Sabic Terminal Services-KSA

Under the Risk Management Program, Offsite Consequence Analysis was conducted for Sabic Terminal Services Company, a Sabic affiliate in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. SabTank is a facility which stores and handles large quantities of very hazardous chemicals therefore it was essential and strategically important to prepare and implement programs to prevent the accidental release of those chemicals and to mitigate the consequences of any releases that do occur. The analysis helped in achieving the client’s objectives. Manual calculations were carried out in the entire analysis based on client’s requirements. The analysis was conducted based on the EPA rule which defines three Program levels.

Following steps were followed to carry out an offsite consequence analysis for SabTank Jubail. Before carrying out one or more worst-case and/or alternative release analyses, several pieces of information were obtained about the regulated/substances, the area surrounding SabTank site, and typical meteorological conditions:

  •  Determination of whether each regulated substance is toxic or flammable, as indicated in the EPA rule;
  •  Determination of the quantity of each substance held in the largest single tank/vessel or pipe;
  •  Collection of information about any passive or active mitigation measures that are in place for each substance;
  •  Whether the substance is stored as a gas, as a liquid, as a gas liquefied by refrigeration, or as a gas liquefied under pressure. For alternative scenarios involving a vapor cloud fire, similar information was collected for flammable substances;
  •  For toxic liquids, determination of the highest daily maximum temperature of the liquid, based on data for the previous three years, or process temperature, whichever higher;
  •  For toxic substances, determination whether the substance behaves as a dense or neutrally buoyant gas or vapor (see data sheet for all substances). For alternative scenarios involving a vapor cloud fire, similar information was needed for flammable substances;

Based on the information and data gathered, the Offsite Consequence Analysis was carried out including the following:

  • Worst-case release scenarios
  • Alternative release scenarios
  • Prevention Programs
  • Emergency Response Program
