Process Safety Master Class for Ethylene Engineers
16 October 2017, 08:30–17:30 at the Gulf Hotel

EMET 2016 offered a one-day master class which was on the 16 October at the Gulf Hotel. This workshop was presented in two parts:

Part 1: An introduction to CCPS' Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) approach, including the four pillars and twenty elements that define the structure for the RBPS approach. In addition, the workshop included ethylene-specific process safety examples and case studies. This workshop served as an excellent starting point for the exploration of the steps and procedures involved in providing a safe operating environment.

Charles Cowley, Staff Consultant, Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS)

Part 2: Technical presentations by ethylene subject matter experts on three process safety hazards of critical importance to ethylene producers. Each speakers presented:
a) The technical and engineering principles associated with the process hazard
b) Examples and ethylene plant case studies
c) Tools and practices used to manage the hazard

Moderator: Mr. Gregory Yeo, Chief Engineer, ExxonMobil Chemical
Autorefrigeration: Mr. Ralph King, Stress Engineering, retired from Lyondell-Basell
NOx Gums & Salts: Dr. Dane Grenoble, Consultant, retired from ExxonMobil Chemical
Exothermic Reactors: Mr. Pascal Coenen, Licensing Technical Manager, Shell Global Solutions
