Game Theory for Managing Security in Chemical Industrial Areas Book Excerpt:

This book systematically studies how game theory can be used to improve security in chemical industrial areas, capturing the intelligent interactions between security managers and potential adversaries. The recent unfortunate terrorist attacks on critical infrastructures show that adversaries are intelligent and strategic. Game theoretic models have been extensively used in some domains to model these strategic adversaries. However, there is a lack of such advanced models to be employed by chemical security managers. In this book, game theoretic models for protecting chemical plants as well as clusters are proposed. Different equilibrium concepts are explored, with user-friendly explanation of how to reflect them to realistic cases. Based on efficient analysis of the properties of security issues in chemical plants/clusters, models in this book are capable to support resources allocations, cost-effectiveness analysis, cooperation incentives and alike.

Applied Operational Excellence for the Oil Gas and Process Industries Book Excerpt:

Applied Operational Excellence for the Oil, Gas, and Process Industries offers a straightforward practical guide for oil and gas companies to understand the comparisons and contrasts between various types of safety management processes, including the standardized structure and ongoing extended benefits that operational excellence can bring to an oil and gas company. The goal of achieving operational excellence is to reduce costs, improve productivity, and enhance efficiency—in other words, operational excellence contributes to the bottom line. Following along with pre-built success in the process industries, many companies in the oil and gas industry appear to use a subset form of operational excellence, yet many are unsure or unaware of all the safety system components that will truly benefit the company holistically, and current literature is only applicable to the process and manufacturing industries. Packed with clear objectives and tools, structure guidelines specific to oil and gas, and guidance for how to imbed your existing safety program under the operational excellence umbrella known as "One-Step Merger," this book will help you establish an overall safety culture vision and challenge your organization to achieve higher levels of safety management and overall company value. Explores how to solidify a foundational operational excellence program applicable for your oil and gas company Clarifies the differences and benefits among various programs under operational excellence (OE), such as SHE (safety, health, and environment), PSM (process safety management), and SMS (safety management system) Explains how to audit and consistently assess how oil and gas OE systems are planned, implemented, and managed, with explanations on cost and time impacts as well as administrative protocols Includes a glossary, acronym appendix, and additional references for further reading

Fire Fighting Pumping Systems At Industrial Facilities Book Excerpt:

Written from the perspective of industrial users, this is the only book that describes how to install an effective firewater pumping system in a pragmatic and budget-conscious way rather than with purely the regulatory framework in mind. Based on the wide-ranging industrial experience of the author, this book is also the only one that deals with the particular risks and requirements of off-shore facilities. This book takes the reader beyond the prescriptive requirements of the fire code (NFPA, UL) and considers how to make the best choice of design for the budget available as well as how to ensure the other components of the pumping system and supporting services are optimized. The only alternative to guides written by regulatory enforcement bodies, this book is uniquely practical and objective – demonstrating how and why the standards need to be met Covers a wide range of industries, including those with exceptional requirements such as off-shore petroleum facilities and chemical plants Written by someone who has been responsible for the safety of large numbers of workers and billions of dollars worth of equipment, for those in similarly responsible positions

Safety and Security Review for the Process Industries Book Excerpt:

Drawing on decades of industry experience, well-known safety author and senior Loss Prevention specialist at Saudi Aramco Dennis Nolan has distilled the essential procedures and checklists into this practical guide. As well as guiding the reader through the selection and efficient and complete execution of the alphabet soup of Hazard Analysis and Safety Reviews (HAZOP, PHA, What-IF, SVA, LOPA, Bowtie...), Nolan shares his personal experience and illustrates otherwise dry procedures with real-world examples. Written from the perspective of the author's extensive experience in loss prevention and safety engineering, this comprehensive manual is intended to provide guidance on all the qualitative hazard analyses conducted for industrial and commercial processes, specifically for Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), What-If, and Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) review teams. It also demonstrates how the methodology and procedures used for these reviews can be adopted and applied to the Security Vulnerability Analysis (SVA) and Site Security Plan (SSP), requirements under the US Department of Homeland Security's Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standard (CFATS) of 2007. The book's pragmatic approach describes the responsibilities, methods, and documentation required for the performance of such procedures and demonstrates how to conduct them in a timely, effective, objective, and consistent manner as may be prescribed by a company's Process Safety Management (PSM) policy and security requirements. As well as updates throughout to reflect changing practices, the third edition incorporates a new section on cost/benefit analysis and descriptions of new qualitative and quantitative safety reviews such as LOPA (Layer of Protection Analysis) and Bow-Tie (a graphical alternative to HAZOP) and a new chapter to address revalidation of studies/reports after 5 years. As well as providing invaluable personal insights from his career in the process industries, Dennis Nolan has also added a wealth of new real-world examples, bringing the form-filling to life. And for the first time, the forms and checklists are available for purchasers of the book to download - making this a complete safety review toolkit. Helps you to achieve compliance and avoid disasters: Dennis Nolan combines his extensive personal experience with relevant industry examples to provide the checklists and best-practice guidance needed to negotiate the labyrinth of Hazard Analysis and Safety Review procedures. Keeps your knowledge up-to-date: Coverage of the latest forms of Hazard Analysis and Safety Review, including LOPA and Bowtie Saves time... and money: Demonstrates how each of the typically required reviews is related, so that information and conclusions used on one may be transferred or adapted for another. Also helps you avoid the fines associated with non-compliance, e.g. fines of up to $25k per day imposed by the Department of Homeland Security in the USA for non-compliance with the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standard (CFATS).
