Course objectives and scope

This expert course aims to provide delegates with an understanding of the potential effects and consequences of hydrocarbon releases in the oil and gas industry. Attendees will develop their understanding of dispersion, fires and explosions through a series of classroom sessions, discussions 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 and lectures presented by industry experts will cover the following topics.
  • Fires, including:
    • How do fires occur?
    • Characteristics of jet and pool fires
    • How fires cause damage and how the potential for damage can be assessed
    • Mitigation.
  • Dispersion, including:
    • Characteristics of vapour dispersion following a liquid spill
    • Potential effects of delayed ignition
    • Gas accumulation within confined structures
    • Dispersion of releases in onshore and offshore facilities and from pipelines.
  • Explosions, including:
    • Mechanism for pressure generation in congested process regions
    • Effect of confinement and congestion on explosions
    • Deflagration to detonation transition
    • Methods for estimating explosion loading and mitigation. 

The following types of incidents will be demonstrated:

  • Liquid nitrogen spill
  • Confined, vented explosion
  • Spindle, flange and large jet fires
  • Methanol and diesel pool fires.
