IEM Shout Out – 2019-05 Talk on “HAZOP”


My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 11th May 2019. It is worth XX CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The talk will be presented by yours truly, so come and fill seats, especially since I am giving it during the fasting month.

A Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study is a formal, systematic and detailed examination of new or existing facilities. It focusses on the process, rather than risks from ‘outside the pipe’, which are better analyzed using other studies such as HIREC/ HAZID/ HER. A HAZOP assesses the hazard potential, causes and consequences on a facility when there are deviations to the operating conditions, or the manner of operations. Existing safeguards need are reviewed to determine whether they can eliminate the cause or minimize the consequence.

Ir. Razmahwata has 20 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, in both design and operations. He joined ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc shortly after graduation in 1995. In 1998, he was reassigned to EMEPMI’s operations department. His responsibility was to provide technical support to an offshore production facility.
