AVAILABILITY

The availability record of CATS is exemplary, delivering an average annual availability over the past 10 years of 99.01% (pipeline), 98.38% (terminal), and 89.95% (riser platform), including both planned and unplanned downtime.
The availability record for unplanned outages only, over the same period, is 99.94% (pipeline), 99.73% (terminal), and 93.34% (riser platform).

 

To further improve our availability to our customers, CATS operates a non-intrusive inspection philosophy as part of a comprehensive Integrity Management Scheme. It is our aspiration to use this work to justify increasing the duration between shutdowns for visual inspection and still maintain the plant to exacting standards whilst fully meeting our legal and regulatory obligations in this respect.
