Heat Exchanger Bundle Threat Assessment Methodology
Thursday, July 15, 2021 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT
Presenter: Philip A. Henry
During this webinar, you will hear about how E2G partnered with a major oil company operating in the Gulf of Mexico to analyze over 100 exchanger bundles on several offshore platforms. A threat assessment and mitigation procedure provided a solution to the short and long-term risks associated with heat exchanger tube bundle failures. The foundational principle for the threat analysis is the quantitative risk-based inspection (RBI) methodology presented in the 3rd Edition of API 581, “Risk-based Inspection Methodology” and as implemented in the API RBI software, V10.0. Results from these analyses are risk mitigation recommendations with the goals of improving reliability of each heat exchanger bundle and reducing the risk associated with lost production due to unplanned failures.
