Credo8 RBI Software is ideal for managing inspection of PipeLines.

Introduction: In the dynamic realm of industrial operations, pipeline management plays a vital role in ensuring smooth resource transportation. With ever-advancing technology, innovative solutions like RBI (Risk-Based Inspection) software have revolutionized how pipeline operators assess and maintain assets. In this blog post, we’ll explore the impact of RBI software on pipeline integrity management.

Understanding RBI Software: RBI software utilizes advanced algorithms and risk assessment methodologies to optimize pipeline inspection strategies. It considers factors like pipeline age, material, corrosion rates, and operating conditions to prioritize inspections efficiently. By focusing on high-risk areas, RBI software helps operators allocate resources effectively and target preventive maintenance where it matters most.

The Advantages of RBI Software for Pipelines:

  1. Enhanced Safety: RBI software mitigates potential failures, identifying critical areas that need attention. Operators can address weaknesses proactively, safeguarding the environment and surrounding communities.
  2. Cost-Effectiveness: Optimized inspection schedules through RBI software reduce unnecessary inspections and minimize downtime. Operators can allocate resources more efficiently, optimizing maintenance budgets.
  3. Improved Asset Life Management: RBI software empowers operators to address issues promptly, enhancing pipeline durability and extending its operational lifespan.
  4. Compliance and Regulation Adherence: RBI software aids in meeting stringent regulatory requirements, maintaining a positive industry reputation.
  5. Data-Driven Decision Making: RBI software relies on historical data and predictive analytics for informed decision-making, assessing risk levels with confidence.

Conclusion: RBI software is a milestone in pipeline management, optimizing inspections, improving safety, and reducing costs. Embracing this technology demonstrates a commitment to environmental preservation and community welfare. As pipelines continue to evolve, RBI software will play a pivotal role in maintaining pipeline integrity and reliability.

In May 2023 having successfully passed (and exceeded) the external audit requirements, Credosoft continues to be certified as ISO 27001:2013 compliant.

With the recent issue of ISO 27001:2022, preparation is underway with the intention of achieving compliance in this revised and enhanced standard Qu4 2023 / Qu1 2024.

Based in Esbjerg, TotalEnergies Denmark is the largest oil and gas operator in the Danish North Sea with over 1,800 employees and managing 85% of the national oil production and 97% of the national gas production.

In 2018 Total S.A. acquired all of Maersk’s oil and gas activities, Maersk having been a Credosoft client since 2015 and initially using Credo V4.

The upgrade to Credo8 is now complete with all systems in Production at the end of Qu2.

There followed a period of remediation and hyper-care support window.

Headquartered in New Jersey USA, The Mistras Group is a multinational  provider of integrated technology-abled asset protection solutions.

As part of Air Products global deployment of C8, the Mistras team has completed the work required to produce PRD RBI reports using Credo Report Studio and RBI modules. Credosoft is currently providing user training in Credo8 and RBI.

A subsidiary of JX Nippon Oil and Gas Exploration (NOEX), JVPC has been involved in ongoing exploration and development,  including the production of crude oil and natural gas, in the Phuong Dong and Rang Dong oil fields located in the South China Sea, south west of Vietnam.

Following an upgrade of Credo8 utilising the Synch Tool and initial data migration, work began on the implementation of RBI and deployment of the Dashboards and Report Studio modules.

All systems are now being used in Production and this project is complete.

A new client for Credsoft and based northwest of Erbil, the capital of The Kurdistan Region of Iraq, TAQA Iraq operates the Atrush Field.

Earlier this year, Credo8 was deployed and recently upgraded to the latest version using a new Synch Tool developed by Credosoft. This tool assists in the comparison of legacy and clean template databases and creates scripts to assist in the upgrade process. It is a time-saving and efficiency tool which benefits the client and the development team at Credosoft alike.

TAQA also chose to implement the Dashboards and RBA modules. As at the start of Qu 2, this project is complete with all systems being used in Production.

With work beginning in 2022, and in addition to the migration of existing data, work has been continuing on the development of new functionality specifically for Air Products.

The project deliverables include the building of interfaces for SAP and OpenText and implementation of additional modules; RBA, Damage Modeller, Workflow, Dashboards and RBI.

First phase of this project is now nearing completion with power user training finished and a soft go-live planned for the end of March.

Following the successful completion of Phase 1 which saw the upgrade of C4 to C8 and reworking of the SAP interface, Phase 2 is now complete  and concludes the migration of RB.eye data into Credo and the full implementation of Credo RBI solution.

Headquartered at Grangemouth on the Firth of Forth, Ineos FPS (Forties Pipeline System) is an integrated oil and gas liquid transportation and processing system serving the central area of the North Sea in the UK and Norway.

Previously owned by BP and Credosoft clients since 2001, it was decided to upgrade their current version (Credo 5) to Credo 8.

In addition to the core software upgrade, Ineos’ additional modules of Workflow, Dashboards and Maximo interface were upgraded with bespoke development required to replicate some of the C5 functionality particular to the client.

Phase 1 is now complete with the site in production.

Phase 2 will be implementation of RBA, which is expected to start later this year.

Since July 2022 Oceaneering have been working with Dolphin Energy Ltd to produce RBI plans for their site in Doha, Qatar.

This project was completed in January 2023.

In 2022, Dolphin Energy  upgraded to the latest release of C8 and the latest iteration of Credo RBI, including the Pressure Release Devices module (PRD) which is  delivered as an extension of the RBI module.

This also necessitated a move from Oracle to SQL database and required the reworking of the SAP and SCADA interfaces.
