The course is suitable for new users and for more experienced users who have not attended a formal training course or would like a refresher course. An understanding of the concepts of QRA and frequency analysis is required, as is some experience of using this technology in the process industry.
SA-08 Leak training
This course provides an introduction to the concepts and models within Leak, DNV GL’s leak frequency database application based on the UK HSE Hydrocarbon release database. All the key aspects of setting up a frequency analysis project in Leak are covered in the course.
Some of the topics included are:
- Selecting the calculation basis (hole size or release rate)
- Adding equipment items
- Determining base elements
- Defining release rate/hole size categories
- Defining output categories
You will be required to practise and apply their new knowledge of the software through a hands-on workshop.
Upon completion of this course, you will understand and be able to use the theoretical and practical aspects of Leak. You will learn how to assess leak frequencies for process plants using the data and analysis tools with Leak.
Users who need to calculate leak frequencies for releases of hazardous material on process plants. Participants are likely to be from regulatory authorities, insurance industry, engineering contractors and consultants.
