YRD Manager's
Message

On behalf of the entire conference and exhibition organizing committee, we would like to take this great opportunity to welcome you all to the 13th Annual Corporate Maintenance Forum. The event is sponsored by Yanbu Refinery Department in collaboration with the Saudi Aramco Corporate Maintenance services. The mission of this event is to gather, network, share knowledge and best practices to increase our awareness in the beautiful city of Yanbu for 3 days. Sailing under the massive sky engraved on it the event theme “Reliability is People, Process, Equipment and Design”.

Our event will bring you the latest insights from various solution providers’ experts within our company, JVs and international experts too, on how they define reliability and successfully face it and develop the best technologies in today’s Environment to achieve and sustain safe, reliable and efficient operations and maintenance.

The level of Reliability of any plant is always driven by several factors throughout the construction process. Moreover, investing in the original design will always grant a strong base to build on. Anticipating that a rigid base is built, learning from existing statistical history is another best practice to focus on.

As failures and unreliable event occurrences drive for investigations, they can clearly be concluded that there are three main root causes that fall beyond the design stage. People, the more effort placed on people performance to execute, the easier it is to do it right and harder to do it wrong. The second factor is the process, by monitoring our production within the equipment design limits and monitoring any process changes and adapt to them. Lastly, failures related to equipment, which can be minimized by researching and developing the existing equipment to meet the market demand and quality.

Saudi Aramco takes every path to increase reliability and reduce failures due to the above mentioned factors. For instance, we place a huge effort in creating and implanting the required Predictive Maintenance Program. Vibration for example is a core focus of one of the programs and on the other hand equipment temperature and thermography as well as motor management program.

Moreover, innovation and technology are vital tools to boost the plant reliability which proportionally increases the safety through skilled and talented workforce. Thus, safety performance relies heavily on developing a strong safety and proactive culture, and implementing a robust Operational Excellence framework in Saudi Aramco.

My 2018 ultimate goal to you is to get personally involved in promoting such a culture throughout your company. This demands embracing safety as a personal core value, using it to guide your reliable decisions, and setting an example through your own proactive actions and behaviors during 2018 and beyond.

In closing, we would like to advise you to make the most of this event and every bit of information delivered and shared. We never stop learning, and the best way of learning is by ask questions. Thus please do not hesitate in asking our subject matter experts and solution providers to clarify any vague. Knowledge sharing is one of Saudi Aramco’s operation Excellence enabling elements which we strive to spread and achieve.

We wish you a great time and success.
