Plant turnaround shutdown is a fundamental asset management in capital intensive process-based industries. Offshore platform is like a ‘town’ in the middle of the sea with a facility for well drilling to explore, process for petroleum and also natural gas, to extract and store. The platform also has facilities for workforce as well. Shutting down an offshore platform for the schedule maintenance is a risky activity that could cost millions of dollar if not properly managed. The success of Offshore platform schedule shutdown is heavily depending on the close coordination among the stakeholder of the project including meeting the logistics requirement. In offshore schedule shutdown, logistics play a critical role in the whole process of the shutdown due to restricted space available for working area, accommodation, and storage. The design for offshore platform include all the requirements including the living space for workers, space for office and many more. The successful implementation of turnaround among others depends on the appropriate provision of institution and organization for the governance of the event. Moreover, it is rare to find literature on organizational characteristics of plant turnaround shutdown. The purpose of this study is to explore the challenges of logistics setup during a schedule shutdown in offshore platform which turn to be a major problem for oil and gas company. In this research propose a framework for examining the organizational challenges during the plant turnaround shutdown and researcher has purpose the efficient way that could lead to the successful initiative for the company. For data collection, researcher is using group focus interview the targeting team and also from the books, journal or website.
