Safety Instrumented Systems, Cybersecurity: Industry Viewpoints

The need for independence between the Basic Process Control System (BPCS) and the Safety Instrumented System (SIS) comes from basic principles of LOPA (Layers of Protection Analysis) to qualify Independent Protection Layers and is a requirement stated in Functional Safety Standards such as the IEC 61511.

Accordingly, Protection Layers are required to be independent of one another as well as independent of the initiating event for each hazard scenario under consideration.

This requires appropriate architectural design and selection of control and safety systems at an early stage of the project design, so as to allow the requirements of independence between the SIS and BPCS to be fulfilled and thereby ensure safe and reliable operations of the process plant.

In this webinar, we examine the practical considerations for independence of the SIS and the BPCS and thus avoid common cause failures between these two protection layers.

Generating Consistent High Quality HAZOP and LOPA Studies Using Cloud Computing Technology

Process Hazards Analysis (PHA) is a well-understood necessity for understanding the hazards posed by plants and ensuring the appropriate degree of safeguards are available to ensure that risk is tolerable. PHA started in the 1970s and is now ubiquitous. Documentation of PHA started with pencil and paper worksheets, but quickly moved to desktop PC programs. Unfortunately, there has not been much progress since that time.

The current state of PHA documentation is a collection of desktop computer files that are distributed on multiple file servers and laptops of employees, contractors, and vendors. The files are usually inconsistent with each other because each facilitator or each company site utilizes different file structures and different nomenclature, making a comparison of documents, benchmarking, and dashboarding impossible. Also, the fact that so many documents have been generated with no mechanism to export data leaves customers locked into obsolete software that has continually increased maintenance costs along with decreases and flexibility in terms of service. Attempts to improve the situation using large central database systems have also failed due to these systems being slow, inflexible, and lacking the ability to perform remote work where internet access is not available.

This presentation discusses how to improve PHA quality while reducing effort and cost by changing and standardizing the technology that underpins how PHA data is stored and accessed. Instead of proprietary desktop formats or heavy, monolithic SQL databases, the modern language of the internet can be used to store, move, and manipulate data. By defining and standardizing a data “schema” in the internet standard JavaScript Object Notation (“JSON”) format, data can be effortlessly shared among multiple different applications and multiple files can be “rolled up” for dashboarding and comparison of data. All this can be done without sacrificing the ability to work offline and remotely and then synchronize with the overall database. Sophisticated cloud-based tools can then be developed which will allow for the use of templates and libraries to ensure the highest quality standardized analysis for consistent results while providing a global enterprise platform that not only makes data accessible but also secure.

Innovative Emission Monitoring Technologies 2023

To tackle greenhouse gas emissions from the industrial sector, various strategies can be employed. These include improving energy efficiency, adopting renewable energy sources, utilizing combined heat and power systems, and implementing better material usage and recycling practices. However, certain industrial processes lack low-emission alternatives, necessitating long-term emission reduction through carbon capture and storage methods. The oil and gas production sector, a major methane contributor, is now subject to regulations requiring the detection and repair of leaks, capturing of natural gas, and emission limitation from equipment. Additionally, refineries and cement kilns are regulated for specific pollutants under the Clean Air Act, with performance standards continuously strengthened to protect human health and the environment.

Digital Transformation in Energy

As digital technologies become more widely deployed and integrated across the process industries new ways of working are being uncovered. Initially these digital technologies were utilized to allow rapid availability of traditional performance KPI’s and operations targets but as they become more entrenched and as digital technologies develop in capability new work processes are emerging. Drawing from recent experience at Nigeria LNG (NLNG) and Cheniere LNG the presentation will demonstrate how the Digital Twin and layered analytics are being used to meet plant operations challenges from safety, asset management and optimization through to sustainability and predictive maintenance.

The Importance of Codes, Standards and Third-Party Performance Approval of Fixed Gas and Flame Detectors

This webinar will discuss End Users’ specifications and data sheets for fixed gas and flame detectors that are required to protect US$ multi-million facilities and focus on specifying the correct codes, standards, and third-party performance approval. Preparing the correct project data sheet, as well as the applicable codes and standards - in particular demanding performance approval for each product - to the latest edition will be the best way to ensure the detector will perform on demand in the way it is supposed to. This will not only better protect assets, but also the lives of the people working in the hazardous areas.

Getting the Most from HART in the Age of Digitalization and the IIoT - South East Asia

Field instruments that support the HART communication protocol represent the largest quantity of devices installed in the process automation industry. For the near future, new instrument shipments will predominantly be HART-enabled.

While traditionally used for setup and configuration, HART technology provides a broad array of maintenance and diagnostic features that dramatically improve operational efficiency.

Coupling HART-IP enabled infrastructure with new device integration software technologies dramatically simplifies access to HART information and enables a new class of monitoring and optimisation features in traditional asset management systems as well as intra-web-based applications.

In this webinar, Phoenix Contact will explain how HART instruments can be connected for easy access to digital data. Then FieldComm Group will discuss why users need to begin asking for FDI Device Packages and FDI-enabled host software from their instrument and system suppliers so that they might get the greatest value from their HART instruments.
