Given the hazardous nature of onshore and offshore hydrocarbon production operations, technical integrity is vital to ensure safe, reliable and efficient operations. Technical integrity can be defined as:
Technical Integrity Management is therefore an integrated, cross-disciplinary management system for the measurement and establishment of the condition and status of various installation safety barriers. Typical systems that are included are process plant, production and transportation systems, and load bearing structures.
At AIE, we advocate a robust safety and integrity philosophy; a strong safety culture is borne out of the focus on compliance as well as technical integrity. These two separate, but mutually complementary aspects, are where we provide specific expertise.
Our Holistic Approach
AIE’s Technical Integrity Management programs aim to establish a holistic and standardized approach in the management of integrity risk. We accomplish this by connecting tools, competence and people to a best practice work process. And when necessary, we help to initiate risk reducing actions to aid our clients to achieve their desired risk level.
Our compliance assessment services serve to provide the necessary assurances that safety and integrity requirements are properly implemented and are, and will likely remain, fully effective. There are many benefits to this approach:
- It facilitates the assessment and benchmarking of plant systems, procedures and operations against established codes, standards, regulations and laws;
- It facilitates the identification of gaps, weaknesses, non-compliances and the subsequent development of remedial action plans which serve to improve functionality and operability;
- It provides an opportunity to nurture an organisational culture that embraces safety and technical integrity.
