Process safety

We consider that process safety is at the heart of accident prevention, and results from applying good design and engineering principles, as well as robust operating and maintenance practices.
Galp guarantees a proactive action, based on analysis and prevention of activity risks. We monitor and analyze the process safety events that occur at our downstream and upstream facilities, and complete this cycle by conducting audits of the Company’s operations to verify the efficiency of the risk mitigation measures implemented.
In 2018, our process safety strategy has shown a positive trend, mainly in Tier 1, and we are continuing to work towards a lower rate of process safety events per million hours worked. 

Process Safety Event Rate (PSER)

 

* Process Safety Indicators (PSI) adopting API 754-Process Safety Performance Indicators for the Refining and Petrochemical Industries

Note:

Tier 1 is a primary containment loss of major consequence: unplanned release of any material, including non-toxic and non-flammable materials, from a process that results in a very serious consequence.

Tier 2 is a loss of primary containment of minor consequences: unplanned release of any material, including non-toxic and non-flammable materials, resulting in a consequence. 

Targets for 2019

  • ZERO personal, material and environmental accidents with a significant impact.

  • PSER Tier 1: 0,09

  • PSER Tier 2: 0,30  

At Galp, we aim to set more ambitious goals that position us at the level of best performers, as well as to continue to improve our performance with regard to process safety, based on the benchmarks of the sector (CONCAWE and IOGP).
