TBG – Transportadora Brasileira Gasoduto Bolívia Brasil S.A. — Started in 2000, a program of studies based on the methodology of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) with a goal of analyzing its main and more critical facilities and systems according to this methodology seeking to guarantee a high reliability by means of the maintenance. This studies presented quite expressive results: it allowed to the participants to know in depth the systems and devices of the facilities; identify through a FMEA (Failure Modes and Effects Analysis) all the main manners of failures of the functions of the several systems and devices; to evaluate the consequences of the failures and its impact under safety’s point of view, environment and operation of the station; to determine the maintenance activities (preventive, predictive and of search of failures) necessary to the maintenance of the reliability of the station; to identify opportunities of improvements in the project of the installation seeking the increment of its reliability; to identify needs of implementation of operation procedures and maintenance or modification in the existent ones.
