Nihar Associates was employed to optimise the suite of Emergency Shutdown (ESD) related maintenance plans for our client’s oil and gas platform such that they aligned with the requirements of their performance standards, and maintenance execution constraints.

Nihar Associates successfully managed and executed the entire project, including the implementation of master data changes in SAP PM.


  • 300 unique pieces of equipment had their maintenance plans reviewed and updated.
  • Maintenance plans were updated such that each piece of equipment would be tested in the most practical way; either during the facility’s annual ESD, or during smaller shutdowns throughout the year.
  • New maintenance procedures were written for each new maintenance plan, and were written explicitly to facilitate maintenance execution and recording maintenance history.
