 WEBEX icon2“Does My MOC Affect Relief or Flare System Design?”

Many major accidents in our industry are related to uncontrolled change. Updating relief systems process safety information (PSI) is an essential, and often overlooked, aspect of management of change (MOC). When changes affecting relief systems are not recognized, a facility will often have to undertake the costly and untimely process of periodically restudying and revising the relief system PSI. These periodic studies can lead to unexpected asset installations and/or operating parameter changes. Based on experiences at various facilities, a workflow is presented in this webinar as a timely method for plant level engineers to recognize changes that can affect relief systems. Ultimately this methodology can reduce the error rate associated with MOC and ensure related relief system PSI is accurately updated.

As production throughputs have increased over the years, many owners and operators have found that the flare disposal system capacity has been an afterthought.

This webinar covers the methods and procedures for getting the most out of a flare disposal system, including techniques to “sharpen the pencil” and reduce the loads to the flare by reviewing and removing overly conservative modeling assumptions, as well as options for equipment selection and instrumentation based solutions to eliminate or reduce the likelihood of a relief load in a scenario.

Presenters: Nicholas Cristea & Andrew Stein

This webinar will look at the how incorporating specialized engineering (Process Safety) into a CAPEX project provides value, as well as, prevents potential concerns after start-up or later in the project.

The use of specialized engineering allows better solutions to be generated based on the experience and knowledge that is brought onto the project.

Please join us as we will cover several case studies demonstrating the impact of not utilizing specialized engineering in the design phase of a CAPEX project, including costs and preventative measures.

In the oil and gas industry, changes are constantly made to existing equipment and processes. These changes often require modifications to the relief systems design. There are many options that could address the concern, but typically there is one option that is more economical than the others while still satisfying all safety requirements. Certain operational and economic considerations tend to be overlooked when these relief systems modifications are made, resulting in unnecessary capital costs, wasted engineering hours, or potentially unsafe design.

The intention of this webinar is to review some representative cases where existing relief systems were inadequate, and the more common mitigations raise additional concerns. By thinking outside of the normal realm of process safety design, as well as having a proper understanding of the industry codes and standards, resolutions can be made that have a lower operational and/or financial impact.

The case studies covered illustrate the challenges that arise in the detailed design and construction phases while trying to implement mitigation plans, and why it is important to plan ahead as to what possible challenges may be seen in the future phases of the project.

Past WEBEX icon2"Are You Ready for
OSHA's NEP Audits?"

Presenters: Dick Baum & Parimal Desai
View Webinar: Click Here to View Webinar 

menuitemiconClick for More InformationMore Information

This webinar will provide guidance on evaluating your PSM facility for compliance with the OSHA PSM standard and additional emphasis on the OSHA directive for the NEP Audits.

We will address all 14 PSM elements and what the NEP audit entails for review and documentation. Based on recent client feedback, we will: 1) focus on the areas that have drawn the most interest from OSHA and 2) how to prepare for a successful audit. Only OSHA knows the “Dynamic List” of questions developed for their audits, but there has been some consistency in the areas drawing interest.

Join us as we share and discuss these experiences and how best to prepare.
