination of expert design, quality in fabrication and installation and operational knowledge based on the skills, knowledge and overall competency from any one individual and the project team at large under the framework of the organisation at large and its management.
