IndianOil is equipped to provide world-class technical support for refinery turnaround
management system (TAMs). With a systematic approach to TAMs, it has developed expertise
in execution of shutdowns based on its experience of successfully carrying out TAMs
for over 180 process units in its different refineries for over four decades.
IndianOil is the only organisation in India that has an exclusive experience of
undertaking TAM of the entire refinery at one go, including all the process units,
utilities, off-sites, etc., all at the same time. Such an exercise requires large
resources in terms of manpower, material & equipment, along with a scientific
way of execution, utilising advanced tools, user-friendly software packages in multi-user
environment, effective communication facilities among the coordinators, stringent
safety standards, etc.
Software like MS Project, Primavera, etc., are used extensively for planning, scheduling,
monitoring and control. Daily status report and exception reports are generated
based on a number of criteria like activities due for start, activities due for
finish, effect of delay in completion of critical and non-critical activities on
shutdown completion schedule, etc. In the event of a delays or unanticipated work,
catch-up plans are drawn up to meet the overall schedule.
