Risk assessment of petroleum transportation pipeline in some Turkish oil fields
Ogutcu, Gokcen; Akın, Serhat (2004-12-01)
This study concentrates on risk factors in oil field pipeline systems and covers identification of failure rate and reasons of failure comparison of the failure data, which are collected from oilfield pipeline systems located in South East Turkey. There are many methods and techniques to reduce or eliminate risk factors in pipeline systems. In this study, quantitative risk assessment method, which depends on statistical calculations, was applied. Monte Carlo Simulation was used to assess the risk in the sys...
Risk assessment of petroleum transportation pipeline in some Turkish oil fields
Öğütçü, Gökçen; Akın, Serhat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, quantitative risk assessment study of several oil field transportation lines that belong to a private oil production company located in S. East Turkey has been conducted. In order to achieve this goal, first primary risk drivers were identified. Then relative ranking of all pipeline segments were conducted. Quantitative risk assessment was based on Monte Carlo simulations and a relative scoring index approach. In these simulations frequency of occurrence of pipeline failures for different oi...
Risk assessment approach on underground coal mine safety analysis
Sarı, Mehmet; Karpuz, Celal; Selçuk, A. Sevtap; Department of Mining Engineering (2002)
Although modern underground mining methods are introduced, every year mine accidents in Turkey cause a vast amount of economical losses as well as the lives. Risks due to accidents have to be identified, evaluated and controlled or eliminated by proper techniques. In this study, a risk assessment approach will be taken into consideration based on the evaluation of the risk profiles of two underground coal mines in Turkey. Historical data of last seven years in GLI- Tuncbilek mine and ELI-Eynez mine constitu...
Risk assessment by fault tree analysis of methane explosions in Turkish hard coal enterprises underground mines
Mevsim, Rıdvan; Demirel, Nuray; Department of Mining Engineering (2016)
Mining is one of the most hazardous industries in the world. Among all mining professions, underground coal mining has the highest occupational accident and disease rates. Methane explosion appears as the major accident type which results in severe loss of life and property in underground coal mining. Including underground coal mines, preparing a practicable risk assessment is the primary step to sustain a safe workplace environment. The main objective of this study is to specify the root causes of methane ...
Risk assessment for a denim manufacturing plant in Turkey
Arda (Mungan), Meral; Yetiş, Ülkü; Department of Environmental Engineering (2008)
A risk assessment study is conducted in a denim manufacturing plant in Turkey. The study is carried out within the framework of a project on adopting the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive of the European Union. The scope of the assessment is fire or explosion risk with regards to hazardous chemicals present in the plant. The receptor of the study is defined as “people”; which include the employees in the plant, employees of nearby plants and people in residential around the mill. ...
