Dear fellow integrity professional,

As you know all too well, integrity is not a new concept, nor is it particularly difficult to understand.

However, significant and persistent challenges remain in ensuring your asset and pipeline integrity strategy is a success both in design and in implementation.

During three months of in-depth research with the global oil and gas integrity community, we asked the industry for its views on this mission-critical subject.

What your peers agreed was that we’ve all seen enough flow charts, models and diagrams to know that building the framework isn’t necessarily the problem.

Indeed, their view was that most serious challenges often emerge only once you set about implementing your integrity plan - whether it be in an offshore installation or an onshore pipeline.

That’s why, when we asked them to identify the three critical success factors to making an integrity strategy truly successful, they identified:

  • Recognizing what makes the difference between a integrity strategy which looks good on paper and one which works in practice
  • Knowing which steps you can take - and which you need to avoid - to ensure that your integrity strategy becomes truly sustainable
  • And identifying how you really turn integrity management into a core value, rather than simply a priority

They told us that if we were able to create a platform which focused exclusively on these core issues, they would not only be interested in visiting it, but they would ensure their whole teams joined them.

So that is exactly what we did.

Through months of in-depth research, we worked with the global asset and pipeline integrity community to assemble a hand picked group of integrity authorities and to create the Asset Integrity Online Content Hub.

These authorities will cut through the clutter and share their insights into what’s really required to make your integrity strategy both successful and sustainable.

Each of the contributors to this unique online resource centre believe they have a story to tell, a lesson to share, or a case study to highlight which can help you achieve one of these core objectives.

So, if you combine this practical focus, with the level of expertise on offer, combined with an agenda which fits around your schedule – can you afford to miss this opportunity?

This essential online resource centre is 100% downloadable, and represents a revolutionary way of knowledge transfer and information exchange without you having to leave your desk - click here to find out how it all works.

Register today to make sure you are able to access the best practice of the world's leading integrity authorities.

We look forward to seeing you online.

Statoil’s step change in managing technical integrity: “The story so far”
Ingbjørn Refsdal

Statoil has recently undertaken the design and implementation of an extensive programme for technical integrity management on all onshore and offshore assets. This Technical Integrity Management Programme (TIMP) is a concept specifically designed to ensure complete control of technical integrity despite the challenges of having a wide range of information sources, lack of a uniform methodology to reflect actual condition of technical integrity and varying work processes, including roles and responsibilities. In exploring Statoil’s experiences to date on this journey, this presentation will outline:

  • Key success factors for the implementation of a complete technical integrity programme
  • Typical pitfalls and early roadblocks faced, and strategies to overcome them
  • Long term vision and future stages of the journey
Ingbjørn Refsdal, Vice President, STATOIL


Practical steps you can take to achieve asset integrity implementation success across multiple countries
Christian Perrollet

Asset integrity is not a new idea, and enough has already been said about the concept and the layout of a successful asset integrity framework to ensure that many companies have adopted similar approaches to conceptual design; it is in the implementation where the differences – and the biggest challenges – lie. This presentation will share Total’s approach to implementing a global asset integrity strategy in practice, and will include:

  • How you can develop a practical list of actions and deliverables to ensure success across disciplines
  • Steps you can take to ensure the consistent application of your plan in multiple geo markets
  • Measuring and monitoring performance across departments to maintain standards
Christian Perrollet, Senior Advisor, Integrity Management, TOTAL


A step by step guide to accelerating asset, pipeline and operating integrity in legacy assets
Jerome DeLaCruz

When any company acquires a portfolio of assets which have previously been designed, installed or operated by another company, the challenges of ensuring asset integrity success are amplified. Uneven integrity standards, a lack of reliable historical data, and evidence of underinvestment in integrity assurance are just the most obvious problems. Through its experience in turning around the integrity practices amongst a significant group of asset across the United States, ConocoPhillips has learned some valuable lessons. This presentation will shed light on how you can:

  • Fast track the identification of critical risk factors and take immediate action to reduce risk
  • Accelerate your ability to raise integrity standards in facilities with legacy issues
  • Identify and avoid the most common pitfalls in the integrity management of legacy assets
Jerome DeLaCruz, Asset and Operating Integrity Supervisor, CONOCOPHILLIPS


Managing integrity in a rapidly evolving business: An industry-leading best practice guide
Brett Doherty

Rasgas (A joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil) is one of the largest LNG producers in the world, expanding from producing 0 to 36m metric tons of gas annually in the space of just 12 years. The rapid growth required to achieve this output has required the equally rapid evolution of a fully integrated integrity management system. This presentation will share with you the lessons learned from this journey, and you will discover how you can:

  • Design, deploy and ensure the implementation success of a large-scale integrity programme in your operations
  • Overcome the key inhibitors to implementation success to ensure a successful and sustainable rollout
  • Build flexibility into your own integrity strategy to ensure it is able to adapt to the evolving demands of your own business.
Brett Doherty, Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Manager, RASGAS


Panel discussion: Overcoming the most common inhibitors to integrity success in your operations
Colin Dyer
Chris Houghton

Asset integrity success is inherently difficult to achieve largely because it is not a visible entity, this makes consideration of the equally intangible concepts of change management, organizational buy-in and achieving sustainability even more important. AI programs which are designed without these three considerations at the core are destined to fail. So what can be done to avoid this unwelcome outcome? What steps can be taken to ensure that you avoid the most common inhibitors to asset integrity success. In this panel session - speaking from their own personal perspectives - three asset integrity experts will explore the solutions which in their personal opinions can – and must – be applied to ensure AI success in your company.

