MOGEC Shout Out – Full-Day HAZOP Training For Team Members – A Practical Approach

September 28, 2014

MOGEC will be hosting a 1 day course (our first in my memory) on the 28th October, 2014. It is worth 6.5 CPD points, and held at Saloma Bistro. Since I’m giving it, I expect hoards will have to be turned away at the gates.

A Hazard and Operability study is a formal and systematic and detailed examination of the process and engineering intentions of new or existing facilities which assesses the hazard potential and effects on the facility as a whole when operation is outside of the design envelope, or individual items of equipment malfunction.

At the end of the session, the participants should:

  • Understand the responsibilities of all parties in the HAZOP
  • Have experience in a HAZOP session.
  • Understand the outcomes from a HAZOP session

IEM Shout Out – Full-Day HAZOP Training For Team Members – A Practical Approach

September 28, 2014

My technical division will be hosting a 1 day seminar on the 20th November, 2014. It is worth 6.5 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. Since I’m giving it, I expect hoards will have to be turned away at the gates. And it’s a big room, so I need to fill the seats.

A Hazard and Operability study is a formal and systematic and detailed examination of the process and engineering intentions of new or existing facilities which assesses the hazard potential and effects on the facility as a whole when operation is outside of the design envelope, or individual items of equipment malfunction.

This course is designed to educate participants in the HAZOP process from the perspective of a HAZOP team member. It is meant to provide both instruction and workshop sessions so that the participants:

  • Are familiar with the concept of ‘risk’
  • Are familiar with the theory behind HAZOP
  • Are familiar with the actual HAZOP workshop process
  • Have expectations as to what the HAZOP will (and won’t provide)
  • Understand what deliverables can be expected from a HAZOP
  • Have the opportunity to participate in HAZOP exercise in a safe environment
  • Opportunity to share HAZOP experiences

At the end of the session, the participants should:

  • Understand the responsibilities of all parties in the HAZOP
  • Have experience in a HAZOP session.
  • Understand the outcomes from a HAZOP session

20% royalty will harm O&G industry

October 18, 2014

Dateline 2014-08-07, Borneo Post Online:

An increase in cash payments, which some people prefer to call royalty, by Petronas to the state and federal governments would have an adverse impact on the project viability and the industry at large, according to the vice president of Malaysia Petroleum Management, Adif Zulkifli.

He said that if the cash payments were to be increased to 20 per cent for Sabah, some projects undertaken by Petronas may be in jeopardy.

The immediate impact would be projects being dropped by foreign investors, investors’ confidence will be eroded and the country’s energy security will be at risk, he said.

Adif said the mid-term impact would be contract and opportunity losses for supporting industry, no further exploration activities and retrenchment.
