HAZID Studies/Workshops for SUCO’s Three Operating Sites, Gulf of Suez

  • Environics was commissioned to conduct Hazard Identification (HAZID) studies/workshops for three operating sites in Gulf of Suez; Ras Budran, Zeit Bay, and Ras Fanar respectively.
  • The HAZID studies have been performed in accordance with oil and gas relevant international standards (ISO 17776:20001) as well as best practice of the industry.
  • The main objectives of the HAZID were to:
    • Identify all hazards related to the safety of people, environment and/or asset at or near the facility;
    • Identify the associated events and outcomes and rank them based on risks;
    • Show clear links between hazards, causes and the potential events;
    • Identify hazards which can lead to major accident events (as defined in the Definitions);
    • Provide the operator and the workforce with sufficient knowledge, awareness and understanding of the hazards to be able to prevent and deal with accidents and dangerous occurrences;
    • Provide a systematic record of all identified hazards at or near the facility, and in particular those which may lead to major accident events, together with any assumptions; and
    • Provide a basis for identifying, evaluating, defining and justifying the selection (and rejection) of control measures for eliminating or reducing risk.
  • The HAZID team has considered the main offshore and onshore components during conducting the HAZID Sessions.
  • Each workshop included the below main contents:
    • Overview for HAZID/RA tools.
    • Illustrate HAZID Methodology.
    • Explain the HAZID Work-Sheets, matrices & Keywords.
    • Outline the Major Accidental Hazards (MAH) items for each site operations.
    • Conduct the HAZID against each MAH related hazard.
    • Record the findings in the Hazards and Effects Register Worksheets (HAZID Forms).
