  1. Applicability of Currently Available Flare Radiation Models for Hydrogen and Syngas

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    The primary purpose of a flare model is to provide a reasonably accurate prediction of radiant heat flux at any point of interest around the flame, in order to define safe release locations. In order to do this, a good flare model needs to provide reasonably accurate prediction of the following...

  2. The Past, Present and Future of LNG

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    In one decade, the gas prospects in North America have gone from dire to exceptional. In 2004, we were scrambling to build import capacity for gas as LNG. In 2014, we are scrambling to do the opposite - build export infrastructure for LNG. The shale gas revolution has led to a resurgence in...

  3. Panel Discussion - Shale Gas and Tight Oil Processing

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Panel discussion.

  4. Implementation of Process Safety Metrics in Wells and Drilling Activities at Petrobras

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Monitoring and analysis of results derived from Process Safety Indicators provide inputs to the continuous improvement process in Safety Management. In fact, these results make it possible to focus efforts on the weaknesses identified and to determine potential opportunities for improvement...

  5. The Path to New Technology Commercialization

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    For process developers, the commercialization of new process technology in the Hydrocarbon Processing Industries (HPI) is a difficult and almost insurmountable task. The significant investment and operating risks inherent in the large-scale demonstration of unproven capital-intensive HPI process...

  6. Improve Furnace Availability and Control Downtime

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    In 2008, Ethylene Producer's Committee sponsored a worldwide furnace maintenance survey among ethylene producers. Out of the 67 respondents, over 70% have furnace limited operation. Thus, for majority of ethylene producers, an unscheduled outage either affects the plant capacity or requires...

  7. What do a Trash Disposal Site and a Refinery Share in Common

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    These facts are true about refineries – They are always short of hydrogen They are considered by the local community as a toxic site to be controlled, if barely tolerated The have a preexisting traffic flow pattern of trucks, trains, and pipelines loading off product The have lots of process...

  8. Managing Operational Risk in an Enterprise Risk Management Framework

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Chevron has a structured approach to enterprise risk management that is aligned to ISO31000 and consistent with industry best practices including the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) framework. Risks are assessed across the full scope of the enterprise within...

  9. ASTM E2931: A New Standard for the Limiting Oxygen Concentration of Combustible Dusts

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Abstract Explosions can be very destructive in industrial and process situations. The mitigation of these devastating effects can be accomplished by disrupting the classical fire triangle. The fire triangle is made up of three elements 1) the fuel, 2) the ignition source, 3) the oxidizing...

  10. Typical Elements of Process Safety Management

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    This paper will present a suggestion of key elements that will provide grants for companies to develop their process safety management system, which is a great support tool to the good performance of the companies, because it is present in different stages of a project, from its design to closing...
