The purpose of turnaround is better utilization of resources and enchantment of safety, environment, reliability & contentious operation of the olefin plant at rated capacity. There is no clear distinction between two turnaround intervals of an olefin plant. There are olefin units with three & five year turnaround interval period. Mechanical integrity and unit effiencey determine majority of the schedule interval between two turnaround. To sum up, a cultural shift is necessary to intellectually agree on total reliability program of an olefin plant. This will focus on proactive to prevent the surprises & deviation from operation & safety. Moreover, it will assist in extending the turnaround interval beyond the five year. These papers will emphasis, how total reliability program can affect plant performance and extend the turnaround period. The extended turnaround interval will provide two fold benefits.
