The nature of refining and petrochemical processing involves hazardous materials and a mix of process plant, storage tanks, pressure vessels, pipelines, pumps, etc., all of which have an intrinsic risk of gradual or sudden failure.


As witnessed with disasters in the UK and overseas, the effects of plant failure can be catastrophic to employees, the public and the environment. The implications in terms of corporate responsibility and public relations can be disastrous.


In addition to the obvious safety and environmental risks, failure also causes downtime, loss of production capacity, reduced profitability and creates preventable business risk.



Maintaining plant and equipment, particularly safety and business critical assets, is vital to continuity and management of risk.
