HAZOP Studies (Hazard and Operability Studies)
HAZOP study is the assessment on adequacy of safety measures taken by industries vis-avis the hazards present and is primarily carried for chemical industries.
Any plant operation sometimes involve deviation from design parameters during the operation. HAZOP study is a structured methodology to identify all possible deviations of the process parameters namely temperature, pressure, composition, direction of flow etc, and all the consequences associated with each deviations. The deviation is also correlated to the safety interlocks, instrumentation and administrative procedure related to the operation.
The output of HAZOP is a list of possible deviations, their causes, consequences, safety measures and additional safety measures required to avoid consequences. Study involves a multidisciplinary team of plant personnel and NSC experts (who lead the HAZOP team) in those fields.
NSC is conducting HAZOP Studies in Refinery, LPG Recovery plant, Compressor stations, Oil pipelines, Power plant, Chemical and Petrochemical Industries with the help of members in our expert panel.
