Risk management and asset performance analysis software
Safeti is analysis software for maximising asset performance and minimising risk. It allows you to manage your process activities safely and reliably whilst improving performance.
Hazard analysis software for energy and process industries
Phast is the world’s most comprehensive hazard analysis software package for all stages of design and operation. By understanding the consequences of different scenarios, you can take steps to reduce the effects of a hazardous event, mitigate the consequences, and plan for emergencies.
You can use Phast to assess situations which present potential hazards to life, property and the environment, and to quantify their severity. Phast examines the progress of a potential incident from the initial release to far-field dispersion, including modelling of pool spreading and evaporation, and flammable and toxic effects.
Phast is used in the oil and gas, energy, petrochemicals, chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries, as well as by regulators, consultants and the insurance industry globally.
Visual display and advanced reporting of consequence and risk are utilised in applications such as plant layout and design, process safety management, land use planning, legislative compliance, emergency response planning and general risk management. Good safety is good business and Phast helps improve both.
Performance forecasting software for plant operations
Maros and Taro are cutting-edge software for performance forecasting assessment for upstream, downstream and logistics operations. Using advanced reliability, availability, maintainability (RAM) simulation, Maros and Taro allow you to analyse and improve the production efficiency of your assets using key indicators.
Safeti performance forecasting tools are used at various project stages, from the conceptual design, identifying the best technology for a particular project, through proving detailed analysis of bottlenecks and constraint for optimising mature assets during the operational and decommissioning stages.
We provide a range of performance forecasting software products building on traditional RAM analysis methodologies, but with additional advanced features and capabilities with focus on the oil and gas industry. This enables you to predict and understand your plant performance and identify areas for improvement.
By combining your understanding of the system and performance forecasting simulations, you will be able to derive the true quantifiable benefits likely to result from adopting a particular strategy.
Comprehensive, operational risk and QHSE management solution
Synergi Life is a comprehensive, operational risk management solution implemented in close to 200 organisations globally in energy, industry, transport and health sectors. Synergi Life is used in 20 languages, in 150 countries by more than 500,000 users.
Synergi Life incorporates years’ worth of invaluable experience in HSEQ from leading companies within oil and gas, transportation, the processing industry and the public health sector. The application provides companies with the ability to share and rollup data across complex, multi-layered organisations, allowing them to recognise trends and ensure compliance with requirements. Synergi Life reduces costs by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the operational risk and incident management processes.
Synergi Life is a module-based solution designed to meet the demands from both reactive indicators and proactive initiatives. This has led us to develop optional modules for incident management, quality management, environmental management, risk management, insurance, claims and fines management, performance management, audit, inspection and assessment management.
These modules can be used as standalone solutions, or in combination to fit the exact client needs. It is the combinations of several modules that contribute to a total risk and QHSE management solution.
Pipeline integrity management software
Take control from well to terminal with Synergi Pipeline, the software that enables safe and efficient pipeline integrity management, operations, documents risk, and gives a clear overview of the integrity of pipelines, components and tanks.
Synergi Pipeline manages integrity and risk of the entire infrastructure of pipelines and facilities (using RBI), and is equally fit for transport lines, in-field installations, transmission lines and flowlines. Synergi Pipeline is used by customers operating complete oil infrastructures from well to downstream terminal and gas transportation networks, onshore as well as offshore.
Integrity decision makers can manage, track and act based on real-time situation map, risk matrix and risk ranking. Users can easily track hotspots, predict corrosion and plan inspections, maintenance and renewal activities. Synergi Pipeline offers continuous risk documentation with full traceability of integrity decisions.
Risk and reliability analysis
By understanding the risks and production pattern of your process plant or offshore unit, you can make effective decisions to design and operate your asset in the best manner for improved safety and performance.
Consequence and quantitative risk analysis
Phast and Safeti provide a complete, integrated software platform for quantified risk analysis of process plants. It comprises of Phast’s validated consequence modelling of discharge, dispersion and flammable, explosive and toxic effects. Safeti combines these with population, ignition, transportation routes, weather probabilities and an array of vulnerability capabilities. Safeti software package allows the analyst to measure and then manage risks arising from process plant hazards at all stages of a plant’s lifecycle from conceptual design through to decommissioning.
Advanced reliability, availability and maintainability
Reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) analysis is a crucial tool in designing and analysing the performance of your operations. Maros and Taro are software tools specifically designed to meet the needs of the oil and gas industry. This allows you to model even the most complex process system and to see clearly what is required to improve its performance.
As a general purpose systems design tool it is currently used in a wide range of applications including chemicals, manufacturing, power generation and distribution.
