Hydrocarbon Processing June 2012

Lessons learned from a Russian methanol plant

Modern plants are heat-integrated and increasingly automated. This fact diminishes the operator’s ability to intervene in a quick and effective manner should an incident occur. Under normal working conditions, the operator can apply basic knowledge successfully. At the first sign of a fault condition, the operator acknowledges the event in a clearly defined manner. As the abnormal situation continues, interdependent events propagate and a multitude of alarms go off. This causes the human response to deteriorate, forcing decisions to be made based on experience and best judgment.

 

The article published on the June 2012 issue of Hydrocarbon Processing magazine, was co-authored by process control engineers from OAO Metafrax and process modeling engineers from the OTS group of Hyperion Systems Engineering.
