Case Study INformation

Offshore Installations and an Onshore Oil/Gas processing facility


What we did

Completed an RCM study for the plant equipment. These maintenance plans resulted in an efficient condition-based maintenance program.


  • The negotiated annual maintenance expenditure (contract) was reduced to US 400M$ compared to an initial contractor proposal of 2,400M$, as a result of the level of work definition.
  • Resultant maintenance costs are $0.004/mcf compared to $0.04 to $0.05/mcf for other company facilities. A full 90% less. 
  • This work definition also allowed a major reduction in “typical” maintenance staffing plans
