Control and Safety in Gas and Oil Complex Industries

202403novAll Day07Control and Safety in Gas and Oil Complex Industries

Course Details


This workshop is designed to provide instrumentation and control system engineers and technicians with the basic theoretical and practical tools that will enable them to evaluate, design, install, and maintain safety instrumented systems (SILs). The programmer will identify the driving forces, the warning signals, the uncertainties, and the inevitabilities. These ideas will compose the plots and stimulate their interaction – YOU will identify all the challenges and elicit the response. This formula, adopting the value of an informal, strategic conversation between all parties will stimulate a series of detailed verbal reactions by key decision-makers that will examine YOUR reactions to that ‘unexpected’ crisis.


Day 1: Introduction to safety instrumentation Systems

  • Overview of safety systems engineering (SSE)
  • Introduction to standards IEC 61508, IEC 61511 and ISA S84.01
