Asset Management

Energy and resources companies are under tremendous pressure to achieve operational excellence and responsibly extract the maximum value from their resources. Whether in Oil & Gas, Mining, or Petrochemical, your focus is on mitigating risks, effective investment of capital, timely construction and commissioning of assets, and efficient delivery of new production to the market. Operating in a heavily regulated industry, compliance pressures demand rigor and discipline in managing corporate records from well files, to asset information, engineering documents, transmittals, leases or contracts – to name a few. Our solutions can optimize your business processes, and bring control to the overwhelming amount of information that powers your organization.

  • Maintenace Audits

    Provides auditing of complete Maintenance Management system of key elements to determine gaps and improvement opportunities against either ISO 55000 / PAS 55 or corporate standards. Our audits offer clients with a roadmap of improvement opportunities.
  • Maintenace Benchmarking

    Benchmarking and competitive analysis shows where the pockets of excellence are, which can then be built on to improve the areas that are not performing quite as well. True benchmarking is comparing one organisation or asset against another which is widely recognised as the best within that industry.

    The difficulties in this arise in being able to identify the best organisation or asset and also in being able to gain entry into that organisation or asset to be able to witness and document what they are doing that is better. We provide benchmarking studies to determine the effectiveness of your current maintenance strategy & philosophy.
  • Maintenace Strategy Development

    We help our clients prioritize which assets require detailed maintenance assessment and which should simply receive OEM based maintenance in the form of maintenance philosophy & strategy development.
  • Reliability Improvement Program

    To remain competitive and maximise the economic life of a field, resources must be used in the most efficient and effective ways. Those resources include both the financial and human resources of the company. Loss usually has the narrow focus of production loss but man hours and Opex losses can be tracked through the CMMS. Revisiting the same malfunctions reduces the Opex and man hours available for scheduling backlog or improvement work. We are able to provide comprehensive reviews of your existing facilities in order to identify quick wins and a long term sustainable reliability improvement program.
  • Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)

    FMECA studies carried out early in the design phase are used to identify failure modes and reliability issues that may cause performance weaknesses or costly design changes after operation has commenced. A FMECA study considers each mode of failure of every component of a system and determines the effects on system operation of each failure mode in turn. Failure modes are classified in relation to likelihood of the failure occurring and severity of the effects of the failure. Likelihood in combination with severity will generate a criticality rating for each failure mode which is based upon a predetermined risk matrix. We support our clients with FMECA workshops using the best in class software tools and experienced consultants.
  • Reliability, Availability, Maintainability modelling/ RAM studies

    A Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) model can be a key strategic tool. RAM models can be developed for brownfield sites and at any stage during the operate phase of the life cycle. If there is the opportunity though to develop it during the design process it can be used to maximise reliability and availability in the design. The information can also be used to develop life cycle costs for the plant. This type of information is critical when comparing alternative design options or equipment choices. The cheapest design option to purchase may have significantly increased operate and maintain costs.

    If the RAM model is developed during the design phase, the manufacturers’ data for equipment reliability and maintenance schedules should be used. When decisions are to be made on design options for equipment choices the RAM model will be invaluable tool to trial the options and be able to be used as justification for the decision made. We are able to model your facilities in order to optimize both reliability and lifecycle cost.
  • Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) planning

    RCM is an industrial improvement approach, focused on identifying and establishing the operational, maintenance and capital improvement strategies that will manage the risks of equipment failure most effectively. With the application of RCM principles, maintenance is evaluated and applied in a rational manner that provides the most value to a system’s owner/ manager/ operator. We can discuss your specific requirements in regards to RCM and confirm the likely cost benefit of such a program for your facilities.
  • Spare Parts Modelling

    Having the right spares and materials available when needed, to perform both planned and unplanned maintenance, is clearly essential to reliability and safety. We analyze and model our clients spares requirements and holdings , resulting in:
    • Improved service levels
    • Mitigation of production risks
    • Enhanced reliability and safety of assets and infrastructures
    • Improved operational and plant efficiencies
    • Optimized maintenance supply chain processes
    • Reduced costs
  • CMMS Development & Optimisation

    The purpose of CMMS is to improve utilization and performance of a company’s assets, reduce capital costs, reduce asset-related operating costs, extend asset life and ultimately improve ROA. Ensuring the resources required to create and maintain a CMMS are optimal will prevent inaccuracies of information and inappropriate maintenance applications, reducing workload and eliminating frustration. There are 5 distinctive but inter related sections to a new CMMS build. When maintaining an existing CMMS any section can be isolated, then re-introduced seamlessly with minimal operational impact.

