Condensate tank explosion

Published on 19/01/23 136 Views 1 likes

On the roof of a water/natural gas condensate tank at a gas production site, welding work was done. A valve handle was moved out of the way, which opened the valve. LPG flowed through the valve to the hot spot and exploded. Two workers died.

Ask yourself and your crew:

  • How can something like this happen here (e.g. on our site)?
  • What safety measures (i.e. procedures, controls/barriers) do we have in place to mitigate the risk?
  • How do we know the risk controls/barriers are working?
  • What improvements or changes should we make to the procedures, controls/barriers or the way we work?
