Our multifaceted approach takes into consideration the needs of regulators, engineering contractors and most importantly, you. LNG terminals, send-out facilities and associated pipelines, and power plants around the world rely on our extensive experience to complete QRAs, HAZOP and hazard identification studies, safety integrity level (SIL) reviews, and consequence analysis modeling.
As the head of our California office and lead of our PSM practice, Mr. Amorós Martí’s experience consists of a diverse range of industries from chemical and petrochemical to oil and gas and utilities. He is skilled in both the technical and project management aspects of process safety and loss prevention.
Mr. Amorós Martí's expertise includes pressure relief and flare systems design for large chemical and petrochemical companies around the globe and in the United States. He specializes in evaluating the risk of chemical, petroleum, and pharmaceutical process facilities, including: identifying hazardous scenarios, estimating the frequency, modeling the consequences, and leading the decision-making process for implementing suitable and cost-effective safeguards.
In addition, Mr. Amorós Martí has authored many industry white papers and publications, and he is an avid participant at major technical conferences in the U.S. and internationally. He also facilitates training related to process safety management and pressure relief and flare systems design.
Conducted advanced dynamic simulations for PRFS design of reactive systems, including fire-induced thermal decomposition reactive cases and two-phase dynamic modeling.
Conducted LOPA studies for oil and gas refineries to identify existing layers of protection in order to decrease the risk levels, estimated via QRA to a tolerable limit.
Conducted consequence modeling and QRA studies involving a wide array of toxic and flammable materials. Knowledgeable in providing recommendations for optimizing the implementation of specific risk reduction measures intended to prevent and/or mitigate the actual level of risk, emergency planning implementation, recommending land-use planning decision-making, and analyzing both facility siting and potential domino effects triggered by explosions and fires.
Led the effort to design a complex fluid curtain system to mitigate toxic dispersions from several process units in an oil and gas facility. The design included defining the system parameters such as spray nozzle characteristics, fluid type, flow requirements, and solubility, as well as ensuring operation as an Independent Protection Layer (IPL).
Taught the PHA/HAZOP Leader Course on team leader concepts, techniques for effective facilitation, a review of PHA revalidations, and PHA methodologies such as HAZOP, What-if and Checklist methodologies.

Although non-equilibrium flow and rapid phase transitions (RPT) are well researched, the literature published so far does not explicitly quantify the RPT phenomenon or provide reliable methods for the calculation of non-equilibrium flow for mixtures. Download this paper for a clear understanding of how non-equilibrium flow and rapid phase transitions develop and how they should be quantified for pure components and mixtures alike.
Companies have implemented their process safety management programs to comply with OSHA and EPA requirements, but they continue to have accidents. Process safety management programs can meet the letter of the law, but may not be effective in preventing accidents. Traditional audit programs look at documentation and procedures, but do little to evaluate the program quality or effectiveness.
An international consumer products manufacturer suffered a significant business interruption due to failure of a critical support facility. This incident raised the question of whether there were other critical support facilities that could cause a similar interruption in production or a significant safety or environmental impact.
The California Energy Commission had been directed to assist in the development of clean alternate transportation fuels. As part of this effort they are supporting the commercialization of fuel cell vehicles operating on hydrogen fuel. In order to be used extensively in the transportation sector, the safety of hydrogen production, storage, and supply needs to be addressed.
