Abstract

Plant maintenance has been a discipline that has gradually evolved with the industrial revolution. For quite some time, it has been a “necessary evil” in production, manufacturing, and process settings. The changing business needs and industrial conditions have had various impacts on the maintenance process, particularly over the last few years. While some industries have inherent difficulties seeing what maintenance is all about, others have begun to add more flavor to the organizational maintenance practices. This article brings an overview of developments within the offshore oil and gas production sector.
