Facilities, process and design engineers, as well as new safety/loss prevention engineers who require an overview of Process Safety Engineering.


•Types of equipment and process systems that have historically been problematic in the Upstream oil & gas industry

•Basics of risk analysis

•Thinking in terms of Inherently Safer Design

•Most commonly used process hazards analysis methods and where they are used

•"Layers of Protection" concept - what the different layers are and how they are applied

•Detection and mitigation methods for different types of hazards


This course provides an overview of process safety engineering fundamentals for hydrocarbon processing facilities, with emphasis on the upstream oil & gas sector. The focus of this course is on the engineering/design aspects of Process Safety Management. Frequent reference will be made to historical incidents and recurring problem areas. Techniques for analyzing and mitigating process safety hazards applicable to oil and gas processing will be reviewed. Integration of the concepts covered to achieve a measured approach to Process Safety Engineering is a key aim of this course. Exercises and group projects will be utilized throughout the course to emphasize the key learning points.
