01T A New Era in Process Safety Management

01T A New Era in Process Safety Management

03 Sep 2019, 14:30 - 16:30

Room 3

In this session we will illustrate how new computing technologies applied to maturing fields on the UKCS drives improvements in process safety. Specialist numerical analysis or having a digital twin of the offshore facility, are now an efficient alternative to conventional design approaches as a basis for risk assessment processes. We will learn about the pooling of billions of hours of data on pressure safety valves to feed into risk-based inspection schemes, the use of digital twins in updating of procedures and at the same time incorporating human factors reviews. You will also see reviews of the progress of safety application and technology over the last 30 years giving learnings on how we manage our major accident hazards, hydrocarbon leaks and decommissioning activities.
