MAR Consulting performed an extended review and quality assurance (QA) of a layers of protection analysis (LOPA) report for a chemical plant in Germany.
MAR Consulting supported the Client in performing a fault tree analysis (FTA) for hazardous scenarios in an onshore chemical facility. The scenarios to be analysed were deemed too complex to be handled in a traditional layer of protection analysis (LOPA). LOPA cannot be used for scenarios with a multitude of initiating causes and different combinations of independent protection layers (IPL) for each cause. Fault trees are more flexible and can be used to model the probability of occurrence of such hazardous scenarios.
MAR Consulting was contracted to examine an onshore LNG terminal in Norway. The objective of the day visit and inspection was to support a decision to invest from a potential buyer. MAR Consulting was sub-contracted by the engineering company responsible for the overall due diligence process.
