DNV GL - Oil & Gas: Expert Hazard Awareness Course - 2019 | Spadeadam Research and Testing | Tuesday, 26. March 2019

The expert course provides delegates with an understanding of the potential consequences of hydrocarbon releases in the oil and gas industry by reference to key experimental research, modelling and major incidents. Attendees will develop their technical understanding of dispersion, fires and explosions and the relevance to incident development through a series of classroom sessions, workshops and live practical demonstrations. The course is accredited by the IChemE and counts as 9.5 hours of continued professional development (CPD).
Course content
Live demonstrations, lectures and workshops led by industry experts will cover the following topics:

Outflow and dispersion, including:

Factors affecting fluid outflow from a loss of containment event
Important considerations on vapour production, dispersion and build-up of flammable clouds
Relevance to releases on onshore and offshore facilities and from pipelines.

Explosions, including:

Why ignition of some flammable clouds produces damaging pressures 
Major vapour cloud explosions and relevance of deflagration to detonation transition in real site conditions
Selection of modelling tools for explosions and their effects
Explosion loading and mitigation. 

Fires, including:

Types of fires
Fire characteristics and how these relate to the potential consequences and mitigation for real facilities
Modelling of fire events.

The relevance of the technical aspects will be reviewed in workshops focussed on several major accidents. This will reinforce the key learnings from the course.
The following types of incidents will be demonstrated:

Liquid nitrogen spill
Butane vapour cloud deflagration
Confined, vented explosion
Spindle, ****** and large jet fires
Kerosene jet fire
Methanol and diesel pool fires
Hydrogen detonation.
