Description

The shutdown of a refinery is costly, but costs are minimized when a turnaround team performs effective plant turnaround procedures. The process industry is also coming under severe pressure to cut costs with construction of larger integrated units and increasingly stringent environmental policies, putting older operators out of business and making turnaround operations the only way to ensure the integrity and physical assets of the process plants survive and sustain the life of the investment. Turnaround Management for the Oil, Gas, and Process Industries upgrades the plant manager’s project management skills to understand the importance of turnaround management in relation to the health of the whole business and be able to ensure the that the right framework, processes, and software are applied to ensure a high probability of success. The book is structured in a way so that it can be used progressively through the phases of development in preparation for a turnaround with each relevant section easily identified for quicker access. Specific to the process industry, especially oil and gas, petrochemical and power plants, this reference simplifies the entire lifecycle of a turnaround and provides specific examples of both successful and unsuccessful turnaround projects, making it more applicable than the many other generalized project management books. Identifying the most significant performance indicators and strategies to ensure that targets are met, Turnaround Management for Oil, Gas, and Process Industries is the best tool for a plant manager to keep the plant safe, efficient and running successfully on effective decision making.
