PROFILE: Process Safety Mgmt,
Process Hazard Analyses, and
SIL / PHA Action Items Closure
2014     Chevron Wheatstone
Along with a PSM colleague, ensured that each team - Operations, Maintenance, Competence and Training - had access to the PHA closure register updates during design completion. Those not resolved in EPC phase, carried forward to production phase, are being addressed in Training & Procedures: also in Alarm Management and OTS training scenarios

2012    TOTAL Shetland Gas Plant
As Integrity Assurance "focal point" audit HAZOP closure action and DCN closure documentation to ensure that any other impacted discipline documents - beyond P&IDS - were also updated, including any re-work of design or re-procurement of materials.

2010   TurkmenGaz South Yoloten Gas Field Development
Coordinated scheduling of all the PHA activities from process selection through detailed design: ENVIDs, HAZID, HAZOP, QRA, SafeOps etc

2009    Borger Refinery Gasoline Benzene Reduction
Responsible for post-HAZOP markup of P&IDS, plus weekly updates to resolve PHA Action items: who assigned to, how to be closed, date closed, and sign-offs. Also advised client control systems team on the best methodology to best integrate EIV, SIL and HAZOP into consolidated PHA action item list, with post-IFC action by refinery PSM team.

2008   ExxonMobil Odoptu First Stage Production
Vetted and contracted experienced facilitator for FEED-stage P&IDs. Managed detailed Action Item closure process, involving hard-copy evidence for resolution with P&ID markups; each “blue sheet” signed by all HAZOP participants. For business risk, worked closely with DNV on RAM analysis for N+1 needs for power, re-injection and compressor.

2007    ADMA-OpCo Habshan Alpha Platform
Oversaw “HSE impact Assessment” and “Quantitative Risk Assessment" by ERM in the U.K. (with input from PHAST screening and RAM by DNV) to complete the full Safety Case for Abu Dhabi approval. Managed HAZOP and SIL workshops ensuring integration into the P&IDs, layout, Fire/Gas detection and alarm systems.

2006    Giant Yorktown Gasoline Desulphurization
Lead the in-house HAZOP review of SO2 removal systems from S-Zorb process to ensure safe operation of highly corrosive sulfite to sulfate and controlled discharge of neutralized solution to the Yorktown river. Also conducted a FlareNet study to ensure release of C3s/C4s from distillation reflux failure didn’t put condensed liquids to the flare.

1997    Korea Gas LNG Design Staff Training
After a fatal explosion at an LNG vaporization facility, KoGas arranged for Mobil Global HSE to have me train their supervisor level engineers to understand codes and standards such as API, ASME, ASTM, rather than applying by rote. High-level training included outlining how & when to systematically conduct different types of hazard analysis.

1996    Mobil Global HSE Best Practices Tools
As part of the GENIE initiative, reviewed HSE software used throughout all Mobil divisions world-wide, and then we standardized on software tools for each specific type of analysis e.g. dispersion modeling, blast calculation, noise contours, hazard identification, hazard and operability studies, fault-tree analysis, risk ranking, what-if scenarios.

1994    Pertamina HSE Staff Training at MRDC
After 1990 Earth summit in Rio, Indonesian’s President realized Pertamina had no Corporate HSE group, therefore no company-wide consistent procedures, practices or training. Mobil was chosen as best operator in Indonesia, and contracted to train 60 Pertamina staff every six months. I taught them on hazard analysis methods and tools.

1987    N.Z. SynFuel Plant Projects Reviews
Post-startup process projects included methanol plant debottlenecking, adding high CO2 content pipeline, triple-redundant Triconex on critical loops, and modifications to reformer steam / natural gas controls during upsets. We subjected each project to formal fault-tree analysis, then had them independently reviewed by Mobil experts.
