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

Let Sabah have all 10% oil royalty – UPKO

October 23, 2014

Dateline 2014-08-10, Borneo Post Online:

United Pasokmomogun Kadazandusun Murut Organisation (UPKO) yesterday urged the Federal Government, which is receiving a five per cent share of the oil royalty from Petronas, to instead give it to the oil producing states.

“We in Upko have been saying all along, there is an urgent need for Sabah, being an oil producing state, to be given more than the five per cent share it is getting at the moment. I wish to reiterate our party congress resolutions for several years now, that the most practical solution is for Putrajaya to give its share to Sabah. This is doable,” said Upko acting president Datuk Madius Tangau.
