Process Safety Study with Definition of HIPPS Requirements

  • Client:

    Independent Oil Company
  • Field:

    North Sea Field

Using high-fidelity simulations to determine the key performance parameters for High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS)

In brief:

BPT used a detailed dynamic model of the system subject to high pressure source to determine the performance for HIPPS protecting low pressure side.

Benefits and key findings:
  • Defined safety requirement specification (SRS) for the HIPPS including valve, actuator and logic solver time
  • The HIPPS set point was defined
  • The HIPPS response time was verified sufficient
  • The valve characteristic and closure time were defined
