Lessons from Incidents: Placing Best Practice Analysis at the Heart of Process Safety Management
13 December 2017

Sponsor: Process Systems Enterprise

Several major incidents involving flare and relief systems can be traced to a failure to recognize hazards and perform adequate analysis.

This webcast will use the incidents as examples to explain how industry guidance, such as API 521, and good engineering practices have been enhanced to prevent future accidents and promote inherently safe design. It will describe the best practice solutions you need to effectively manage process safety:

  • Key elements of pressure relief and blowdown verifications to ensure PSM compliance
  • Up-to-date approaches for assessing:
    • vessel survivability under fire attack
    • brittle fracture risks during depressurization
    • transient process behavior during relief events.
  • Minimizing capital expenditure without compromising safety

It will be of interest to hydrocarbon engineers, especially those with an interest in safety, flare simulation experts and managers with responsibility for asset and plant integrity.

The New LNG Imperative
29 November 2017

The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction.

Attend this webcast to hear from Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing, Scott Allgood, Director-Data Services, Energy Web Atlas and Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor, Petroleum Economist as they discuss the future of LNG and the application of Energy Web Atlas, a web-based GIS platform which allows users to track real-time information for every LNG project.

Designing Corrosion Out of Your Fireproofing System
7 November 2017

Sponsor: Sherwin-Williams

Hydrocarbon processing plants are challenged with protecting assets against both corrosion and fire damage. Corrosion poses a great threat to structural integrity – especially in a fire scenario. Corrosion underneath fireproofing can be hard to detect, and when it’s found, the costs to mitigate the corrosion and replace fireproofing materials can overwhelm plant maintenance budgets. This presentation highlights differences in fireproofing types and how each type correlates with corrosion potential. It will help owners and specifiers select the proper fireproofing materials to last the desired life of their assets, while eliminating the threat of corrosion.

Leveraging IIoT to Drive Operational Excellence
1 November 2017

Sponsor: Honeywell UOP

With reduced crude oil prices, the Oil & Gas industry faces a rapidly changing market place combined with lightening-speed advances in technology. The question facing refining and petrochemical producers is how to successfully adapt to the challenges by investing in technology that leverages insights from big data and drives business growth with operational improvements, increased reliability and higher margins.

Join Honeywell UOP’s Connected Performance Services's Business Leader, Christophe Romatier, and Sr. Product Line Manager, Katherine Jones, for an informative webinar. They will highlight a scenario around a new cloud-based service from Honeywell Connected Plant that targets these challenges, provides industrial users with around the clock monitoring of plant data and rigorous simulations, and offers on-going operational health checks and recommendations to close performance gaps and drive operational excellence.
