The AP-Canada Upstream Turnaround Database is a detailed collection of upstream offshore turnaround and shutdown data, with statistics from more than 150 unique turnarounds. These turnarounds are gathered from sites throughout the North Sea, Africa, the Middle East, the US Gulf of Mexico, Canada, and Southeast Asia.
Measuring and tracking turnaround and shutdown performance is essential for long-term operational success. The AP-Canada Upstream Turnaround Database contains information on planned and actual turnaround and shutdown outcomes, key characteristics, and planning and execution practices that are correlated with outcomes. Data analysis facilitates insights into the causal factors behind success and failure, and allows individual turnarounds and shutdowns to be benchmarked against Industry average and top quartile performance. It also allows for the identification of demonstrated practices that lead to successful outcomes.
