The publication of ANP Resolution 41/2015, which established the Operational Safety Regulation for Subsea System – SGSS and ANP Resolution 46/2016, that established the Technical Regulation of the Well Integrity Management System - SGIP, defined that Operator Companies operating in Brazil must have integrity management programs for their assets, specifically related to wells and subsea system equipment.
The Regulations are non-prescriptive, giving the Operators freedom to establish their own integrity management philosophy and methodology. On the other hand, a Company can choose how to set up its integrity management program. Furthermore, many technical decisions must be made to comply with the regulations.
In a scenario where operational safety and integrity management can both further develop, implementing a system that manage and monitor all datas related to these issues is a big challenge.
This paper shows how a Brazilian independent oil and gas Operator implemented these regulations and which technical solutions were considered in order to manage the integrity of its assets and maintain a high level of operational safety in its operations.
