application of best practices such as risk-based inspection methodology; corrosion management; and advanced NDT - to address unscheduled deferment and process safety risk on brownfeld GoM facilities. Further to this, offshore facility paint management will be
covered in detail, including insights into Shell’s paint management program approach on brownfeld GoM facilities. This includes the
prioritization of paint workscope; the long-term required paint resources/productivity; utilization of technology and best practices;

UTILIZATION OF NON-TRADITIONAL ISOLATION TECHNOLOGY IN DEEPWATER
Nasbi Guzman, Senior Mechanical Engineer; BP
The Mad Dog project recently faced the challenge of having to replace the last platform valves on the gas export pipeline. A traditional
isolation was not possible. After consideration of many options with respect to safety; business & environmental risk; the remote pipeline isolation tool was progressed as the most suitable isolation solution to replace the 45,000 lb valve spool.
Guzman is a senior mechanical engineer for BP Gulf of Mexico Operations organization. Nasbi was a facility engineer on Mad Dog in 2010 when she was
tasked with building a strategy to address the reliability issues seen with the gas export valves. She continued to support the project from the central
discipline group as the technical lead through the project’s select/defne stage, as well as, offshore execution in 2014.
