Oil and Gas Security
Security Consortium International has extensive experience in oil and gas security and hazard prevention across the world. We have worked for over 40% of the world’s largest oil and gas corporations and provided extensive security, fire and HAZOP management services to the oil and gas industry.
Oil and gas installations always cover huge areas of a country and are often spread out both onshore and offshore and are linked by vulnerable networks of pipelines and support facilities spread throughout a country.
Our security audits and surveys will look at security risk and prevention measures from the operating wellheads themselves through initial pipe work to the gas and oil gathering centres and separating plants and then on to the main battery limits at the main processing, cracking and refining facilities.
We will also look at the distribution pipelines and tank farm storage areas to provide the finished product to clients and marketing areas and also to sea and air export terminals as well as fuel facilities to airports, ports and critical power and facilities installations.
Oil and Gas Security
Oil and gas security is unique in that the facilities that must be considered run through almost any part of a country and are spread out across a vast area from the oil fields and refining base areas, the headquarters, the client finished product users, seaports, airports and power generating facilities.
There is, therefore, a need for a complete holistic view of the security threats across a very broad area. It is also vitally important to identify single choke points of high risk where, for example, pipelines may converge and one single device can cause massive damage across the whole infrastructure network.
To ensure consistency across this process we use computerised risk analysis called Risk View which identifies single points of failure. It also evaluates counter measures that can be used to reduce the level of threat. The programme will show the level of remaining resultant risk after reduction by the ‘counter measures’.
