Technical Safety has become an increasingly important activity within oil and gas operations. Our Safety team consists of very experienced and competent personnel, which can perform a wide variety of activities associated with identification, assessment, and control of hazards to personnel, the environment, and assets. Our two main areas of expertise are within functional safety and technical safety.
Functional Safety of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS)
Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) perform a critical role in order to control and maintain risk at an acceptable level. That is why it is essential to identify which functions (SIFs) are required, as well as determining what requirements should be given for their performance (SIL).
• SIS lifecycle management (IEC 61508/61511) / Functional safety management • SIF identification and SIL allocation • Safety Requirements Specification (SRS) • SIL assessments (i.e. LOPA, NOG GL 070) • Compliance calculations and reporting • FMEDA / FMECA/ LOPA /RAM studies • Functional safety assessment (FSA) • SIL support to vendors and equipment suppliers (SAR) • IEC 61508/SIL courses & training • Consulting
Our Technical Safety Engineering group performs the technical functions of the HSE scope in different projects and assignments.
• Risk management • Safety strategies / philosophies • HAZID • HAZOP • Firewater hydraulic calculations (Pipenet) • Firewater surge analysis • Fire & gas design • Hazardous area classification • Fire and explosion analysis • Safety-critical elements and performance standards • Cause and Effect (C&E) diagrams
