Course Description

Introduction

This online training course covers gas explosion hazards and other hazards encountered on LNG facilities. It addresses all aspects of hazards associated with vapor cloud explosions (VCEs): ignition processes, release and dispersion, explosion mechanisms, blast load and modeling of all these aspects.

It is essential for fire safety and risk management personnel to understand the principles of fires and explosions in order to determine how fires start and spread, and how explosions occur. Expert knowledge of hazardous area classification is also vital to enabling proper selection and installation of equipment to be used safely in hazardous LNG environments.

In this GLOMACS online training course, you will acquire comprehensive knowledge on the causes and properties of explosions, with an emphasis on those involving gases.

Through this online training course, you will:

  • Understand the properties of flammable and explosive materials as well as their ignition mechanisms
  • Discover how mechanical and system failures contribute to major accidents
  • Learn about common fire detectors, alarm systems and procedures
  • Understand the purpose of classifying hazardous areas, materials and temperature
  • Understand equipment protection plans
  • Understand LNG release and dispersion
  • Understand LNG safety regulations
  • Understand Explosion modelling
  • Understand Mitigation
  • Understand Preventive measures
  • Understand Consequence models and QRA methodology
  • Understand The oil and gas industry structure
  • Understand the LNG project lifecycle

Objectives

The aim of this online training course is to provide the participants with the knowledge and skills to understand the various hazards of LNG Facilities and how to mitigate pro activate emergency response to incidents.

By the end of the online training seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basics and important parameters governing vapor cloud explosion (VCEs) and other known hazards
  • Be aware of release and accidents statistics and have knowledge of some important offshore accidents that have occurred
  • Understand the accident chain of events
  • Understand various preventive measures to reduce the occurrence of accidents and various mitigation and control techniques to reduce gas explosion consequences
  • Learn the various explosion modeling techniques that may be applied and understand the importance of using advanced 3D modeling for gas analysis
  • Learn the different gas explosion analyses methods and when they may be applied
  • Understand how gas explosion loads can be integrated with the responses of structures

Training Methodology

This online training course will utilize a variety of proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, retention of the information presented. The training course is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of any location of your choice.
