Any company that is in any way involved with the handling, processing, producing, transporting, and/or storing of flammable and combustible gases and liquids, combustible solids, explosible powders/dusts, and/or reactive chemicals would require our process safety services.
Generally speaking, petrochemical facilities range from relatively simple facilities in upstream operations (collector stations, production, and storage) to more complex downstream plants where large quantities of raw products are stored, processed, and then distributed. With a multiplicity of organic and inorganic hazardous materials that have very low flashpoints, low Lower Flammability Limits (LFL) and a wide flammable/explosive range, fire, flash fire, and explosion represent major hazards in the industry. These hazards need to be controlled at every stage of the process.
We partner with our clients in the petrochemical industry to help them identify, assess, prevent, and control fire, explosion, and accidental loss of containment hazards in their operations. Our services include expert consulting, laboratory testing, and training in the specialist fields of fire and explosion hazards, electrostatic hazards & processing problems, gas & vapor flammability hazards, Process Hazard Analysis, Process Safety Management, and incident investigation.
