Environics carried out a Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study for the newly developed project for Solids II manufacturing to identify potential safety, environmental hazards, and major operability problems.
The HAZOP review, that aimed at meeting plant operation requirements and complying with Good Engineering Practice, was based on international guidelines and standards; Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Studies.
Environics team studied the Piping & Instrumentation Diagram (P&IDs) of the solids II project and its accessories, as well as the performance of the plant, to identify and highlight causes and consequences of deviations from the design intent.
As a structure team-based (Environics & Galaxy) review technique, the HAZOP analysis was carried out through a workshop held at Galaxy facility in Attaqa, Suez, and then the HAZOP report was developed encompassing the following:
Introduction including: report purpose, technique of process Hazard Analysis, and report contents.
Summary of the main findings and recommendations that highlighted the actions that need to be implemented before start up and commencement of the operation.
Technique: types of hazards, guide-words and considered causes, consequences & safeguards, operating modes, and nodes.
HAZOP Study Conductance (sessions and representations).
HAZOP Facilitator‟s Statement including: scope definition, objectives definition, representation, proceedings, risk review, auditability of proceedings, limitations and exclusions.
