Module 1 – Risk Assessment and its processes
Key words associated with Risk Assessment Processes a. An accident - Is an unplanned event that results in loss b. A hazard - Is something that has the potential to cause harm c. A risk - Is the likelihood and the severity of a negative occurrence for example injury, ill-health, damage and loss resulting from a hazard. It is also a situation of exposure to danger or a probability of something bad happening.

Module 2 – Incident Command System (ICS)
ICS is a standardized approach to the command, control and and coordination of emergency response to providing a common hierarchy within which oil spill emergency responses can be effectively carried out.

Module 3 – Conduct and monitor assets integrity management programme for oil and gas operations in Nigeria
The ASM Department is charged with the responsibility for surveillance and to ensure compliance with all existing environmental legislation and the detection of oil spills in the petroleum sector (NOSDRA Establishment Act 2006 Section 6 (10) (a)). In achieving the above responsibility, there is need for a Pipeline Integrity Assurance Program under a full fledge Assets Integrity Management (AIM).

Module 4 – Asset Integrity Management: Standard operating procedure of hydrocarbon pipeline maintenance
This procedure is a guideline on the proper way to safely perform asset integrity management. The operators will the SOP as a guide to help them perform the integrity of the asset, and this will be in compliance with government regulations and standard.

Module 5 – Hazard Identification (HAZID)
Oil spills are one form of disaster that is not a natural disaster, but one that people have caused. An oil spill can harm birds, mammals, marine life and the environment in several ways via direct physical contact, toxic contamination, destruction of food sources, habitats, and reproductive problems.

Applicability of the Asset Integrity Management Programme
About Lesson

The AIMP is applicable to all Assets, Owners/Operators in the oil and gas sector of the country.

3.3.1 Proposed activities under AIMP
The following activities are proposed to be carried out under the AIMP:
-For Owners/operators
a. Oil facility owners/operators will be requested to submit to the Agency, detailed Assets Management Plan for all their oil and gas assets. The plan will include, among others, the following:
i. Description of assets (including location, the age of the asset i.e indicating date of manufacture and the date asset was commissioned, expected service life of assets and other relevant technical information about the asset);
ii. Scope of the plan (span in terms of years) for each activity:
iii. Plan/Schedule for the injection of corrosion inhibitors, protective coatings etc and proof that they have been carried out within the last two years;
iv. Operators to identify Safety Critical Elements (SCE) of their facility and indicate this in the plan;
v. Use of software (Pipeline Integrity Management Software e.g Risk-Based Inspection software that utilizes current and historical information and produce a prioritized inspection regime.) for advanced corrosion prediction calculations;
vi. Schedule for de-waxing and flushing of pipelines and schedule for cleaning of storage tanks with proof that they have been carried out within the last five years;
vii. Schedule/Plan of Foam pigging and progressive pigging on pipelines;
viii. Completion of sectional replacement of pipelines and risers;
ix. Plan for sectional replacement of pipelines;
x. Results of the Integrity tests carried out on Pipelines and storage tanks within the last five years;
xi. Cathodic protection tests and monitoring plans; and
xii. Non Destructive Test (NDT) survey/Test, Gauge-plate Test and completing profiling of pipeline.
