The cornerstone of plant integrity is ensuring that facilities are correctly designed, and operated and maintained within the equipment design envelopes. The profitability of the facilities is significantly impacted by the cost-effectiveness of inspection and maintenance strategies and programmes in place. Plant equipment is subjected to deterioration mechanisms and potential damage throughout their service life. Equipments inspection is very important in order to get the right information of the current conditions of the equipments. Risk Based approaches for managing inspection programs have emerged during the last decade as useful tools for managing risks associated with safety, health, environment and business. With quantitative RBI analysis, it is now possible to forecast inspection requirements, demonstrate the effects of inspection and facilitate the scheduling of inspection programmes. It is now widely accepted that the traditional time-based approach to planned plant inspection by competent person has a number of shortcomings. In particular, the use of fixed intervals between inspections may be too conservative and lacks the freedom to benefit from good operating experience. The introduction of goal setting legislation has facilitated a move towards risk based strategies, which focus inspection resources on parts of the plant where they will have the greatest benefit (IET, 2009). Throughout this project, RBI tool will be developed by using the provided guideline by American Petroleum Institute (API). RBI Tool frameworks for RBI qualitative risk analysis and RBI semi-quantitative risk analysis in this report are developed based on API methodology. The results from developed RBI Tool are validated by comparing them to the results of RBI from the industry. The risks between the two different RBI systems are different for the same case study. The different amount of information which is being supplied to the different RBI systems is identified as the main reason to the variation.
