Course Overview

This course provides an overview of process safety engineering fundamentals for hydrocarbon
processing facilities, with emphasis on the upstream oil & gas sector. Techniques for analyzing and
mitigating process safety hazards applicable to oil and gas processing will be reviewed. Integration the concepts covered to achieve a measured approach to Process Safety Engineering is a key aim of
this course.
