RBI methodology is an approach that is used for optimization of inspection efforts in a plant by identifying most critical process equipment and piping and safety valves and thus focusing the inspection effort on the items with the highest risk. By applying the RBI approach, a solid basis for decision making on inspection frequency, the extent of inspection, and the most suitable type of inspection that can be established. The knowledge about the state of the plant and management of the corresponding risks can be further integrated in the overall plant asset (integrity) management. This course will provide inspectors and analysts with advanced knowledge and skills in Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) based on the framework defined in API RP 580 and indepth understanding of the calculations performed according to the API RP 581 for fixed equipment and piping. The course covers both the principles and guidelines for developing an RBI program, as per API RP 580, as well as details of quantitative methods and calculation details as given in API RP 581. Other than that, this enables the participants to understand the safety and economic benefits of RBI implementation in refining and process industries. It enables the participants to understand the calculation background and principles and helps them use the results of an RBI analysis in optimal way. It also covers the standards development and technology improvements and helps understand the links to other topics that are dealing with risk and safety in the plant operation.
This practical advanced training puts together a unique combination of 7 lectures and 10 workshop sessions. The participants at this training will spend 2 and ½ days working on specific practical assignments and case studies. We will dive deep into the issues concerning the RBI with the goal of solving specific practical worked examples and thus turning the training from theory to complete practice. The uniqueness of this format and the practical hands-on training delivery provides unmatched learning opportunities and unparalleled experience with the goal of enabling participants to acquire practical knowledge they will be able to apply in their organizations.
The course is full of required information. Now we need to analyze everything and perform the assessments and calculations internally to gain more skills in it.
The training was great, in just three days we heard a lot of useful information and I am sure it will be of great help to me in my work. Special thanks to Daniel Balos for all the information and knowledge he shared with us.
Thank you for a well organized training, excellent trainer for the training (clear, competent and structured) and for the material provided. I will review many of the topics in near future in my work!
This course was the best way for me to check my experience and weak points. Special thanks to Daniel Balos for sharing his impressive knowledge with us.
High level training, well-prepared material, professional lecturer
Very useful training for a non process specialist.
