Featured Case Studies


Corporate Guidance On Risk Management

The chemical company of a large integrated energy company was developing a corporate standard for LOPA, which incorporated a risk ranking matrix. The company was interested in obtaining an independent review of the design of the risk matrix, and in benchmarking the underlying risk tolerability criteria with generally accepted industry norms.

View Case Study
A large Canadian refinery was performing risk assessments to identify personnel, environmental, and operational hazards in order to satisfy legal and business requirements. This work was being done on a planned schedule, with each unit being reviewed annually. The challenge was to use Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) methodologies that provided an effective analysis appropriate to the particular unit to be studied and the potential hazards.
When a tank car failed at a customer’s plant, a release of toxic gas occurred. Our client, the supplier of the chemical, was the subject of a class action lawsuit.

A major pulp and paper manufacturing company in Mississippi determined that its process safety management (PSM) program had to do more than merely follow OSHA regulations; they wanted it to also be effective in preventing accidents.

PSM Frequently Asked Questions

Does your facility need a PSM program? Is your PSM program effectively implemented?

If your facility uses, stores, manufactures, handles, or moves flammable or highly hazardous chemicals on site above the threshold quantity (TQ), OSHA does require PSM implementation. Learn the facts about process safety management.

Our Team

Marcel Amorós Martí

Director and Partner

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.

Project Sampling

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.
