Company : Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (Pte) Ltd
Application: Customer’s staff better equipped to implement effective lubrication practices
Key edge : Shell LubeCoach service
Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (Pte) Ltd (SPO) in Singapore is a leading service provider to the oil and gas industry. With a comprehensive preventive maintenance system in place for its equipment, the company recognises the importance of effective lubrication practices to improve and maintain equipment reliability and for the early detection of abnormalities and wear.
The company wanted to incorporate lubrication into its training programme to ensure that its engineers were aware of the importance of oil analysis in avoiding potential equipment problems.
Shell Marine Products was engaged to implement a training programme in effective lubrication practices at SPO’s training facility in Loyang, Singapore. The programme included sampling best practices, the importance of collecting the appropriate data when sampling and interpreting the Shell Rapid Lubricants Analysis (RLA) report.
Shell RLA is an oil condition monitoring service that helps operators to keep vessels running smoothly by identifying potential oil or equipment failures before they become critical. Through this training programme, SPO hopes to enhance its engineers’ expertise and knowledge in this area of specialisation and enable them to identify and rectify pertinent issues early. In the long term, this would help to improve equipment reliability and performance, minimise downtime and lower maintenance costs for the company.
