Why does your choice matter?
The costs associated with unplanned shutdowns in the oil and gas industry have been cited to be between $38 to $88 million USD a year on average. In 2016, the oil and gas industry saw 29 accidents where a total of 50 lives were lost, averaging almost two fatalities per plant incident. The types of equipment used in these industries may vary from pipelines to pressure equipment to electrical equipment. These all have in common that fatigue cracks, corrosion, and other deterioration processes that can be spotted on the instruments do not necessarily symbolize damage or a need for maintenance, making it more difficult to assess when and where attention is required. This is where a well-integrated and effective AIM solution can help your business thrive in terms of safety and proper asset function.
