From Electrification to Digitalisation, Are We Doing Enough About Cyber Safety in O&G?

In the past, cyber-attacks have been confined within enterprises and homes with incidents mostly occurring in IT systems. Today, the nature of the threat has evolved. “Advanced threats” are not just hard to detect, they are also targeting at Industrial Control Systems (ICS), or SCADA platforms, or Operation Technologies (OT).

  • What are the general landscapes and trends of cyber security today?
  • How do we illustrate and persuade management the importance and ROI in cyber safety?
  • What are the practical and actionable considerations to safeguard critical IT and OT assets in Oil & Gas operations?

Identification of a Good Fabricator for Topside Module

Fabrication plays an important role in an EPCIC project. An unreliable fabricator could cause a disaster; therefore comprehensive review is an important requirement to select a good fabricator.

Fabrication cost constitutes about 30%-45% of the total cost of EPCIC for both offshore and onshore projects. In view of the high fabrication cost, it is important the fabricator evaluation takes fabrication cost into consideration too. Specifically, Chinese fabricators are equipped with the latest technologies for steel structure fabrication and they can provide significant cost saving of around 10%-20% from the total EPCIC cost. However, how do you ensure the safety & quality is not compromised while saving cost?

This paper aims to outline both non-technical and technical requirements to identify good fabricator for topside module. It supports the Oil and Gas Companies decision-making process with respect to safety enhancement and quality assurance.

3.30pm Afternoon Tea Break
3.45pm Masterclass:

Determining Spares Criticality through Understanding of Risks

The need to strike the right balance between reliability and quality of supply, capital and operational expenditure for your asset management regimes is critical to maintaining safety and profitability. A reliability-based approach to managing systems is common, but does not enable the understanding of consequence failure, human error and the risks that these present to operations.

Which brings us to the question: How can your risk-based approach be optimised to assist the management of critical spares and maintenance?

Through this interactive masterclass, you will:

  • Understand how risks arise and how they are controlled;
  • Identify the relative importance of equipment in the controlling of risks;
  • Develop an understanding of the way equipment could fail, the likelihood of its failure, barriers that can be implemented and the impact of that failure;
  • Examine the condition of the asset, and;
  • Develop an understanding of cost-benefit analyses to determine the management of spares.

Dr Sukhy Barhey, Director, BMT
