Mechanical Integrity Toolkit

Mechanical Integrity Toolkit

Facility owners and operators must work continuously to improve the effectiveness of mechanical integrity programs to promote safer, more reliable operations and reduce the likelihood of process safety incidents. ABS Group has helped hundreds of process facilities develop and implement cost-effective and compliant mechanical integrity programs so that facility owners/operators can confirm asset integrity, maximize return on investments through improved reliability and performance, and maintain their licenses to operate.  

With a proven track record of more than 40 years providing both objective and risk-informed insights to the Oil, Gas and Chemical sector, our experts have gathered the following information resources to help organizations solve mechanical integrity issues:

 

Mechanical Integrity in Oil, Gas and Chemical Facilities

Addressing Mechanical Integrity in Oil, Gas and Chemical Facilities
Executive Perspective: Randy Montgomery, Senior Director of Midstream and Downstream

What risk factors should facility owners and operators consider in the area of mechanical integrity (MI)? We discuss our technical inspection and verification capabilities, risk management expertise and approach to addressing MI in oil, gas and chemical facilities
