This handbook presents high quality reliability data for offshore equipment collected during phase VI and VII (project period 2000 – 2003) of the OREDA project. The intention of the handbook is to provide both quantitative and qualitative information as a basis for RAMS (reliability, availability, maintainability and safety) analyses.
Volume 1 is about topside equipment. Compared to earlier editions, there are only minor changes in the reliability data presentation.
Less topside data have been collected than in past OREDA phases. To obtain a reasonable population for presenting reliability data for topside equipment in the 2009 edition, some data issued in the previous 2002 handbook (4th edition) have also been included. The 2002 edition included data collected during OREDA phase IV and V (1993–1999).
The 2009 topside volume is divided into two parts. Part I describes the OREDA project, different data collection phases and the estimation procedures used to generate the data tables presented in Part II of the handbook. Topside data are in general not covering the whole lifetime of equipment, but typically a time window of 2 – 4 years of operation. Infant mortality failures are as a rule not collected for topside equipment; hence, the data collected are from the normal steady-state operating time period.
For those who want to exploit this issue and the OREDA project in general, the OREDA Steering Committee Chairman or OREDA Project Manager needs to be contacted. http://www.oreda.com.
