This is an introduction course for the application of Risk Based Inspection (RBI) to safety critical equipment in onshore refinery, petrochemical and gas processing. The course will teach you the qualitative and quantitative RBI methodology within API 581 and API 580.
The following topics are covered:
- Damage mechanism assignment
- Probability of failure
- Consequence of failure and risk calculations
- Interpretation of assessment results
- Formulation of inspections plans
This training applies to the refining, petrochemical and oil and gas industries.
This API 581 course will help you apply RBI technology. Upon completion of the course you will understand inspection planning via probability and consequence of failure calculation in accordance with API 581. API 580 presents guidelines for developing a RBI programme whereas API 581 provides RBI methods to establish a risk based inspection programme. The exercises are based on typical pressure vessels, heat exchangers and piping.
The course is aimed at the downstream and midstream onshore refinining, petrochemical, gas processing industries. It is suitable for integrity, materials or corrosion engineers, non-destructive testing engineers and in-service inspectors, plant and maintenance engineers and planners; and associated engineering contractors and consultants.
