There are two main elements in Operational Safety. These two areas are Technical Authority Services and Operational Support.
Technical Authority Services: The company focuses on providing expert guidance to operators in the energy sector and promote best practices on safety to bring about a culture of safety in the entire organisation. The technical authority team consists of a team of handpicked experts who have spent years in the industry mastering their job. The Technical Authority team has successfully completed innumerable projects on both brownfield and greenfield design and have earned appreciation from clients they have worked with. Some of the services offered by the team include:
· Manage and review change request to enhance plant performance and safety.
· Identify and develop continuous improvement projects ‘in-house’.
· Participate in multi-functional audits of procedures and performance standards.
· Interface with national or regional regulatory bodies.
Operational Support: SynergenOG has a dedicated team with years of experience in the industry to provide operational support to clients. The team is selected after rounds of rigorous interviews and they are provided with a range of training to ensure the client is provided with the best services at all times. The services offered under operational support include:
RAM Study is to be undertaken based on the production profile for full field life, including future expansion of equipment, components, and systems using a life-cycle performance simulation software package (MAROS) to determine Production Availability and Production Efficiency. The RAM model will include definition of the potential constraints on repair activities imposed by restrictions such as flaring limitations, mobilisation delays, shift constraints, resource limitations and capital spares availability. The assessment will also identify the main failure components and if necessary recommend modifications to the design to help improve the overall system availability.
A Failure Modes and, Effects Assessment (FMEA) is to be undertaken as part of the RAM Study to identify potential failure modes and their criticality in terms of impact to operations. The FMEA worksheet will include identification of potential system failure modes. The failure and repair data for each equipment/item will be estimated based on the statistical data applicable to offshore from reputable Contractors, field operators or recognised international bodies, recognised international standards and practices such as OREDA.
Independent review of safety related deliverables produced by contractor/ sub-contractor and provide provision of meaningful feedback to the project team in the form of comments/ input to highlight potential design issues.
Specific structured engineering safety audit process that is performed at key stages such as project initiation, concept design, FEED, Detailed Design/ Fabrication/Construction, Installation, Hook-up/ Pre-commissioning/ Commissioning, operations in a project development lifecycle to assure company management and other stakeholders that all significant SHE issues have been identified and are being/have been satisfactorily addressed.
Assist client in managing all modification of change request and review the safety and/or environmental implications of all MOCs raised.
Provision of technical safety personnel support to conduct technical safety assessment as required to address concerns/ risks.
The purpose of a Safety Case is to demonstrate the internal/ external assurance that its management system͛s risk reducing controls related to the HSE aspects of its operations has been controlled/ managed in such a way that the risks has been reduced to As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) levels. This document aspired to maximise awareness, understanding and knowledge of the Safety Case, targeting areas and improvement via cascading the right information to the right people in the right way (that is including but not limited to HSE induction, training and the like).
Provide an independent review on the readiness of the facility to commence initial start-up safely with a design suitable for an effective and efficient move to a hydrocarbon facility ready to start production. It is a structured review to ensure the facility is well prepared to commence start-up operations safely. In addition, this review is also to aid in the development of a comprehensive start-up procedure to facilitate initial start-up and start-up operations.
