Reliability Analytics: Using Weibull Analysis to Maximize Equipment Reliability

Reliability of equipment in the oil and gas industry is especially important considering the potential loss of production and possible safety and environmental impacts.

This webinar covers identification of potential failures, how to reduce the impact of such failures and finally how to identify the optimal time for maintenance / replacement of components using Weibull analysis. Attendees will be able to use standard MS-Excel to calculate eta (typical life) and beta (shape) parameters. These parameters can help the maintenance and integrity staff identify the cost optimal and time optimal maintenance interval.

Webinar Objectives

  1. Assist participants in developing an understanding of Weibull analysis to easily identify the best maintenance interval.

  2. Enhance the knowledge and skills of the participants in hazard identification and analysis and in risk assessment and management.

  3. Provide participants with practical and effective methods and tools to perform basic but practical reliability analysis.

What Will Attendees Learn?

  1. Delegates will enhance their knowledge and expertise in maintenance strategies.

  2. Participants will gain a sound working knowledge of the interdependence of design, operation, and maintenance on integrity and reliability.

  3. Participant will be introduced to the application of Weibull analysis to optimise equipment reliability.

  4. Participants will add to their ability and skills in maintenance scheduling and failure prevention.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is particularly valuable for petroleum industry plant technical managers, engineers, maintenance personnel, as well as for project engineers and engineering and technical personnel involved in plant mechanical maintenance, integrity and reliability.
