Typical RIM program includes various aspects such as early stage planning, safe operational limits for the riser system, riser monitoring, condition monitoring, processing and analysis of monitored data, risk based inspection, inspection /maintenance/repair aspects, emergency response and periodic demonstration of technical and operational integrity.
The objective of this document is to outline the methodology for performing RIM and to supplement the company practices and the standard industry approaches to RIM.
The RP is intended to be a state-of-the-art document on RIM, which provides proven technology and sound engineering practice, as well as guidance, developed in close co-operation with the industry.
