EPConsult Energies’ (EPEn) experience in delivering Life Extension studies derives from our expertise in Asset Integrity Management, Performance Optimisation, Reliability, Availability and Maintainability; Health, Safety and Environmental Management and thought leadership in Quantitative Risk Assessment.
In addition, EPEn has significant experience in CAPEX and OPEX estimation, which is crucial when developing the optimum Life Extension implementation plan for an installation.

The Work Practice provides a robust process for handling a variety of life extension challenges in a concise and consistent manner”, says David Price, Principal Consultant at EPEn.
