RBI methodology is an approach that is used for optimization of inspection efforts in a plant by identifying most critical process equipment and piping and thus focusing the inspection effort on the equipment with the highest risk. By applying the RBI approach, a solid basis for decisionmaking on inspection frequency, the extent of inspection, and the most suitable type of inspection can be established. The knowledge about the state of the plant and management of the corresponding risks can be further integrated in the overall plant asset (integrity) management. This course will provide inspectors and analysts withadvanced knowledge and skills in Risk-Based Inspection(RBI) based on the framework defined in API RP 580 andin-depth understanding of the calculations performed according to the API RP 581 for fixed equipment and piping. The course covers both the principles and guidelines for developing an RBI program, as per API RP 580, as well as details of quantitative methods and calculation details as given in API RP 581. Other than that, this enables the participants to understand the safety and economic benefits of RBI implementation in refining and process industries. It enables the participants to understand the calculation background and principles and help them use the results of an RBI analysis in optimal way. It also covers the standards development and technology improvements and help understand the links to other topics that are dealing with risk and safety in the plant operation. The course has been updated and from ground-up reviewed to the latest editions of both API RP 580 and API 581, editions 2016 (3rd edition).
Who should attend • Refining and Petrochemical Engineers & Inspectors • Individuals who are responsible for implementing risk-based inspection programs within the company or plant facility • Plant Engineers, Non-Destructive Testing Engineers, Materials & Corrosion Engineers • Plant Inspectors responsible for managing the integrity of ageing process equipment, pipelines, boilers and storage tanks; • Maintenance personnel, operations supervisors, and process specialists who are expected to make decisions regarding the suitability of equipment for continued service • Engineers and inspection personnel from the pulp and paper, oil and natural gas, and chemical industries may also find the course beneficial.
