NGE is providing a Lead Facilitator and Scribe as part of the team of appropriate facility personnel to conduct and document HAZOP Studies for their client’s Utica Shale Oil and Gas Processes focusing on a portion of the gathering pipeline including the separator, fired heater, storage tanks, and other associated equipment. The HAZOP studies are being conducted to identify and evaluate safety hazards of the process being evaluated and to identify operability problems.
Prior to beginning the PHA, NGE reviewed all available summary documentation of the facility’s P&IDs, SOPs, Operations Manuals, and other relevant information in order to become familiar with the facility’s equipment and processes.
Following completion of the on-site portion of the study, NGE prepares a draft report documenting the HAZOP study process and findings. The report includes text detailing the study process, a table with study findings and action items, and referenced attachments, including the study notes. Following receipt of comments on the draft report, the report is finalized. As a value-added service, NGE participates in periodic follow-up meetings to provide accountability checks for action items.
