A maintenance system for an offshore plant uses an optimal maintenance method, process, and period based on operation information data and economic evaluation techniques. Maintenance is performed after one or more indicators show that equipment is going to fail or that equipment performance is deteriorating. A maintenance system is based on the use of real-time data to prioritize and optimize the LNG-FPSO topside equipment resources.
