Reliability and performance of electrical plant is crucial. In the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, reliability and performance of electrical plant is a critical factor in production and processing operations. Downtime resulting from unexpected failures can be potentially dangerous and result in the loss of millions of pounds in revenue. In particular, UK offshore producers are operating their assets far beyond the lifetimes that were initially envisaged. What strategy should be adopted in these cases - maintain or replace? The papers in this volume are taken from a one-day conference event on managing electrical plant in oil, gas and petrochemical installations, held in 2001, with speakers from leading companies in the offshore industry. They explain the options open to companies and how new technologies can help with the decision of whether to maintain or replace your assets. Some of the participating organizations that produced papers were Shell UK Ltd., ABB Automation Ltd., Brown and Root Production Services, Alstom T&D Ltd., and more. The papers seek to establish key factors in the decision-making process; help the reader understand the impact of safety and environmental issues; offer practical advice on how to maintain ageing assets; and gain an insight into new and existing monitoring technologies.
