World-leading tools for hazard, risk and performance analysis
The process industries too often experience losses with accidents, equipment failure and operational downtime. This results in higher costs and also in potential harm to people, property and the environment. For over 30 years DNV has been developing the world-leading tools for hazard, risk and performance analysis in the process industries, helping companies minimize losses and manage safety and asset performance.
Simulation of loss of containment accidents allows engineers to see and understand undesirable outcomes so that they can avoid, prevent and as a last resort protect against them. By understanding the hazards and the risks they present, equipment, plants and sites can be designed and operated safely.
Failure of equipment and maintenance have an influence on performance and therefore on the commercial success of process industry activities such as oil and gas production and refining. Reliability, availability, maintainability (RAM) analysis helps the industry predict the performance of processes and business operations. Complex enterprises including oil and gas fields, processing and logistics can be efficiently simulated, comparing design and operation options in order to optimize performance and analyse cost-benefit over the entire lifecycle.
