Why Revalidate? Overview of the Process.
What does this involve? Similar to a retag, a typical LDAR revalidation often starts with P&ID highlighting to determine regulatory applicability and build the backbone for field work. During the field phase of the project, field crews do a complete walk-down and verification of inventoried components against the highlighted P&IDs, hanging tags and documenting equipment which needs to be added to the program and validating database information for components which are already documented in the LDAR database.
Because field flagging and tagging are not required, LDAR revalidations can often be completed for a fraction of the price of a retag. And because Ei Projects utilizes completely electronic data collection and robust data tracking tools, we are able to ensure every component in your program is validated, maximizing compliance.
The Ei Team Gives you Two Options to Revalidate
Intelligent P&ID Revalidation
Deliver industry-leading electronic P&IDs annotated with LDAR tag numbers and stream names with intelligent P&IDs. And since 80% of the information documented with each LDAR component is hard-coded into the P&ID, intelligent P&IDs deliver the most efficient and integrated revalidation approach. Better yet - the intelligent P&IDs generated during a project can be used to generate future LDAR P&ID highlight updates for a fraction of the cost.
Standard P&ID Driven Revalidation
Standard P&IDs are "electronicized" to produce searchable P&IDs that are used as the backbone of data collection during the revalidation. Since each and every P&ID component is crossed off - we can verify that every component has been re-validated.
Industry-leading Support Throughout the Project
We don't like surprises, and we know you don't either. The Ei Projects team are LDAR inventory experts, and throughout the project we deliver industry-leading project management. We work with you to develop robust standard operating procedures (SOPs) to guide all aspects of the project, SOPs that are based on our decades of collective experience, learned best practices, site procedures and protocols, and regulatory review. Throughout the project, we provide detailed project tracking and updates so you know what our team is working on and what's coming next.
We break QA/QC into two parts, foremost quality control to maximize data quality, and quality assurance to validate and review collected data:
Quality Control - The tools our team uses are built around quality control: we program the project-specific documentation SOP into custom software checks and balances that either prevents bad data from being collected, or warns the technician if potentially incorrect data is attempting to be collected.
Quality Assurance - All data that we collect is thoroughly analyzed by our industry-leading software tools and our team of experts to maximize compliance and consistency after the project. When we use intelligent P&IDs, we ensure every LDAR-applicable component on the P&ID has been documented - an unprecedented level of quality assurance.
At the end of an Ei retag, you don't just get a tagged inventory and updated LDAR database, you get industry-leading enhanced deliverables, including industry-leading electronic P&ID highlights, a detailed closeout report documenting applicability determinations and all phases of the project, and tools to efficiently and accurately manage inventory changes moving forward.
