In many industries – such as mining, oil and gas, or refining – margin is king. Operators in these industries are at the mercy of commodity pricing, so they do not have as much control over production revenue.
In this context, equipment reliability becomes even more critical because it is one of the few operational aspects that operators can control. If they keep their equipment running productively, operators can better manage operational and maintenance costs.
Recently, one of our U.S.-based Mobil Serv field engineers contributed a byline to Hydrocarbon Processing on this very topic. The article explores how operators can build a strong foundation for their maintenance program, implement and execute that strategy, and why they should take advantage of condition-based monitoring tools.

The content in this article is truly helpful to manage operational & maintenance cost.
Excellent information on how to take care of industrial equipment, they also want more production, fewer maintenance stops, this article mentions a good maintenance program, involving all operators, thanks for sharing.
