General Layout

3 days PGP/GENELAY
Level
Foundation
Audience
  • Engineers and technicians involved in Oil & Gas projects.
Purpose
  • This course provides knowledge on how to elaborate a general layout and take into account the various constraints.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • produce the equipment layout of a project, taking into account all constraints imposed by the various disciplines, as well as suppliers, site infrastructure, regulations and company standards,
  • optimize layout,
  • efficiently participate to a design review.
Prerequisite
  • Basic knowledge of the Oil & Gas industry.
Ways and means
  • Examples issued from refining/chemical projects.
  • Develop a general arrangement on a practical case.
  • Design review using HAZID methodology.

PRELIMINARY LAYOUT 1 day
  • European regulations for: safety distances, noise, environment, works. International standards.
  • Use of Blocs Diagrams, Process Flow Diagrams and Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams.
  • General layout: process units, storage facilities. Utilities. Technical & administrative buildings. Site access (road, rail, sea).
LAYOUT CRITERIA & CONSTRAINTS 1 day
  • Review of constraints generated by the various disciplines. Associated layout criteria.
  • Health, Safety and Environmental constraints.
  • Location of naked flame. Area classification.
  • Use of the results of Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA). Safety distances.
  • Access, Egress, Escape and Rescue: structures at height, congested areas, access of rescue team.
  • Firefighting equipment layout. Fire zones.
  • Health. Ergonomics. Noise concerns at fence.
  • Maintainability: lifting and storage area, access to equipment.
  • Site circulation: management of vehicle flows (cars, trucks, railcars), forbidden access/areas to vehicle.
  • Planning and scheduling: data availability at each project stage, management of Holds and Change Requests.
PLOT PLAN REVIEWS 0.5 day
  • Design reviews using HAZID methodology.
  • Final layout (including validated actions from reviews or equipment supplier data). Use of 3D models.
LAYOUT OPTIMIZATION 0.5 day
  • Inter-unit connection optimization: above-ground/underground. Storage area optimization.
  • Optimization of paved areas. Specificity of packages or integrated modules/skids.
