Managing Integrity Operating Windows Through Inspection Analytics

Pinnacle, November 8, 2018

Video duration: 0:23:07

Webinar Overview

Many refining, gas processing, and petrochemical plants have already identified the need to define Integrity Operating Windows, but most are still unsure how to extract the most value from them.

Most "implemented" IOW programs have a near-term, immediate action focus — resulting in alerts for operators to bring the driving parameter back under control. Unfortunately, most implementations stop right there. There is often minimal consideration for the long-term effects of excursions throughout a given period — how should our inspection plans change to adapt to the excursions we've had?

If that wasn't enough, managing an IOW program can get messy quickly with limits driving hundreds of notifications per month. In this webinar, we will explore options that enable you to cut through the noise and ensure your Inspection plans can be delivered with confidence.

Pain points this webinar is targeting:

  • Levels programmed into process historians (Informational, Standard, Critical) or similar are unmanageable — several hundred or thousand notifications serves no one.
  • Alert rationalization — Is this real? What actions do we need to take? When should we take action? How do we know what to do?
  • Long-term impacts — Most alerts and management systems are structured to bring the parameter back into compliance with only a few actually measuring impact on the system itself. How does this affect the inspection plan?
  • Analytics — Current management systems are not great at giving up the information we need. Therefore, we have excursion analytics:
    • Duration (start, finish)
    • Base statistics (max, min, avg)
    • Rate of change
