Minimise your shutdown durations, costs and risks.

For organisations in asset-intensive industries, shutdowns, turnarounds and overhauls (STO) are critical activities. They:

  • Are expensive – in the oil and gas industry, the direct costs can run into many millions of dollars per day
  • Are risky – the complexity involved in trying to get as much work done in as little time as possible leads to safety, environmental and work quality risks that need to be fully understood and managed
  • Have a significant impact on production output and/or customer satisfaction – critical assets are out of service and therefore not able to function as required

Managing the risks and costs associated with shutdowns requires extensive planning, preparation and discipline. A structured process for planning and managing shutdowns must be in place and followed. And lessons learned from each shutdown must be incorporated into the planning and execution of future shutdowns.

How we can support you

We can assist you to minimise shutdown durations, costs and risks by:

  • Observing and reviewing your current shutdown planning and management processes and providing recommendations for improvements
  • Working with you to develop and implement best practice processes for managing shutdowns, turnarounds and outages.
