A significant aspect of operational excellence is loss prevention. SynergenOG specialises in designing measures which are aimed at preventing or minimising loss from hazardous activities. The team specialises in loss prevention activities, thus enabling clients to not only avoid untoward incidents but also protect the business from them. The key loss prevention deliverables of Synergen OG include:
This document identifies the safety, health and environmental programmes and activities, and outline the schedule of key SHE milestones from the start of the project up to operations. HSE Roles and Responsibilities within the Project Leadership Team is also defined in achieving the SHE objectives and goals created by the Project to demonstrate compliance.
Plays a pivotal role in explosion prevention – i.e. the technique of preventing explosions due to flammable gases, vapours, mists, dusts and etc. It refers to the classification of plant into hazardous areas, and the systematic identification and control of ignition sources. The starting point is to identify sources of release of flammable gas or vapour arising from normal/ unplanned operation. C lassification of hazardous areas aid the selection of appropriate zone type and equipment, the remainder wi ll be defined as non- hazardous, sometimes referred to as ‘safe areas’, in accordance to industrial standard such as API 505 or IP 15.
To evaluate optimal location and quantity of firewater monitors required on a facility based on the water application rates, in line with international best practices. The assessment also considers water spray coverage, common mode failures and installability.
Assist client to design escape routes in line with international codes and standards, which includes sufficient number of escape routes, dimension, marking, condition etc. The assessment also takes into consideration of major accident hazards identified the facility.
The aims of the study are to ensure that the systems can be operated in a safe manner without causing injury to operators due to poor working conditions or to lead to an unsafe condition due to operator err or or inaction, and to identify significant issues or opportunities associated with the Project that would benefit from further HFE quality control activities. The study helps to ensure that the design takes into account ergonomic factors such as valve access, visibility of field instrumentation and movement of equipment to / from the field.
This study is limited to validation of the design configuration of the flare stack and individual system vents within the context of emergency and continuous operations. The study considers potential thermal radiation from flare stack versus allowable exposure limits at sensitive locations during emergency and continuous flaring operations and recommend the suitable flare design.
The objective of the study is to assess adequacy of the fire and gas detection system based on international codes and standards. The assessment considers the material properties, redundancy provided the F&G detectors as well as blocking of line of sight. Where deemed necessary, suitable practicable recommendations will be made to improve the fire and gas detection system performance.
