OCG can perform assessments of explosion risk using industry-leading consequence modelling tools. Typical assessments include:

  • Worst-case assessments

  • Probabilistic assessments (for example to determine DALs or as input into QRA)

  • Blast propagation

  • Mitigation optimisation

Risk-based approaches to explosion management are a key part of the design of any new installation and the development of its safety case. The application of risk-based methods is also important in supporting decision making in operations, particularly where there is a change from the original design assumptions.

Using advanced and rigorous statistical techniques, our approach delivers a clear understanding of how uncertainties (due to, for example, the input data) propagate through the analysis. This removes the concern with traditional studies where single values are often presented without any associated error bars, which then get fed directly into design and hence prevents facilities being under designed.
