Dynamic Risk Analysis in the Chemical and Petroleum Industry focuses on bridging the gap between research and industry by responding to the following questions:

What are the most relevant developments of risk analysis?
How can these studies help industry in the prevention of major accidents?

Paltrinieri and Khan provide support for professionals who plan to improve risk analysis by introducing innovative techniques and exploiting the potential of data share and process technologies. This concrete reference within an ever-growing variety of innovations will be most helpful to process safety managers, HSE managers, safety engineers and safety engineering students.

This book is divided into four parts. The Introduction provides an overview of the state-of-the-art risk analysis methods and the most up-to-date popular definitions of accident scenarios. The second section on Dynamic Risk Analysis shows the dynamic evolution of risk analysis and covers Hazard Identification, Frequency Analysis, Consequence Analysis and Establishing the Risk Picture. The third section on Interaction with Parallel Disciplines illustrates the interaction between risk analysis and other disciplines from parallel fields, such as the nuclear, the economic and the financial sectors. The final section on Dynamic Risk Management addresses risk management, which may dynamically learn from itself and improve in a spiral process leading to a resilient system.

About Faisal Khan

Nicola Paltrinieri is an associate professor at the department of Production and Quality Engineering of Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). He received his Ph.D. in Safety Engineering from the University of Bologna (Italy). He has worked in internationally renowned research teams at the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) in the United Kingdom, the Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada and the Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research (SINTEF) in Norway. He was awarded with the Onsager fellowship for established reputation for high-quality research. He is involved in a number of projects on advanced techniques of risk analysis in collaboration with world leading oil and gas companies. He is interested in the study and improvement of risk management in the broadest sense, from economic to organizational implications.. Dr. Faisal Khan is Professor and Vale Research Chair of Safety and Risk Management. He has established a new research center- Centre for risk integrity and Safety and Engineering (C-RISE), which has over research 40 research members. His areas of research interest include: offshore safety and risk engineering, inherent safety, risk management, and risk-based integrity assessment and management. He is actively involved with multinational oil and gas industries on the issue of safety and asset integrity. In 2006, he has spent eight months as risk and integrity expert with Lloyd's Register (UK) a risk management organization. He also served as Safety and Risk Advisor to Government of Newfoundland, Canada. He continue to serve subject matter expert to many organizations that include Llyod's Register EMEA, SBM Modco, Intecsea, Technip, and Qatargas. In 2008-10, he visited Qatar University and Qatargas LNG Company as Process Safety and Risk Management Research Chair. In 2012-14 he served as Visiting Professor of Offshore and Marine Engineering at Australian Maritime College (AMC), University of Tasmania, Australia. Where he lead development of offshore safety and risk engineering group and an initiative of global engagement with many international institutions. He is recipient of President Outstanding Research Award of 2012-13, CSChE National Award on Process Safety Management of 2014, President Outstanding Research Supervision Award of 2013-14, and recently Society of Petroleum Engineer award for his contribution in Health, Safety and Risk Engineering. He has authored over 300 research articles in peer reviewed journals and conferences on safety, risk and reliability engineering. He has authored five books on the subject area. He is Editor to Journal of Process Safety and Environmental Protection, and Journal of Process Engineering. He regularly offers training program/workshop on safety and risk engineering in different places including St John's, Chennai, Dubai, Beijing, Aberdeen, Doha and Kuala Lumpur.
