Reliability based design and assessment (RBDA) methods are used to make design and operational decisions that meet specified target reliability levels. The benefits of these methods include:
- High, consistent and demonstrable safety levels;
- Integration of design, construction and operational decisions to reach optimal life-cycle cost solutions;
- Identification of key parameters that influence the system reliability; and
- Ability to address unconventional and HPHT well designs using premium connections and high strength and/or high corrosion resistant materials.
