Abstract:
More than 70% of accidents that occur on offshore installations are result of hydrocarbon explosions and fires, which, because they involve blast effects and heat, are extremely hazardous and have serious consequences in terms of human health, structural safety and the surrounding environment. Most such accidents are caused by gas leaks, which, if undetected, can lead to the formation of a concentrated gas cloud that can ignite or explode. An effective gas detection system is important for preventing gas-related catastrophic accidents and can mitigate risk on offshore installations. The aim of this study is to develop a risk-based methodology to aid the initial placement of gas detectors for an efficient gas detection system that will function optimally in all possible scenarios on offshore installations.
