This course will provide a comprehensive review of the various aspects of engineered safety and mechanical integrity in refineries, oil and gas plants and petrochemical plants.
Principal emphasis is placed on the primary means of achieving plant integrity, which is the prevention of pressure equipment and piping failures, particularly, any which could cause significant consequences.
This course builds on a focused and practical coverage of engineering materials properties and selection and provides structured procedures and applicable calculation formulae and methods for the mechanical design of process piping systems and pressure equipment.
The course underscores the importance of interactions and cooperation between the three key functions of engineering, operation and maintenance in achieving the optimum mechanical reliability level in the plant. It enforces this key issue with practical examples of significant failures resulting from lack of understanding of the roles, responsibilities and interfaces between these functions.
This course is intended for all refinery and petrochemical plant technical professionals, Engineers, Inspectors, Maintenance Personnel, as well as for project and consulting engineers and engineering and technical personnel involved in plant mechanical integrity and reliability.
Upon completion, you will know how to:
Apply the various aspects of engineered safety to ensure mechanical integrity in a responsible and cost-effective manner
Carry out hazard identification and risk assessment and management
Perform practical likelihood and consequence analyses
Describe how to achieve measurable improvement in mechanical integrity through effective interaction between engineering, operation and maintenance functions
Explain the interdependence of design, operation, and maintenance on integrity, reliability and cost effectiveness of piping
