ESP OVERVIEW

• What is Ensure Safe Production?


A set of work processes to know and understand operating limits and staying within them.

• Objective:
To increase and sustain reliability by operating our plants safely and efficiently
• Limits are defined and controlled
• Corrective Actions are taken and recorded
• Early failure detection by Proactive monitoring
• Empowerment to stabilize, slow down or shut down to prevent unsafe operating conditions.
• Maintain Situational Awareness

PRO ACTIVE HOW TO SET UP
Situational Awareness

Typical content of a Proactive Monitoring Plan


• What: The parameter or condition being monitored, e.g. temperature,
pressure, etc.
• Who: Owner (person who will monitor), e.g. shift operator, engineer,
inspector, etc.
• How : Method of monitoring, e.g. DCS, field round, laboratory test,
simulation, etc.
• When: Frequency of monitoring, e.g. hourly, daily, weekly, etc.
• Reporting requirements: each shift, monthly, ad hoc in the event of an issue,
etc.
• Mitigation or corrective actions: for abnormal situations such as limit
exceedences or trends likely to lead to exceedences, e.g. reduce reboil ratio,
correct pH, reduce/increase setpoint.
• Escalation philosophy and guidance: e.g. inform Shift Supervisor, Operations
specialist, external supplier, etc.

KEY POINTS

Proactive Monitoring - Key points to remember

• Only the trend of the data will yield information on the direction, speed and
acceleration of any change in the Parameter observed.

• Limits will trigger an early deviation and need to defined (normal operating
ranges NOT alarm limits)

• The observed data must reflect the monitored parameter its true behavior in
order for the information to be valid.

• Relationships between monitored parameters must be understood to be able


to isolate cause and effect.

– Take preventative action to avoid hitting alarm points
– Alarm summary is nearly blank, nearly all the time

TO DEFINE THE PARAMETERS

1. Assign Pro Active Monitoring (PAM) Team (Experienced Panel Operators, Process
Engineering)

2. Unit by unit asses which tags need to be monitored


• typically changes within 12 -24 hr. window
• typical review interval every 2 hours
• use the limits set in the “DCS tag database” (use a single reference for limits)

3. Compile a long list of parameters

4. Review the long list and compress into a shortlist (max 40 trends per “panel”)

5. Implement and track monitoring activities

6. A subset of the variable could be included in the shift report (as key process variables)

Feed and Product Flow Rates Critical input streams and output streams need to be monitored regularly (at least every 2 x x
hours) as these are subject to change based on upstream and downstream upsets or
change in mode of operation.
Quality Parameters in FEED and The online analyzers for feed and product streams need to be monitored from time to time x x
Product Streams (at least every 2 hours) as any change in these could indicate deviation from normal
operation. Regular verification (daily) of analyzer readings with lab analysis validates the
analyzer performance.
Critical Tags as per Unit Operating Critical tags need to be identified for periodic monitoring (every 2 hours on an average) x
Window with their defined limits to aid the panel operator in prevent exceedance of the limit.
These tags can be selected from the operating envelope, Integrity Operating Window and
Safe Operating Limit tags.
Critical Equipment and Auxiliary Operating parameters of critical equipment and their auxiliaries need to be monitored x x
Performance timely during the shift. It is recommended to note these parameters twice during the shift
totaling to 4 times per day.
Interphase Levels on Separators A key parameter to be monitored especially for feed gas separators as the inter-phase x
levels if not monitored properly can lead to flaring/gas blow by. Monitoring of these
interface levels is done regularly (every 2 hours on an average) (Plant)

Product Storage and Export Product inventory levels need to be noted as certain storage tanks/spheres are designed x
for continuous export and can hold inventory only for few days. Export flow rates need to
be monitored as well as per customer requirement. Typically storage and export
parameters are recorded on a daily basis.
Status of Flare Valves and Flow to All key connection to flares need to be identified and displayed on a separate x
Flares panel/monitor for the panel operator’s surveillance. Monitoring of valves lined up to the
flare is typically done every 2-4 hours. Camera and CCTV footage needs to be monitored
frequently for changes in the flares.
Overridden Tags and Inhibited Tags closely monitor all overridden tags and inhibited tags to ensure timely intervention in case x x
of failure of other safeguards. The override register is validated before handover and is
discussed during the handover
Controllers on Manual The controllers that have been changed to manual mode of operation during certain x x
upsets or due to process requirement, need to be recorded and monitored until
normalization. A register needs to be maintained for the same. This register is validated
before handover and is discussed during the handover
Emission Monitoring from Stacks CEMS and PEMS data needs to be monitored at regular intervals (ideally twice per shift) to x
ensure process performance and compliance to emissions in accordance to ADNOC COP.
Deviations from normal operations can be detected at an early stage and correctively
actions can be taken accordingly.

MONITORING SUMMARY

• A picture speaks thousand words: Trends and associated graphics designed into a
standard scientific and engineered view of the process utilizing Operator experience.

• Operator should “walk” the unit using the Control Room Operator rounds (PI/DCS
trending displays) to assess the current state of the process frequently

• Prevention of unsafe conditions and offspec, as defined by the Limits, clearly requires
knowledge of where the variables and process is headed and how quickly.

• It is not good practice to wait for notification of an unsafe condition by an


alarm.

• By providing standardized and structured Control Operator rounds, each Operator will
see the process from the same perspective and have the advantage of the cumulative
knowledge that went into constructing the round.

- Local instruments and ad hoc field measurements
- Temperature, pressure, level, flow, control valve position / by pass, intensity,

We know our limits and Operate within those at all times

• Picture speaks a thousand words – patterns are remembered.


• Use of field operators senses is essential: physically be at the equipment
• Limits must be defined
• Limit trends to the mots important: The overhead trends should show key safety and performance
variables of the plant
• Everyone in must KNOW what it means when a trend is going upwards / downwards and understand the
response to it– document them!
• A systematic approach is needed for PAM rounds– coach this and plan for it
• Plan ahead for activities that will take place – think about mitigation – ask about it.
• Know from each other (field and panel) what you are doing at each point
• Know and understand the effect of change of status to equipment
• Understand what the knock on effect is it parameters/conditions are changed.
• Supervisors are monitoring as well
