Join us for the annual RAMPS Asia Conference & Exhibition. The conference will take place on 17-18 July 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
RAMPS Asia is calling for submission of ABSTRACT proposals on topics related to QHSE, Process Safety Management and Reliability, Asset Integrity including RBI, Topics for Life Extension as well as installing a platform for Safety Managers, RCM, and SIL, Enhanced Safety Practices for Operations, Engineers and Practitioners involved in the upstream, Midstream and downstream of Hydrocarbon sectors in Asia
Abstracts on relevant topics not included above will also be taken into consideration by the Programme Committee. The abstract should not exceed 300 words. Selected paper will be published in Petromin Hydrocarbon Asia magazine. Strictly, ABSTRACTS should be submitted on or before 30 April 2018. CLICK HERE to download the PDF call for papers
Industry Leaders are invited to share their views in the four Panel Sessions below:
Leadership Towards Superior Asset Management Performance:
Moderator: Kamarul Ariffin, GTS, PETRONAS
The past 10 years have presented significant changes for oil and gas companies: Global demand for oil is rapidly growing, but oil prices are volatile and had dropped under $70 a barrel. Because of the dramatic price volatility, companies are looking at their investments and internal operations to see what can be reduced, suspended, or deferred to keep the business running while maximizing asset utilization. Oil companies realize they must find aggressive new ways to derive maximum business benefits from their physical assets. Asset management is one of the core functions in the oil industry that can dramatically impact operational performance; it can improve operations productivity by optimizing production and making production more predictable. How do the industrial leaders shape and lead their corporation in asset management while maintaining a competitive advantage in this depressed market?
Closing the loop – Challenges In Achieving Real Improvements In Asset Performance:
Moderator: Ir Wijnand Moonen, MD, Sky Future.
With the arrival of ‘big data’, ‘robotics’, ’analytics’ and ‘machine learning’, the potential for making quantum leaps in asset performance is huge. Yet, in spite of the introduction of (risk-based) approaches such as RBI and RCM, the real level of improvement that the oil & gas industry has seen over the past decades has been very limited, especially when comparing its performance against that of other industries, such as commercial aviation. So, can the oil & gas industry really expect to gain the full value of these new technologies if the fundamentals are not fully in place? To what degree do we understand the roadblocks that have impeded progress thus far? To what extent is there a true appreciation of risk and risk-based decision making as drivers for improved asset performance? Do we really close the loop to achieve continuous improvement?
Technòlogy & Big Data In Asset Management:
Moderator: Mohd Azmi Noor, Senoir Manager, HSSE, KPOC.
Big swings in oil and gas prices can be expected over the coming decade(s). As a result, the addition of new investments and capacity will be very limited. All of this makes it necessary for both the Upstream and the Downstream O&G sector to be extremely flexible and quickly adjust production levels up- or downwards whilst keeping tight control over lifting and processing cost. A major contribution to achieving these twin, almost paradoxical, objectives are expected to come from big data and other ‘disruptive’ technologies. Some oil companies are looking to transform themselves into ‘digital oil companies’. The panel will debate: • Specifically, how can big data and other technologies help? • What has already been achieved ‘in the field’ until
Facilities Of The Future:
Moderator: SteveKlasnich, Process Safety Manager, Chevron
Upstream oil and gas operators have realized significant cost reductions in their businesses (some 15-40%) since the oil price dropped in Q4 2014. However, these savings have largely been achieved by deferring more costly parts of projects or reducing project scope, as well as by driving costs down in the supply chain. There is a growing opinion in the industry that these cost reductions may not be sustainable. With stiff rivalry from shale oil & gas producers, conventional operators would need to look into new facilities of the future (FOF) that will be cheaper to build and operate, perhaps 50% less than today’s cost. What could be the possible solutions? In parallel, how would be FOF in downstream?
PARTICIPATE AS DELEGATE
Comprising of in-depth technical sessions, engaging panel discussions, and networking opportunities, RAMPS Asia will serve as an excellent platform to learn from industry leaders from the downstream, midstream and upstream sectors. Directors, CEO’s, Technical manager’s, experienced engineers, decision makers and players in the in the industry to gather and discuss effective strategies for process safety management and business-critical issues across all sectors.
