The chemical manufacturing industry has not always kept pace with the rest of the refining and processing industries, due to the heavier emphasis on oil and gas-related regulation. Of course, as we know, this is due in large part to the massive, catastrophic failures associated with the oil and gas industry, and the refining and processing industry specifically.
So, what about the chemical manufacturers who have been left to handle their asset integrity management programs themselves? Well, for one, API codes and standards are catching up to this misstep and will soon be applying the same standards that refining and processing plants adhere to, to chemical plants. Don't worry though! That's what companies like Versa exist for. We are experts in developing asset integrity management programs, as well as handling NDT and other related inspection work. We also offer differing solutions depending on budget and each facility’s unique needs. Finally, we understand that chemical manufacturers are very different from other refining and processing plants as the feedstocks and chemicals can be proprietary. Thereby making the creation of CCDs quite difficult. Which is precisely why we employ several of the greatest minds in the industry to ensure your facility can go above and beyond the soon to be required codes and standards. Not only improving the safety of your facility, but the efficiency as well.
