BMT’s experience and knowledge on oil & gas, petrochemical and chemical processing industries help the clients to identify, quantify and mitigate the risks associated with onshore process facilities to protect people, assets and the environment.
Hazard Identification (HAZID) and Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Studies
BMT is capable of conducting Hazard Identification studies at the initial feasibility stage of a project, as well as Hazard and Operability studies for the front end engineering design, detailed engineering design and design modification during the operation stage. This will effectively identify, illustrate and minimise the potential hazards during the operation stage of the project, and improve the overall operability of the plant and provide cost-effective solutions for the clients.
Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) and Consequence Modelling
BMT has extensive experiences in conducting quantitative risk assessment using industry-recognized modelling softwarePHAST Riskand in-house developed risk summation softwareRISKSUM. This helps the clients to estimate the impact zones of hazardous scenarios as well as identify the worst case and dominant risk scenarios, for layout optimization, design adjustment and further risk mitigation measures. A QRA study can also help clients to meet statutory and corporate requirements on land use planning.
Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Classification and Verification
Safety instrumented systems are critical to maintain the safe operation of process facilities and prevent unexpected loss to the facility owners and the society. Following International Electrotechnical Commission standards IEC 61508 and 61511, BMT works closely with engineers and operators to specify the SIL requirements of safety instrumented functions from a risk perspective and verify whether the requirements have been met by the instrumentation arrangement, during various stages of the project life cycle.
