The Mina Al-Fahal Refinery (MAF) is part of the Oman Refineries & Petrochemical Company located in Muscat Oman and was Oman’s first refinery commissioned in 1982. MAF has a capacity of 106,000 bpd and processes Omani crude oil producing, Mogas, Kerosne, Diesel, Light Residue and LPG/Fuel gas.
As part of its drive to improve asset reliability, MAF chose to implement the Aladon Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM2) methodology after a rigorous selection exercise. MAF appointed Asset Dynamics Asia to lead the effort and selected Ivara EXP as the tool for implementing the RCM2 analysis and integrating with the Maximo EAM solution.
MAF’s initial efforts were focused on the highly critical crude & platformer units, which are central to the plant operations. In total 26 RCM2 analysis were implemented comprising over 7000 action plans and 50,000+ indicators for monitoring of equipment health. By utilizing Ivara EXP’s unique capabilities, MAF was able to build and implement a comprehensive reliability programme for their assets and provide all relevant inspection and conditioning monitoring data in a single environment.
“We are extremely pleased with the service that we received from Asset Dynamics Asia, they worked exceptionally hard for us under a very tight deadline to complete the work and meet all our expectations. We are very pleased with the results and are looking to build on the good work implemented so far by extending the implementation to include other production units”. Reliability Manager, MAF.
