Key components: Generic framework for predictive maintenance control based on condition monitoring of oil and gas facilities; Methods for aggregating information to support vital operational decisions and integrated planning; Collaborationworkflows and support tools for optimal planning.
To develop methods, tools and guidance to support the implementation of condition-based O&M strategies. Fields of application range from drilling, to subsea, topside and onshore operations.

Investigate Condition Monitoring (CM) techniques for offshore static equipment, namely separators, Safety Critical Valves (SCVs) and Heat Exchangers (H/Xs). Test and evaluate Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) methods for internal presence detection of offshore production separators, assess suitability of performing frequency analysis of Acoustic Emission (AE) measurement for estimation of valve leakages, and assess important factors around CM that should be considered in the design process of shell-and-tube H/X.

The goal of Integrated Planning (IPL) is to optimize the coordination of activities and resources in an asset to ensure that HSE and production is kept at a best possible level all the time. Traditionally, the various domains of an asset, such as reservoir management, drilling, operations and maintenance, all have their separate activity and resource plans specific for their domain. IPL aims to join together the different disciplinary or domain-specific activity plans into one general plan in order to optimize the use of common resources like logistic support and maintenance expertise.
