- PRESS RELEASE
Oil companies would be addressing delegates at the Critical Equipment Maintenance Summit from 17-20th February 2013 at the Al Manshar Rotana Hotel, Kuwait. The conference, organized by IQPC would be attended by top-level delegates from the petroleum industry.
Gianluigi Conti, Head of Maintenance, ENI adds, "In a brownfield the biggest challenge is assigning priorities while the vast majority of your resources are busy full time, fire fighting all failures that arise so that the biggest challenge is assigning priorities to the critical items identifying those to start with. After this you shall face the usual challenges like finding technical documentation and spares but this is another story."
Kuwait Oil Company, ENI, PDO, ADMA-OPCO, GUPCO, ADCO, Anadarko Petroleum and many more companies would be showcasing their technological innovations in identifying critical equipment and maintenance related activities. One of the world's finest industrial maintenance trainers Guillermo Ignacio Velasco would be conducting workshops related to risk management in maintenance as well as training a few engineers on the different aspects of business continuity planning of maintenance.
Especially after the Al-Rawdatain incident in North Kuwait last year, companies and top management have re-assessed the need of effective maintenance programs for rotating and static equipment like pumps, compressors, turbines, shafts and other day-to-day tools to reduce downtime which remains the biggest challenge to overcome for the Kuwaitis.
