Now more than ever, avoiding unscheduled downtime, reducing downtime, increasing uptime and reducing maintenance costs are crucial to oil industry players both upstream and downstream. Analysts predict crude oil prices above $100 per barrel in the foreseeable future, and demand just keeps increasing – in the next 25 years, the energy industry will need to raise production by as much as 50% to cope.
A robust maintenance strategy is critical to reducing downtime, increasing uptime, and still managing the costs. But there is currently a skill gap in the Asia-Pacific when it comes to rotating equipment maintenance, and operators need to ensure that engineers are fully informed of the latest techniques and the necessary strategic skills to support them.
The role of rotating equipment is crucial. Centrifugal pumps, turbines, motors, and other rotating equipment make up about 60% to 70% of the total machinery in a processing plant. With each new plant requiring an investment upwards of $400 million and annual maintenance budgets at $35 million, improvements in rotating equipment operations and maintenance can easily save millions of dollars. Potential savings from a lube management programme alone can be as high as $6 million.
All of the above – the critical role of rotating equipment in upstream exploration and production, downstream processing, and power generation; the large investments required by rotating equipment on a continuous basis; and the ever-increasing need to raise production levels – make a conference and exhibition on rotating equipment maintenance, operations and management both important and timely.
RoTech 2008 delivers real-life case studies by real technical professionals, which will show attendees how to
increase production through reduced downtime
reduce life cycle costs through increased uptime
manage maintenance costs and reduce problems through smart application of maintenance and reliability engineering strategies
Investing two days to increase production and save millions of dollars? Now that is a good deal.
CALL FOR SPEAKERS
We are constantly on the lookout for key industry leaders, experts and specialists to come and share their expertise and knowledge with an audience of industry peers to boost the level of understanding and development on maintenance.
If you have an interesting case study to share with your peers, we are interested to hear from you! Sharing valuable case studies and experiences is the best way to validate your practices and theories and gain recognition amongst your peers, as well as highlight the best practices and strategies in your organisation.
For more information on how to participate as a guest speaker, please contact Rex Ian Sayson at (65) 6749 7950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
