This webcast will focus on the construction of a risk-based criticality analysis model. The model will create visibility of production impacts, as well as risks to environmental and safety performance, maintenance costs and the allocation of precious capital resources. With a clear understanding of how to construct your analysis model, we will expand our thinking towards the development of asset management plans aimed at mitigating the predominant characteristics that make each asset significant.
