Risk Based Inspection & Maintenance Summit (RBI 2018) is the 2nd initiative in India and one of the few initiatives in the world to conduct a technical summit solely on Risk Based Inspection Technology. RBI will provide an effective platform for Inspection, Maintenance, Risk Managers, Asset Integrity, Operation & Corrosion professionals from various industries like Refineries, Offshore/onshore Oil & Gas Production, Pipeline, Petrochemical, CGD, LNG, Fertilizer, Power plants, Chemical and Process Plants etc for exchanging ideas, acquiring knowledge / information regarding existing and upcoming RBI procedures, related products and technologies. It also provides a unique networking platform in terms of interaction among professionals from various government and private industries.

The conference will deliberate on the state-of-the-art Risk Based Inspection Technology, Risk analysis, RBI implementation, Integrity Operating Windows (IOW), Leak Detection & Integrity Monitoring, Inspection & NDE Programs and Practices, Corrosion Management Programs, Asset Integrity Management, Engineering Evaluations and Fitness for Service (FFS) Assessments and various other related topics. RBI will provide an effective platform for Maintenance, Inspection, Operation & Corrosion professionals across the various industry, research institutions and academia for exchanging ideas, acquiring knowledge / information regarding existing and upcoming products and technologies. It also provides a unique networking platform in terms of interaction among professionals from various government and private industries. This two day event will help understand how RBI can be integrated with your existing inspection procedure for developing sustainable asset management strategies.
