This session explains the importance of optimizing material selection during the design phase of a new operating facility in order to minimize failures due to corrosion during their operating life, thereby ensuring increased safety and reliability at a lower cost. See the successful journey of a team who implemented this change in one of Suncor Energy’s new In-Situ Projects, and the value it provided to Suncor. You will learn how the total life-cycle cost can be reduced by involving key people from Operations, Maintenance, Reliability and Inspection.
