Oil Condition Monitoring (OCM) of offshore oil and gas platform machinery lubricants and fluids is crucial to a successful maintenance and reliability program.

Offshore oil exploration and production equipment and machinery are subjected to constant exposure and 24/7 demands in harsh, demanding environments and working conditions.

Equipment failures and developing mechanical problems can cause expensive unplanned shutdowns and repairs, posing safety, environmental, and operational risks to personnel, the platform, and the project.

Having an oil condition monitoring (OCM) program for your offshore mission critical machinery provides enhanced reliability and is a useful tool for predictive maintenance.

Intertek provides oil condition monitoring services for the world's offshore oil & gas industry on a global basis. Key OCM laboratories are located near major global offshore exploration and production facilities.