    The sections are:
    • Asset Register

Safety, Risk & Resilience

Infrastructure such as buildings, transportation, power plants and oil refineries have lifecycles that span decades, creating significant data challenges for EPCM contractors and the owner-operators. Throughout the lifecycle of a project or asset – from design, construction and handover to operations – the number of assets that need to be documented, exchanged and referenced is enormous. Finding the right solution that can help improve secure collaboration and control between all stakeholders, while increasing compliance, mitigating risk, and is integrated with core processes can be a challenge.

To capture the greatest value from their information and investments, agile companies are seeking greater integration between their engineering document management solution and other core business processes and systems across their organization.


    Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) is a technique to evaluate risk arising from a “hazardous” activity. The technique is being applied to installations onshore under the CIMAH regulations and offshore facilities. QRA addresses potential hazards arising from activities on or associated with the installation, or associated with the installation, or from external events with the potential to affect the installation, personnel or the surrounding environment. Main objectives of conducting a QRA are to demonstrate that the potential major hazards of the installation have been identified and examined as to the potential threat they pose to installation, its personnel and the environment.

    “Major hazard installation” means an industrial activity which produces, processes, handles, uses, disposes of or stores, whether permanently or temporarily, one or more hazardous substances or a category or categories of hazardous substances in a quantity or quantities which is or are equal to or exceed the threshold quantity, or an industrial activity which is so determined by the Director General of Department of Occupational, Safety and Health (DOSH). Non-MHI is vice versa.

    For CIMAH / COMAH / Safety Case, the regulatory compliance includes:
    • Notification of industrial activity to the Department of Occupational Safety and Health
    • Preparation of CIMAH / COMAH / Safety Case
    • Preparation of Onsite Emergency Response Plan
    • Preparation of Offsite Contingency Plan
    • Development of Health, Safety and Environmental Management System

    For Demonstration of Safe Operation (DOSO) for Non-MHI, the manufacturer must provide evidence including producing documents to demonstrate that:
    • Possible major accidents have been identified
    • Adequate steps and actions have been taken to prevent any major accident or minimise its consequences to the surrounding environment and population
    • Site personnel are provided with information, training and proper equipment to ensure their safety
    • An onsite emergency plan has been prepared and kept up to date

    In order to prevent the occurrence of occupational diseases, poisoning or adverse health effects, the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) has gazetted the Use and Standards of Exposure of Chemicals Hazardous to Health (USECHH) Regulations 2000.

    Our services include:
    • Preparation of Chemical Register
    • Testing, examination and inspection of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV)
    • Translation of MSDS / CSDS
    • USECHH Awareness Training
    • Development of Chemical Safety Data Sheets

    Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) is a term referencing a variety of techniques in identifying hazards and hazard scenarios. The PHA is a proactive attempt by chemical process operations to understand what can go wrong, how likely it is to go wrong and what steps are necessary to prevent or mitigate undesired consequences.

    We can provide a full range of PHA services, using a variety of techniques:
    • Hazard and Operability Studies (HAZOP)
    • Hazard Identification (HAZID)
    • Fire Protection Analysis (FIREPRAN)
    • As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP)
    • What-if
    • Checklists
    • Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
    • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
    • Event Tree Analysis (ETA)

    An integrated Evacuation, Escape and Rescue (EER) analysis can be performed to satisfy the concerns of offshore operators and the regulatory requirements for the offshore safety legislation. These studies are intended to ensure that appropriate arrangements are in place should personnel be required to leave the installation in the event of an emergency.

