This class provides an overview of process safety engineering fundamentals for hydrocarbon processing facilities focusing on Upstream Oil and Gas. This course will go into details to some of the technical safety engineering basic calculations to estimate the consequences and how to mitigate them. Learning from historical incidents will also be covered. Methods and techniques for hazard identification and mitigation applicable to Oil and Gas industries will be discussed. An overview of Process Safety Management (PSM) will be described. This course will involve interactive exercises and quizzes to strengthen the key learning.
