E-626 - Safety Engineering - Module 3 (Project)

5 days HSE/SEWGB
Level
Proficiency
Audience
  • Engineers, technicians and staff (environment, project, process, instrument, and operations) involved in operating Oil & Gas field processing facilities or in designing Oil & Gas projects architecture.
Purpose
  • This course provides the knowledge necessary to assess and mitigate risks involved in designing, constructing and operating Oil & Gas processing facilities.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • apply HSE standards, process hazards analysis methods and key safety management rules,
  • explain the contents of standard hazard studies,
  • select safety systems including firewater, fire and gas detection,
  • take part in risk assessment and project evaluation for offshore and onshore facilities.
Prerequisite
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Highly interactive and participative training method where a mini-project will be presented, so the different workshop activities will be applied to this project.
  • Workshop sessions with several exercises, applications, real case studies.
  • Brainstorming sessions in small groups, with reporting.
  • Plenary sessions to consolidate fundamental knowledge and discuss results of workshop sessions.

SAFETY ENGINEERING MINI-PROJECT FOR A SPECIFIC SURFACE PRODUCTION FACILITY
  • Throughout the course, the participants will be guided in the development of safety engineering studies for one production facility. The various workshops performed throughout the week will thus enable the constitution of a safety dossier for a given production facility. Each workshop will comprise of a plenary training session, which will provide the theory required for the participants to then work on their case study. For this purpose, participants will be grouped in teams. Following each case study, debriefing sessions are organized, during which the results are presented by and discussed with the participants.
