Increasing scale and complexity of hazardous production facilities in petroleum refineries make it paramount to enhance the industrial safety and mitigate machinery related risks. That is why the strategy of operational efficiency improvement based on risk management has taken a special place among the strategic priorities of KazMunayGas - downstream operations. Even today the company is implementing a number of large-scale risk management projects. The projects involve the introduction of machinery health monitoring systems in the subsidiaries, since early failure detection, monitoring of failure development and timely corrective actions constitute a major safety task. The systems monitor equipment while in operation and maximize the design lifetime of the equipment. The paper presents the experience of the Pavlodar Oil Chemistry Refinery on transition to the Safe Resource-saving Operation and Maintenance of Machinery based on the real-time health monitoring systems.
