The objective of this paper is to present the digitalization of Structural Integrity Management for PETRONAS, via a web-based Structural Integrity Compliance System (SICS). Developed initially as a software application to manage the vast database for integrity management of offshore fleet, the system covers the substructure, topside structures, onshore civil and structural assets and ship-shaped floating structure modules.

The system is developed in line with API RP 2SIM, taking the SIM process of Data-Evaluation-Strategy-Program. The Data captured in the system inclusive of the design, construction, characteristics, inspection, foundation and metocean data required for evaluation of the likelihood of failure. While the life safety, environmental pollution & business loss data is assigned to evaluate the consequence of failure. After successful implementation of substructure module, the system has been expanded to capture data and evaluate risk of other types of assets, namely the topside structures, onshore civil and structural assets and at last, a module developed for a ship shaped floating structure.

A centralized database to manage the integrity a large aging fleet provides good visibility to the management in order to prioritize resources (budget, manpower and logistic) for inspection and maintenance, at the same time reducing the risk of operation disruption due to non-compliance. The system has created much cost saving through Risk-Based Underwater Inspection (RBUI) and risk-based anomalies repair.

SICS consists of the risk ranking sub-module and also other decision making tools including Strengthening-Modification and Repair (SMR) Toolkit, and Technical Limits Weight Control (TLWC) Tool. These toolkits are codified to provide quick decision making to management to evaluate the feasibility of SMR scheme or modification involving additional topside weights.
