Process Safety Training Course 2013

For more information, please contact:

Background and Introduction The course is structured to aid the identification, analysis and implementation of safety-related issues commonly associated with Oil and Gas facilities. The course will enable delegates to define Process Safety as it relates to the upstream oil and gas industry, and to describe and identify the main process hazards. It will also enable delegates to: Ÿ Discuss and select appropriate techniques to aid hazard identification. Ÿ Select the appropriate tools to analyse hazards in terms of their consequences and likelihood, and discuss the “As Low as Practicably Possible” (ALARP) principle. Ÿ Describe the different types of engineered and procedural layers of protection and evaluate the adequacy of protective functions. Ÿ Select and engineer appropriate safeguards using Inherently Safer Design principles. Delegates will apply the tools and techniques to a Case Study of a subsea tie-back to a host facility throughout the duration of the course.

Topics Covered The course contains lectures on the following topics with fundamental engineering concepts threaded through the content: Ÿ Process safety definition and framework (aided by an examination of several incidents that have shaped the industry's approach to its management). Ÿ Process hazards: Ÿ Loss of Containment Ÿ Fluids composition and characteristics Ÿ Fire & Explosion Ÿ Equipment rating – design pressure and temperature Ÿ HP/LP interfaces Ÿ Overpressure scenarios Ÿ Corrosion/erosion Ÿ An outline of the tools and techniques used in hazard identification (HAZID, HAZOP etc.) Ÿ Inherently safer design (ISD) principles and their application
