Simplification of the design process for pressure protection systems

SHARE:
PRINT:
Design of pressure protection system is a task that typically falls between disciplines; Process safety, Technical safety and Pipeline design. A variety of different codes applies (e.g. topside, pipeline, subsea, instrumentation) both prescriptive, goal based or probabilistic requirements. This makes design of pressure protection systems complex.

Design of pressure protection system is a task that typically falls between disciplines; Process safety, Technical safety and Pipeline design. A variety of different codes applies (e.g. topside, pipeline, subsea, instrumentation) both prescriptive, goal based or probabilistic requirements. This makes design of pressure protection systems complex.

Solutions

Establish a code bridging document covering; pressure levels, barrier philosophy and pressure protection trigger levels. It will also include challenges with respect to interface to different operators and availability of system.

Benefits

Provide a simplify decision process with respect to pressure protection systems and interfaces between pipelines.

Value

Increased confidence in pressure protection system and potentially reduced pipe wall thickness.

Decreased decision time.
