Minimizing the impact of production outages
Essential facilities in the chemical, oil and gas industries require regular maintenance and servicing to reduce the risk of unanticipated equipment breakdowns and uninterrupted operations. However, routine maintenance often requires temporary shutdowns to inspect and service otherwise inaccessible systems and components. And, even facilities that are well maintained can experience unexpected shutdowns and outages of essential operations.
Regardless of their cause, shutdowns and outages can have significant consequences for operators and customers alike. Of course, operations that are off-line are not generating product, impacting projected revenue. But the abrupt cut-off of production can also adversely impact related downstream operations as well as customers who depend on consistent levels of service.
Turnaround services are intended to reduce the impact of production outages due to routine maintenance or other unanticipated causes. An effective turnaround services provider should possess a broad array of technical expertise to effectively handle the complete spectrum of anticipated maintenance and service issues, as well as strong project management skills to execute and complete turnaround projects on schedule.
