Abstract

A practical method for reviewing safety studies of chemical plants is presented and applied in an LPG plant. Initiating events leading to Loss of Containment and the relevant safety systems are identified. A Risk matrix for the entire plant is constructed, which contains both consequence severity and frequency of all possible accidents.
