There are many challenges associated with maintaining the effective integrity of assets to improve operational performance and maintain offshore production levels in Brazil.
Companies specializing in offshore asset maintenance are predicting an increase in demand from 2021/22 when the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic are expected to be mitigated and activities reheated.
There is a new entry of players in the market for predictive, preventive, and corrective maintenance. Until 2015, this type of service was dominated by a relatively small group of companies. The understanding is that the emergence of other companies reflects a complete change in this situation that, in recent years, has suffered from the fall in much of the country’s industrial activities.
Good examples of asset integrity and maintenance are focused on current industry best practices, which have been developed over the years. Such practices note how innovation and technology can help shape the future of offshore maintenance.
In 2019 and 2020, with the oil crisis and the pandemic, Petrobras decided to hibernate platforms of lower productivity. Some units will be sold and others decommissioned. Platforms that will be hibernated will need to have appropriate procedures, for example, with corrosion protection. Both the new offshore units to be built, and those that will be sold, will have to be fully maintained until the destination is completed.
Based on these principles, SOBENA promotes the 4th Event on Integrity and Maintenance of Offshore Assets to be held on September 29, 2021.
It is a common fact that maintenance should be a priority from now on. In this webinar, we will bring together key stakeholders, including operators, regulators, supply chains, and industry experts, to discuss some of the key challenges facing the industry today and how we can use our knowledge, technologies, and expertise to find new, cost-effective and secure solutions for the future.
