Abstract

Oil and gas activities in the northern part of Norway will be intensified. However, the reliability of the facilities in this region is unclear, as so far there are few oil and gas activities there. In order to investigate the reliability performance of Oil and Gas facilities in the arctic area, this paper collects the failure data from turbines, a critical piece of equipment in the oil and gas industry, to compare their reliability for northern and southern locations. The proportional hazard model (PHM) is employed to model the turbine reliability. A least square method is developed to estimate the parameters in the baseline function of the PHM. The evaluation results are significant for the oil exploration plan
