Most organizations have accident investigation procedures. However, these procedures are often based on a blame culture & do not inspire the investigator to nd & correct the defects in the management system (root causes) that allowed the hazards to exist & the accident to occur.
Several industries have adopted excellent accident investigation & analysis techniques. Competence in the application of modern accident/incident investigation tools will assist organizations to learn & to prevent the recurrence of accidents & to evaluate the extent & location of management defects (root-causes), which contributed to the accident event. A good analytical accident investigation is invaluable to achieve continuous improvement in an organization’s HSE performance.
This workshop is intended for all staff roles in engineering, technical and supporting departments with responsibility for ensuring safety in the workplace and for conducting, leading, reviewing and approving incident investigations.
President, Zick Technologies (Since 10/93).
Petroleum engineering consulting and software development, specializing in the area of reservoir fluid phase behavior modeling. References available on request. Key achievements:
-Developed numerous equation-of-state and black-oil fluid characterizations for various major oil companies and as a sub-contractor for Pera A/S.
-Recommended phase behavior experimentation and modeling guidelines for several major oil companies.
-Wrote PhazeComp, a new, state-of-the-art program from Zick Technologies for equation-of-state phase behavior modeling, reservoir fluid characterization, and the robust, efficient calculation of minimum miscibility conditions.
-Wrote Streamz, unique Petrostreamz A/S software for translating, manipulating, and managing vast quantities of fluid stream information.
-Designed and helped write Pipe-It, unique Petrostreamz A/S software for managing and manipulating petroleum resources, processes, and projects.
-Taught numerous industry courses on phase behavior, equations of state, reservoir fluid characterization, and miscible gas injection processes.
-Designed and helped implement a new set of equation-of-state routines for the in-house reservoir simulator of a major oil company.
-Advised the architects of a major commercial reservoir simulator on ways to significantly improve their equation-of-state routines.
Director of Research, Reservoir Simulation Research Corporation (6/91–10/93).
Responsible for the research and development of more efficient, accurate, and reliable techniques for modeling reservoir fluid phase behavior within MORE® (a fully-compositional, equation-of-state reservoir simulator). Also responsible for improving three-dimensional visualization of reservoir simulator output, and for occasional consulting work. Key achievements:
-Designed and implemented new equation-of-state solution algorithms for MORE®, improving both efficiency and robustness while using less memory.
-Developed a powerful and flexible interface between MORE® and TECPLOT™ (three-dimensional surface contouring software from AMTEC Engineering).
Senior Principal Research Engineer, ARCO Oil and Gas Company (9/83–5/91).
Developed expertise in reservoir fluid phase behavior, phase behavior modeling, compositional reservoir simulation, and relative permeability modeling. Designed and analyzed PVT experiments. Created equation-of-state reservoir fluid characterizations. Developed ARCO’s phase behavior modeling software and relative permeability modeling software. Helped develop several of ARCO’s compositional and limited compositional reservoir simulators. Key achievements:
-Discovered the true, condensing/vaporizing mechanism of oil displacement by enriched hydrocarbon gases.
-Represented ARCO on the Prudhoe Bay co-owners’ Enhanced Oil Recovery Task Force for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Designed and analyzed most of the PVT and slim-tube experiments for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Created the equation-of-state reservoir fluid characterization adopted by the operating companies for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Developed the miscibility pressure correlations used by the facility operators for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Developed EOSPHASE, a then state-of-the-art program for equation-of-state phase behavior modeling, reservoir fluid characterization, and the robust, efficient calculation of minimum miscibility conditions.
-Developed SLIMTUBE, a special-purpose, equation-of-state simulator for slim-tube displacements.
-Developed new, compositionally-consistent, three-phase relative permeability models for ARCO’s compositional simulators and wrote data-fitting software for those models.
-Developed the phase behavior and relative permeability routines for a new, limited compositional reservoir simulator and assisted on other aspects of it.
-Continually added improvements to various in-house reservoir simulators.
-Regularly taught in-house courses on the phase behavior of miscible gas displacement processes.