    The primary objectives of an EER analysis include:
    • Define potential hazards for an installation and its Temporary Refuge (TR) facility
    • Evaluate the adequacy of specified escape routes to and from the TR and muster points under identified emergency situations
    • Assess the integrity of the TR
    • Assess the adequacy and survivability of the EER provision (TEMPS / life raft, etc) including planning and communications structure under identified emergency conditions

    An emergency is defined as a serious situation or occurrence that happens unexpectedly and demands immediate action. It is of fundamental importance that emergency management takes into account provision of sufficient emergency systems, information, clarification of roles and responsibilities as well as the need for clear leadership and guidance. When an emergency occurs, your business will be interrupted. Therefore, it is essential to have appropriate plans and trained personnel to overcome the situation in an effective and proper manner.

    We provide our diverse clients with services that include:
    • Gap Analysis – This pre-audit program identifies gaps in management systems and highlights areas that need improvement.

    Companies that handle specific highly hazardous chemicals in excess of threshold quantities must comply with OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) standard, 29 CFR 1910.119 and EPA’s Risk Management Program (RMP) rule, 40 CFR Part 68 and implement a series of management systems to reduce the risk of catastrophic failure of systems utilizing highly hazardous chemicals. EDMS offers a complete range of process safety technology and process safety management services.

    The Hazards and Effects Management Process (HEMP) involved in the chemical process industry is a methodology to ensure consistency in risk mitigation. In a nutshell, HEMP defines the manner in which the risk of injury to personnel, or damage to assets, environment, or reputation, is managed to As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP). It is simply a systematic method of identifying hazards, assessing risk, putting controls in place to safeguard against the risks and defining recovery measures should an accident happen.

    Part of the Safety Case process involves the validation of Safety Critical Elements. We can support you with the following using Bow Tie software tool and comprehensive methodologies:
    • Defining the Safety Critical Elements and associated Performance Standards
    • Producing the Scope of Validation for agreement by the Regulatory Authority (a pre-requisite for submitting a Safety Case)
    • Producing a “Written Scheme of Validation / Verification” detailing precise validation steps to be performed
    • Defining the function testing and maintenance requirements for Safety Critical Elements required to meet the pre-defined Performance Standards for incorporation into the Preventive Maintenance System (PMS)

    Sound Safety Management System (SMS) involves effective implementation of a comprehensive system of management controls which deal with hazards encountered during day-to-day operations. Effective safety management minimises accidents to personnel, property and the environment, and it is a key component in any CIMAH Safety Report. EDMS’s aim is to facilitate the spread of “best practice” to clients in all aspects of safety management.

    Our comprehensive SMS services can be applied to audit, design, assessment & certification stages:

    Business Continuity is defined as maintaining the uninterrupted availability of all key business resources to support essential business activities. Risk Management is also about putting in place treatments that seek to prevent business interruption events (outages) from occurring in the first place. The objective is to ensure the uninterrupted availability of all key business resources required to support essential (or critical) business activities.

    Environmental Management Plan (EMP) translates the EIA approval conditions into action. The EMP document states in explicit terms what actions will be taken, what measures will be instituted, what structures will be built, what will be installed, when the actions will be executed, etc. for the project activities to be compliant with the EIA approval conditions. The EMP is a concrete plan of action which is explicit, illustrative, action-oriented, time-bound and definitive. The EMP is by nature, a living document which needs to be revised and updated when there exist certain circumstances which demand changes to be made.

    The Emergency Response Plan (ERP) document is specifically developed to establish an effective management plan for emergencies that may arise. The ERP is designed to provide the related members with the information needed to respond to incidents in a safe, effective and efficient manner. This ERP was also developed to coordinate the personnel’s response in case of an emergency for this project.

    Penilaian Awal Tapak (PAT) or Preliminary Site Assessment is important in assessing the appropriateness of a proposed project at a selected area. The objective of PAT is to ensure that the proposed site is suitable for the proposed activity, and will be compatible with surrounding landuse and development plan / policies. PAT is applicable for all industrial & warehouse projects, including Prescribed Activities (where EIA is mandatory).

    Under the Environmental Quality Act 1974 and subsidiary legislation, premises are required to notify DOE or obtain approvals after approval of the EIA and prior to commencing operation. These Pemberitahuan Bertulis (air pollution control equipment) and Kebenaran Bertulis (sewage and industrial effluent) must contain the actual design information, including manufacturers guarantees in respect of emissions / discharges and be duly signed off by a Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) Professional Engineer (PE) for air and effluent pollution control equipment.
