The world of Process Safety has been expanding in response to recent incidents, litigation, interpretations of government regulations, world wide voluntary industry standards, and corporate safety practice. Combined, these many factors have a direct impact on petroleum engineering practice, not simply the safety group.
Among the examples discussed include:
Controversy in recent OSHA interpretations
- What is an “adequate” HAZOP
- API 14C, SIL Estimation and Alarm Management
- NIMBY problems of recent proposed LNG projects.
