The assured performance of oil and gas assets is key to obtaining a return on the significant investment required for exploration, production and processing. Both maintenance strategies and production losses caused by downtime due to equipment failures need to be understood at design time and onward, throughout the entire lifecycle of the asset.
Reliability, Availability, Maintainability (RAM) analysis allows you to simulate the entire lifetime performance of an asset in terms of availability, production efficiency and profitability. By using this well-established analytical method, you are able to predict problems before they occur. RAM analysis is performed in design and operation, from upstream oil and gas extraction through processing and transport logistics to the delivery of refined products to the customer. Armed with a complete analysis of a system’s performance, you can vary system configurations, maintenance strategies and operational initiatives to determine the optimum approach for your enterprise.
DNV GL has over 30 years of experience in developing the world-leading RAM analysis tools for the oil and gas and petrochemical industries. With a global user base of major operators and engineering companies, we meet the unique demands of the oil and gas industry, where users analyse and predict performance with assured results on a daily basis around the world.
Maros - RAM analysis for upstream oil and gas
Maros is an advanced RAM analysis (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability) tool specifically developed for the upstream oil and gas industry. It includes extensive features for modelling flow networks, maintenance strategies, typical upstream oil and gas operations, transport logistics and storage tanks.
Maros Lite - Reliability modelling and maintainability analysis
Maros Lite is a cost-effective and entry-level solution for basic reliability studies and modelling to represent real life scenarios, allowing you to analyse and improve production efficiency. It is based on the Maros and Taro simulator.
Taro - Refinery design and petrochemical plant process
With Taro you can model complex process plant systems and make optimal decisions on refinery design, operation and maintenance based on quantitative performance analysis.
Sensitivity Manager for design optimization and sensitivity analysis
Sensitivity Manager allows you to manage and investigate multiple scenarios to ensure optimum performance. Sensitivity Manager incorporates the Maros and Taro simulation engine, and is based on more than 30 years of experience assisting oil and gas companies to identify design optimization, maintenance strategy and operational risk.
Synergi Plant - plant integrity management software
Maros and Taro are part of DNV GL's asset performance management (APM) offering. They empower companies to forecast the performance of your asset, one of the three fundamental pillars of APM. DNV GL's APM offering also includes Synergi Plant for plant integrity management.
