Why Choose this Training Course?

In all steps of designing of pressure equipment related to hydrocarbons and chemical processing and applied in Oil & Gas, Chemical and Process industries, the process safety comes on the top of the list of all considerations. The safety remains to be of utmost importance during operation and maintenance and has to be verified with various methodologies.

This training course provides an overview of important elements of process safety as they are often encountered in today’s industrial practice. The emphasis is on engineering design aspects of Process Safety Management and it will highlight the safeguarding aspects of processing equipment inside the plant. Techniques for analyzing and mitigating process safety hazards applicable to Oil & Gas processing will be reviewed. Integration of the concepts required to achieve an optimum approach to Process Safety Engineering is the main goal of this course. Exercises and useful examples will be utilized throughout the course to emphasize the key learning points.

The training course will feature:

  • Importance of the concept of “Inherently Safer Design”
  • Design principles based on Standards for safe operation of process equipment
  • Selection and sizing of safety valves and pressure relief systems
  • Methods for process hazards analysis: HAZOP, LOPA, FMEA
  • Detection and prevention methods for fire and explosion accidents
  • Plant Equipment Inspection (NDT) and Maintenance Procedures
