1.1

PDO Permit to Work System
Scope
This Permit to Work (PTW) System Manual shall be used in all areas under the control of PDO. The Manual explains the “Principles of Permitry” and defines activities for which a Permit to Work is required. It also states how Permits are approved and controlled. Section 15 of the Manual gives detail guidance on how the PTW System shall be used in specific work situations. Permits are issued by PDO for work in areas where there may be a hazard to Personnel, Asset, or Environment. These hazards may not necessarily be related to hydrocarbons. Safety requirements for work in non-hydrocarbon areas are described in other relevant HSE procedures within PDO.

1.2

Objectives
The PDO Health, Safety and Environmental Management System Manual states that the Company will endeavour to protect the health and safety of personnel protect the environment and provide a safe and healthy workplace. The PTW System is an important part of the way that PDO meets the requirements of this Policy. The Objective of the PTW system is “To provide a system to ensure that non-routine, hazardous activities can be worked on in a safe manner”. To achieve safety at the workplace, the PTW system must ensure that everyone is aware of the hazards involved in their work, and of the precautions they must take to work safely. To help ensure this, the Permit to Work System requires: Training: Licensing: To ensure everyone understands the PTW System and how to use it. People signing Permits must be tested to ensure they understand the System and have sufficient knowledge of hazards and controls to manage safe working. To ensure that work is well planned, with the workforce and equipment prepared for the job. To ensure that everyone understands the work content, and how and where it shall be done. To ensure that the hazards involved in the work are identified, and the precautions and personal protection required for a task are correctly defined. To prevent conflicting activities from being authorised. To ensure that all personnel understand the work content and the Job HSE Plan. Formal approval to do the work. Providing a person in charge of each work site, who is responsible for ensuring that work party complies with the requirements of the Permit to Work. Toolbox Talks at the worksite to discuss the job, how it will be done, and the precautions required. PR-1172 – Permit to Work System

7.1

Control of Isolations
Isolation Requirements
The following requirements apply to all isolations.

7.1.1

Competency The Responsible Supervisor must ensure that the person nominated to do an Isolation/De-Isolation is competent for the task.

7.1.2

Security Each isolation is to be secured in the required position so that the accidental release of the energy source (or obstruction of draining/venting) is prevented.

7.1.3

Labelling The isolation is to be labelled with a high visibility “Isolation Label” so that anyone can immediately see why an isolation is in place, and should not be tampered with.

7.1.4

Recording Process isolations are to be recorded on the Mechanical Isolation Certificate, together with marked-up PEFS or line diagrams. The only exception is Unrecorded Isolations, as described in 7.6.

7.1.5

Visibility and Co-ordination The Area Authority must record all isolated equipment on the Permit Location Boards (See Section 8). This is done to help the Responsible Supervisor and Area Authority to ensure that equipment is only isolated or de-isolated when it is safe to do so.

7.2

Electrical Systems
All electrical isolations are to be done in accordance with the Electrical Safety Rules (ESRs) and Electrical Safety Operational Procedures (ESOPs.)

7.3

Mechanical Systems
Mechanical Isolations are to be done in accordance with PR-1076 – Isolation of Process Equipment.

7.4

Approval for Isolation
All isolations, except Unrecorded Isolations, must be fully described on an Isolation Certificate, and must be accompanied by a marked up PEF showing the extent of the isolation and the isolation points. All documented mechanical Isolations are to be authorised by the Responsible Supervisor, who must define the isolation point and sign Box 4 of the Mechanical Isolation Certificate. Electrical Isolations are to be approved in accordance with the requirements of Electrical Safety Rules (ESRs) and Electrical Safety Operating Procedures (ESOPs).

Petroleum Development Oman LLC 7.5 Permits for Spading

Revision 7.0 Effective: Apr-10

When it is necessary to fit blanks or spades to isolate equipment, a separate Permit is required to ensure that the isolation of vessel or system is controlled properly before the work on the vessel/system can start.

7.6

Unrecorded Isolations
It is not necessary to record mechanical isolations on the Isolation Certificate if BOTH of the following conditions are met: a. The isolation is to be done by a competent person from Operations Department, nominated by the Responsible Supervisor, for the purpose of calibration or minor repair/replacement work that he will do himself, and The isolation will be removed before the end of the working period.

b.

Minor repair/replacement work is work that can be done without the person doing the work leaving the worksite. Examples are pressure gauge replacement, isolations for faultfinding etc. In this situation, the requirement for Isolation is to be included in the Work Description on the Permit.

7.7
7.7.1

Isolation Process
Isolation When the isolation has been approved by the Responsible Supervisor, the Permit Holder is to take the Permit and Isolation Certificate, if applicable, to the Area Authority or appropriate Electrical Person, to request isolation. The Area Authority or Electrical Person is then to: • • Check the Permit Location Board to ensure that the isolation will not conflict with any other work. When satisfied that it is safe to isolate, carry out the line walk of the system to be isolated, implement the isolation, tag and secure of the valves/switches etc., as required by 7.7.2 and 7.7.3. Prove that the isolation has fully isolated the systems and equipment from pressure/electricity as required by 7.7.4. If part of the isolation is at a remote location under the control of another Area Authority, fax a copy of the Isolation Certificate to that location and obtain a return fax with a signature that the remote isolation is complete. Sign the Isolation Certificate to confirm that isolation is complete. Then add the marker and details of the isolation to the Permit Location Board.

• •

7.7.2

Tagging of Isolation Points Every valve, spade, switch, breaker etc. used in an isolation (except for isolations that do not require Isolation Certificates), must be marked with the correct type of tag label. Tag labels are used for the isolation of Valves, Spades and Electrical Equipment (The tag label is shown in the PTW Materials Supply Catalogue). The tag label has three parts. The first part (the part of the tag with the attachment loop) is to be attached to the isolation point. The other two parts are to be attached to the Permit Issue Point copy of the Permit or Isolation Certificate and kept at the Issue Point until the isolation is removed.

This can normally be done by checks at vent valves or by the checks to prove electrical equipment dead required by ESRs/ESOPs.7.4 Proving of Isolations Whenever isolation is complete. the Permit Holder is to sign the Isolation Certificate to request de-isolation. The third part of the tag (the smallest part) is provided to assist in the removal of complex isolations.

Where the Station Operator is doing this. it is a routine watch keeping operation which does not require a Permit. in this case the excavation is to be treated similar to a mechanised excavation. The exception to this being in those Areas or Stations where there are no documented details of buried services.

Activities that can be carried out under a WLCTF and those to be carried out under PDO PTW system are clearly defined in PR-1098. the Permit can therefore be issued from 'C-Station'. It is the responsibility of the Well Engineering Supervisor to ensure all controls within the Job HSE plan are in place and monitored. and while the well is under transfer no work other than Well Engineering work should be done. This involves working within the control building and also using non-certified electrical equipment outside the control room within the plant fence.
