Process Safety in Upstream Oil and Gas


June, 2021





Process Safety in Upstream Oil and Gas shows how process safety applies to the upstream industry. Incidents such as Piper Alpha and Deepwater Horizon illustrate its importance.

Process Safety in Upstream Oil and Gas addresses the spectrum of upstream activities including well construction (drilling, completions, work-overs, and interventions), onshore and offshore production, and project phases (design, construction, installation, etc.). You will learn how the 20 elements of CCPS Risk-Based Process Safety (RBPS) can support process safety in upstream.

Experienced as well as Early Career readers will benefit from the inclusion of:

  • A thorough introduction to the applicability of process safety to  upstream oil and gas
  • Upstream incident vignettes illustrating the application
  • Practical discussion of risk-based process safety concepts, and
  • Thoughts on future technical advances & vision for upstream process safety

Process Safety in Upstream Oil and Gas is perfect for process safety & HSE professionals, project engineers and managers, and upstream service & supply companies.  It provides a one-stop resource for implementing safety processes in upstream oil & gas.

Note: The initial plan required reducing some of the figures in size for inclusion in the book.  However, during final production, there was no need to reduce the quality and hence there are no additional figures provided on this web page. The book contains all the best available figures.
