Asset Health Monitoring:
An End User's Perspective

- End-User 1 -


Pembina has recently launched an initiative to maximize the value of its operating installed base (> 1200 pipeline pumps) through development and progression of real time fleet management, KPI Dashboarding, Issue identification & Case study resolution.


This presentation will illustrate the methodology behind the execution of this initiative, as well as the intended benefits in achieving:

  • Quick adoption and roll out, facilitated by prework in the form of the digitization of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) pump curves for critical assets.

  • A complete and proactive assessment of asset health.

  • KPI definition and dashboard development to enable simplified visual identification of asset performance while spotlighting and enabling the prioritization of continuous improvement opportunities.


In addition, the presentation will examine some of the examples / different types of deficiencies observed because of the strategical shift in monitoring strategy, including identification of:

  • Assets currently not meeting their functional performance standards.

  • The onset of equipment degradation.

  • Masked legacy issues.

  • The reprioritization of maintenance overhauls from one asset to another.

  • Improved diagnostics to mitigate unplanned outages.
