SCE Performance Standard !
EPC365 provides all services related to Safety Critical Element (SCE) Performance Standards.
Performance Standard for Safety Critical Elements (SCE) will be prepared and issued to Company for review and approval. These are the key technical requirements to be met by SCEs in order to ensure they are effectively operable on demand, they perform as expected and they have some capacity to survive incidents. Performance standards describe the goal of an SCE in its safety critical role and the performance requirements that SCEs must meet during design and operational life. Performance standards (PS) include all the controls that are needed to verify SCE integrity together with the minimum performance that should be maintained for each control point.
Performance standards (PS) include all the controls that are needed to verify SCE integrity together with the minimum performance that should be maintained for each control point. Assurance activities (maintenance, inspection and testing) will be put in place to continuously demonstrate that SCEs remain fit for purpose during their whole service life in the framework of MIE.
Performance Standards should cover three main areas of control:
Functionality – What to control to ensure the equipment fulfills its functions
Availability, reliability – At what frequency should it be controlled and maintained to meet p erformance/integrity minimum requirements
Survivability – Does the equipment need to keep its functions during an incident and how to maintain this capacity
Identification of Safety Critical Elements (SCEs) will be derived from the major scenarios based on comprehensive assessments. SCE list will be utilized Bow-Tie analysis. The developed SCE list will be established by selecting individual SCEs involved in critical scenarios classified as “disastrous” or “catastrophic”. PMC OilPro will produce and maintain the SCE Register in EPC365.
SCE Integrity monitoring
EPC365 will hold a Safety Critical Element (SCE) integrity review workshop to assign the tasks for the safety Critical Element (SCE) integrity in EPC365. The meeting will be conducted by the Engineering Manager with support of the Lead Safety engineer, and the attendees will be Company representatives, EPC365’s relevant discipline representatives and project engineers.
