IOGP Report 415

Reduce major incident risks by learning about asset integrity management

OGP’s Managing Major Incident Risks Task Force has developed this guide to help organisations reduce major incident risks by focusing on asset integrity management. It may be applied to new and existing assets at every lifecycle stage. The information presented within it is derived from good practices in mature operating areas where operators are required to provide structured evidence of sound risk management practices. Although this guide may be used by anyone who contributes to the management of asset integrity, it is particularly targeted at senior managers, including those from a non-technical background, who lead operating organisations. Use of the included question set (see associated OGP document 415-1) can help assure that major incident risks are suitably controlled at all times for all upstream hydrocarbon operations. This document also includes references for those who require more in-depth understanding of asset integrity management.

Includes Asset Integrity Question Set. This set of questions may be used to test how effectively asset integrity hazards are understood and are being managed. Supplementary questions or comments also indicate what good practice looks like.
