Oil and Gas producers around the world need to reduce cost and time-to-market. This pressure on designers to achieve compliant safe relief systems with existing commercial tools leads to oversimplification of design issues and inherent risk.

Siemens’ gFLARE software has the power both to perform simple screening and to build unlimited detail to address complex process safety issues. It combines the tasks of many software tools, eliminating data transfer errors and improving execution.

The seminar will showcase the gFLARE technology that is helping Oil & Gas operators and EPC designers globally to resolve depressuring, fire survivability and flare capacity safety issues on new-build and existing assets, while minimizing design costs and project CAPEX.

The seminar will describe the complete range of software capabilities and how the technology is applied to common design problems, illustrated with project examples complemented with live demonstrations of the software. Registered users will be able to participate in a ‘hands-on’ session to explore a typical depressuring problem using the software via the SPSE cloud-based training server.

Agenda outline

At the seminar you will learn about the following key topics:

  • SPSE Overview
  • Applications and benefits of model based safety analysis
  • Introducing the gPROMS suite and gFLARE capabilities
  • Project case studies showing the benefits of the technology
  • Hands on session / presentation case study for low temperature, fire survivability, flare capacity and temperature propagation

Who should attend

Process Designers, Technical Authorities, production support managers and personnel with an interest in the design of depressuring, relief and flare systems.
