Safety Distance Study
Safety Distance Study is conducted to review the exposure of the hazard from hydrocarbon fire &explosion and toxic release from process facility to adjacent population area. Buffer Zone Assessment Study is delivered as quantitative analysis to demonstrate the safety distance analysis (fire zone, restricted area and impacted area) of Refineries Facilities and societal risk for each adjacent population area, the acceptable risk level based on ALARP methodology.
The study is conducted to:
- Identify the impact of fires and explosions consequence to be represented as safety distance of fire zone, restricted area and impacted area (buffer zone)
- Elaborate Fire & Explosion Risk Analysis (FERA) using quantitative approach related to event frequency, probability and consequence impact based on Center of Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) methodology.
- Develop societal risk contours and F-N Curve for potential hazards within Refineries Facilities as well as interaction with its surrounding population areas.
- Evaluate risk results in order to comply with tolerable risk value in As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) region and develop recommendation to perform risk reduction if required.
