Facilities Risk Assessment Module


Facilities Risk Assessment Module

A pipeline system is an engineering marvel composed of thousands of complex mechanical components that ensure natural resources are safely and efficiently transported from well head to the consumer. Pumps, compressors, storage tanks, pressure vessels, meters, pig launchers, and valves are just some of a vast array of facilities along a typical pipeline system. Just like your pipe, these facilities are at risk of failure for which risk must be quantified and mitigated. RIPL’s Facilities Risk Assessment module is designed for integrity managers and engineers to keep critical assets operating without incident and the product flowing.

  • Risk rank all or a subset of your facilities components
  • Quickly determine factors driving your risk
  • Prioritize your maintenance activities

With thousands of mechanical components in your company’s asset portfolio, each with a different design, age and purpose, managing the integrity of these components can be a daunting task – certainly not something that should be managed in a spreadsheet – or worse – on paper. Just managing your inspection schedules and analyzing the results can be enough to keep you busy full time, not to mention all the other critical factors such as external corrosion, material stress levels, product chemical properties, external loadings, operating conditions, foundation, soil and settlement conditions, any deformities and mechanical properties of the construction material that you should carefully consider and weigh when determining which facility component deserves your team’s attention and when. RIPL’s Facilities Risk Assessment module is designed by experienced pipeline and facility engineers. The modules are based on industry standards, regulatory reporting requirements and our 20 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. The Facility Risk Assessment modules can also play a critical role in your Risk Based Inspection protocols as defined in API 580. With RIPL’s flexible and powerful modelling feature, any module can be easily adjusted to meet your unique operating requirements and risk tolerance.

Facilities Risk Assessment models based on industry standards such as API 580, API 653, and ISO 14224
RIPL’s flexible input model allows creation, mapping and importing of data from any data source such as spreadsheets, asset management systems, and NDT device outputs.
Configurable evaluation engine allows integrity program managers to define objective, well-structured rules for the analysis
Reporting and query capabilities allow engineers to build reports for operations and maintenance manager's review. The risk model and/or new design and performance data can then be updated with annotations to improve the accuracy of the model.
Self-documenting risk model feature, input model report, as well as data audit reports that show the quality of data collected.
Scenario capability allows an integrity engineer to copy input data sets, change the data within the copied data sets and then rerun the risk model against the changed data – without impacting the baseline data set and model results.
Provides the ability to compare and rank components by risk score and drill down into the risk drivers for the ranked components.

To install the Facilities Risk Assessment Module, you must have an active RIPL license. 

RIPL is a client-server architecture. A desktop application is installed on the users workstation. The desktop application then connects to MS SQL Database where data is stored and managed.

As technology changes and to ensure client implementation is supportable by American Innovations, it is always best to review any changes to the network, database, or client configuration with American Innovations support.