  • Making change a reality: How to drive the organizational and individual change required for integrity success
  • Securing and maintaining organizational buy in to secure full support for integrity activities
  • Overcoming the barriers to sustainable integrity success – dealing with the challenge of maintaining momentum
Colin Dyer, Asset Integrity Process Safety Manager, SHELL
Chris Houghton, Engineering Authority, BP


Enhancing safety critical systems to achieve asset integrity success
Richard Gowland

Safety critical systems represent one of the most central elements of both process safety management systems and asset integrity management systems. But there is a big difference between understanding the concepts and ensuring they work in reality. The European Process Safety Centre, a member organization including ExxonMobil, Repsol, BP, and Total, has been pooling collective best practice on this important area of process safety, and leveraging his involvement as Technical Director of the Centre and his extensive experience in introducing and ensuring the functionality of safety critical systems to improve integrity management at Dow Chemical, Richard will share insights into how you can:

  • Successfully apply safety critical systems to asset integrity management
  • Use layer of protection analysis to protect assets in the same way you would protect people and the environment
  • Apply , develop and promote best practice in your operations
Richard Gowland, Technical Director, EUROPEAN PROCESS SAFETY CENTRE


10 critical elements your asset integrity programme needs to include
Dwight Johnston

Asset integrity as a concept is not difficult to understand. Maintaining the equipment you install in fit-for-purpose condition for the desired length of service is not inherently difficult. However, significant and persistent challenges remain in ensuring your asset integrity strategy is a success both in design and in implementation. So what can you do to overcome these challenges? And what do you need to build into your asset integrity programme to ensure their impact is minimized? Using Shell’s own integrity programme to illustrate his points - Dwight will share the lessons of more than 20 years in the asset integrity field, outlining:

  • The technical integrity, design integrity and operating integrity factors your asset integrity strategy needs to include
  • What are the principle implementation lessons learned from 20 years as an asset integrity specialist?
  • How you can avoid the most common mistakes made in the design and implementation of a successful asset integrity programme
Dwight Johnston, Global Asset Integrity/Process Safety Manager, SHELL


Building internal capability to ensure effective integrity implementation across disciplines
Brian Balmer

One of the critical challenges involved in making an asset integrity strategy successful is ensuring that the required capability is present across the multiple disciplines which integrity touches. This requires a fundamental shift beyond merely compliance to focus increasingly on the softer, attitude-driven behavior and competencies which will ultimately determine your strategy’s success. Drawing upon his experience at the heart of the integrity division of ADMA, Brian Balmer will consider the mechanical integrity aspects of asset integrity and outline:

  • Developing understanding of equipment function and risk
  • Using organization development to assist in focus on equipment risk identification and assessment
  • Developing the organizational know why and what to improve equipment integrity status
  • Looking to improving competence through communication and alignment with equipment risk
Brian Balmer, IM Framework Project Manager – Integrity Department, ADMA


Overcoming the Most Critical Challenges of Asset Life Extension
John Morgan
Nigel Robinson

There is a point in every asset's life where the cost of continuing operations outweighs the gain. As assets age and production profiles decline – project economics are squeezed. The added pressure on replacement and maintenance budgets can result in curtailed life expectancy or divestment.

But what if the situation can be reversed – by improving the asset utilization and implementing pro-active equipment improvements? What if the expected life of the asset can be prolonged?

Oil and gas operators around the world are actively tackling these issues. There is now a wealth of experience available to preserve the asset – well past its original design life. This presentaiton will discuss:

  • Practical steps you can use to ensure your asset produces with optimum availability and reliability
  • Proven, pro-active strategies you can use to maximize the life expectancy of the plant or platform topsides and structure
  • How you can create an environment for progressive life extension
John Morgan, Head of Consultancy and Compliance, GL NOBLE DENTON
Nigel Robinson, Vice President - Integrity Management Services, GL NOBLE DENTON


A step by step approach to building ‘inherent safety’ into your asset and pipeline integrity strategy
Richard Pocock

‘Inherent safety’ is about improving design to eliminate, minimize and avoid hazards and risk, rather than simply controlling or managing them. Whilst a laudable aim in theory, applying this concept in practice, across a variety of facilities in a range of operating environments poses a number of critical challenges. In this presentation, Richard Pocock – who has overall responsibility for the process by which Woodside Energy manages integrity on an organizational level - will share the lessons learned from its experience in successfully linking inherent safety and asset integrity in to the fabric of the company. It will include:

  • Overcoming the key barriers to success in effectively incorporating inherent safety into your asset integrity strategy
  • Changing your organizational culture to increase the visibility and corporate buy-in to successfully embed integrity as a core value
  • Steps you can take to maintain the momentum and enhance the impact of your integrity activities
Richard Pocock, Senior Integrity and Safety Risk Manager, WOODSIDE ENERGY


What works - and what doesn’t - in deploying an organization-wide integrity plan
Nabil Mourad

The Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operation (ADCO) spent several years developing its Asset integrity management System (AIMS) and the deployment of an extensive organization-wide asset integrity implementation plan, finally launching the system for implementation in 2008. In the two and a half years since, the integrity team has been focused exclusively on effective implementation, and in the process has learned a number of valuable lessons. This presentation will outline ADCO’s approach to both design and deployment of AIMS, as well as sharing the key challenges, and some critical recommendations for the way forward for the industry. The presentation will address:

  • Practices to ensure you achieve the penetration and realize the value you are looking to deliver from your Asset Integrity program
  • Critical success factors during design and deployment to ensure implementation success
  • How to face the most common challenges in asset integrity implementation
Nabil Mourad, Integrity Advisor, ADCO
