Petrotechnics CEO set to Address Delegates at Leading Middle East Oil and Gas Safety Summit
12 September 2011
The Chief Executive of Petrotechnics, Phil Murray, is to speak at the 3rd Annual Process Safety Management Summit, being held in Abu Dhabi from the 18-21 September.
Petrotechnics, the global leader in providing frontline work execution solutions to hazardous industries and creator of the Sentinel PRO® system, will share its extensive knowledge on process best practices with delegates attending the conference. The company’s integrated safe system of work solution is already operational at multiple sites in the Gulf, including one of the world’s largest complexes of offshore platforms for a US major based in Qatar.
Mr Murray will discuss the how technology can be used to embed Process Safety Management (PSM) into operational processes in the region, demonstrate ways in which companies can manage their work activity and explain how capturing vital work metrics can provide an operational window on real-time frontline risks.
Process safety management is being implemented across the oil, gas and petrochemical industries in the Middle East to ensure risk control and prevent hazardous accidents. Petrotechnics’ involvement will prove a vital contribution to the industry-led event. The company is also an associate sponsor of the annual event.
Sentinel PRO® provides an effective solution to the challenges in the unstructured and dynamic nature of managing operations, maintenance and associated activity in the hazardous process industries. It manages frontline work execution by providing an operational structure for rules, procedures and processes, linking permits to work with the risk assessment and isolation management processes. This creates a fully integrated control of work system that records frontline work execution data.
The system allows operators to work more efficiently, incorporating clear process flows for request and approval of work, a direct link to relevant operating procedures, readily-accessible archives of previous work (including lessons learned) and area, site and plant-level overview of all controlled work by approval stage, location, time, type and risk level.
Mr Murray said: “The Middle East offers a highly promising market and well-developed supporting infrastructure, but there is always scope for continued focus on ensuring the correct processes are in place across the region.
” This conference will present an excellent opportunity to exchange initiatives and information and I am looking forward to the chance to share my knowledge, providing support and solutions to current and prospective customers, while meeting with the key players from some of the industry’ s leading companies.”
