IEM Shout Out – Talk on HAZOP – A Practical Approach

January 12, 2017

My technical division will be hosting a talk on the 19th January, 2017 at 5:30pm. It is worth 2 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. Since I’m giving it, I expect hoards will have to be turned away at the gates. And it’s a big room, so I need to fill the seats.

A Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) study is a formal, systematic and detailed examination of new or existing facilities. It focuses 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.

Shout Out – One-Day Course on Safety Integrity Levels (SIL) 2016-11 Training For Workshop Participants

November 1, 2016

My technical division will be hosting a 1 day seminar on the 15th November, 2016. It is worth 6.5 CPD points, and held at Hilton Hotel. Since I’m giving it, I expect hoards will have to be turned away at the gates. And it’s a big room, so I need to fill the seats.

In the Layer of Protection methodology, a Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) designed to eliminate the cause of a risk or minimize the consequence of an event. The expectation of the SIF’s reliability to perform upon demand must be defined so that it is designed appropriately. The Safety Integrity Level (SIL) study is a tool used this.

This full day course is designed to educate participants in the SIL process from the perspective of a SIL team member. It is meant to provide both instruction and workshop sessions so that the participants:

  • Are familiar with the concept of ‘risk’
  • Are familiar with the theory and terminology behind Layers of Protection, SIS, SIF, SIL and LOPA
  • Are familiar with the different SIL methodologies: risk graph, risk matrix, LOPA.
  • Have expectations as to what the SIL workshop will (and won’t) provide.
  • Understand what deliverables can be expected from a SIL workshop.
  • Have the opportunity to participate in SIL exercise in a safe environment.Opportunity to share SIL experiences.

IEM Shout Out – 2016/04 Full-Day HAZOP Training For Team Members – A Practical Approach

March 25, 2016

My technical division will be hosting a 1 day course on the 28th April, 2016. It is worth 6.5 CPD points, and held at (wait for it) Hilton PJ. Since I’m giving it, I expect hoards will have to be turned away at the gates. And it’s a big room, so I need to fill the seats.

A Hazard and Operability study is a formal and systematic and detailed examination of the process and engineering intentions of new or existing facilities which assesses the hazard potential and effects on the facility as a whole when operation is outside of the design envelope, or individual items of equipment malfunction.

This course is designed to educate participants in the HAZOP process from the perspective of a HAZOP team member. It is meant to provide both instruction and workshop sessions so that the participants:

  • Are familiar with the concept of ‘risk’
  • Are familiar with the theory behind HAZOP
  • Are familiar with the actual HAZOP workshop process
  • Have expectations as to what the HAZOP will (and won’t provide)
  • Understand what deliverables can be expected from a HAZOP
  • Have the opportunity to participate in HAZOP exercise in a safe environment
  • Opportunity to share HAZOP experiences

At the end of the session, the participants should:

  • Understand the responsibilities of all parties in the HAZOP
  • Have experience in a HAZOP session.
  • Understand the outcomes from a HAZOP session

Shout Out – Talk on External Turret Design for Floating Storage Offloading/ Floating Production Storage Offloading Vessel (FPO/FPSO

March 9, 2016

This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will be  hosting a talk on the 16th March, 2016 by Ir. Saifulbahari. It’ll be at 5:30 pm  (makan-makan at 5:00). I’m giving the talk, so turn up.

This presentation will cover the engineering aspects of an external turret system. The external turret system is attached to the hull of the tanker and allows the tanker to freely weathervane and thereby takes up the least resistance to the combined forces of wind, waves and current. The external turret mooring system is composed of a stationary turret part connected to the external vessel’s structure via a roller type bearing. The turret part is secured to the seabed by catenary or (semi) taught mooring legs to provide sufficient restoring forces to keep the vessel within a design excursion limit. This excursion limit ensures the safe working of the underwater fluid transfer riser system from the seafloor to the turret.

Ir. Saifulbahari has more than 15 years of experience in design and project experience in oil and gas, in particular with floating structures (e.g. FPSO, FSO, CALM buoy, Semi).

He started his career in oil & gas as a Mechanical Engineer at Ranhill Worley. In 2002, he has been selected to be part of Project Management Consultant (PMC) to deliver MISC 1st FPSO Bunga Kertas. Subsequently, he also involved in successfully delivering MISC 1st FSO project, FSO Angsi that was completed within 15 months to first oil. His breakthrough in hydrodynamic and mooring design expertise when he worked for 4 years with INTECSEA Perth office and later with SBM Malaysia.

Currently, he is a Senior Manager of Hull & Mooring in OBU of MISC Bhd. He is heading team of 15 engineers consist of Naval Architectural, Structural and Hydrodynamic and Mooring engineers.
