Oman Gas Company S.A.O.C. – Asset Performance Solution for Reliability Management – Al-Khuwair, Muscat, Oman

Oman Gas Company S.A.O.C. transmits and distributes gas to 4.4 million people and most of the area’s key economic industry facilities. To ensure consistent availability of its product, the company used Bentley’s AssetWise to develop a reliability and integrity program based on a digitalized, automated framework, reducing human intervention to avoid human fault analysis and improve resource effectiveness. The company needed a single common platform for reliability, integrity management, and maintenance for its assets, which are widely spread across Oman.

The organization digitalized, automated, and compiled all reliability and integrity data and management tasks into one connected data environment using Bentley’s AssetWise. The system consolidates and analyzes all inspection and condition monitoring data from manual and IoT sources providing visibility to condition degradation trends and critical health parameters allowing proactive actions to be taken therefore reducing the number of breakdowns. The system calculates reliability and availability for each asset and also generates automated weekly reminders to ensure timely corrective action of root cause analysis recommendations. Integrating handheld devices for operators to upload readings and receive alerts ensures all anomalies are identified quickly and overseen by the appropriate personnel. This digitalized system has reduced failures and improved reliability performance by 9 percent, representing significant value to the company.
