Pipeline Safety Management

Companies must consider all the relevant risk factors to comply with government regulations, factors such as the likelihood of a pipeline release occurring and how a release could affect the high consequence area. A proactive approach, coupled with properly planned and implemented PSMs, can help minimize loss of life, environmental impact, equipment damage, citations and litigation.

Pipeline Hazard Analysis

We can provide senior safety engineers with experience in conducting pipeline HAZOP studies or FMEAs. These methodologies are applied to identify hazards due to design, construction or third-party intervention and estimate relative risk.

Pipeline Vulnerability/Risk Analysis

Since 9/11, concern over the vulnerability of utility systems, including pipelines, has increased significantly. By reviewing pipeline routes and operational surveillances aspects, we pinpoint areas of vulnerability with high potential impact. We then assess the impact of loss-of-containment events from pipelines and provide an accurate determination of the hazard zones for flammable vapor clouds and jet fires.

Pipeline Reliability/Availability

ioMosaic has considerable experience in applying reliability analysis to utility systems, such as LNG vaporizers and power-generating plants. The same methodology is applied to transmission pipelines to determine capacity utilization and availability.
