Kenexis Consulting Kenexis, a process safety consulting engineering firm that provides technical safety services, performance-based fire and gas mapping, and risk analysis for industries that manage risks related to chemicals or stored energy. Green means safe too, right? Storage of large amounts of energy, regardless of whether it is in the form of hydrocarbons, lithium-ion batteries, compressed hydrogen, or anhydrous ammonia, can result in the unintentional release of that energy in ways that can harm people and damage the environment.

Mixing hydrogen into the natural gas stream will effect area classification, gas detector coverage and technology, burner curves and much more. Processing, transporting and storing of large amounts of energy in the form of hydrocarbons, can result in the unintentional release of that energy in ways that can harm people and damage the environment.

Our expertise, and pioneering research and development in technical safety engineering, has driven our trusted resource reputation throughout the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries.
Highlights

read more › Kenexis, an independent consulting engineering firm that provides technical safety services for process industries, and other industries that manage risks related to chemicals or stored energy. Kenexis is helping change the way that safety and security are incorporated into industrial business practices by providing safety engineering services, best-in-class software tools, associated training, and comprehensive technical support. Kenexis was established in 2004 by Edward Marszal and Kevin Mitchell and is a privately held company.

Our Fire and Gas Mapping (FGM) team performs similar tasks for the hazards associated with the loss-of-containment that could result in a fire, flammable gas, or toxic gas hazard following the guidelines laid out in ISA-TR84.00.07 Guidance on the Evaluation of Fire, Combustible Gas, and Toxic Gas System Effectiveness. Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS)- including SIL Verification, Safety Requirements Specifications (SRS), Test Plan Development and Optimization, Validation, Verification, Functional Safety Assessment, and Site Acceptance Testing/Validation - primarily using our Vertigo SIS Lifecycle Management Software, and Open PHA HAZOP/LOPA Documentation Software.

read more › SIL Verification includes determination of probability of failure on demand, spurious trip rates, and other performance metrics. SIL Verification considers the type of equipment employed, advanced voting arrangements, diagnostics, and testing frequency. Once SIL Selection (performance target) is completed (usually using LOPA), achievement of the SIL Selection is verified using SIL Verification. SIL Verification can be calculated easily with our database in Vertigo SIS Safety Lifecycle software.

Process Hazards Analysis (PHA) - including a full range of facilitated/workshop studies like HAZOP, LOPA, HAZID, and a full-range of auditing. PHA studies are easily documented and audited in Open PHA HAZOP/LOPA Documentation Software, and Open Audit Documentation Software. Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) studies provide recommendations based on causes and consequences that require further attention.

read more › Our engineers use this rigorous methodology to evaluate the possible consequence and likelihood associated with engineering or technical scenarios. Consequence is typically expressed as the number of fatalities or failures and likelihood of occurrence is typically expressed in frequency as the number of times a year. Event tree analysis and fault tree analysis are typical. Sometimes as subset of a QRA is required so we perform a Focused Quantitative Risk Analysis (fQRA) analysis and calculations to assist in the determination of the tolerability of risk associated with scenarios and the generation of recommendations to assist in the achievement of tolerable risk levels.

read more › Fire and gas mapping, or fire and gas performance-based coverage design and analysis, solves the problem of where to put flammable gas, toxic gas, and fire detectors to identify a loss of containment hazard as soon as possible. We perform both geographical-based fire and scenario-based gas mapping based on the situation. Guidance on the Evaluation of Fire, Combustible Gas, and Toxic Gas System Effectiveness to determine the probability for loss of containment and the leak characteristics associated with major equipment items so we can access the risk appropriately and design a solution to provide the appropriate performance-based level of risk reduction for your situation.

read more › Effigy software is designed to facilitate fire and gas detector performance-based design as defined in ISA TR84.00.07. Effigy verifies an array of fire and/or gas detectors against the scenarios (consequences), validating that the locations and characteristics chosen will provide the coverage desired. Fire and Gas Systems (FGS) are important tools for safeguarding process plants and production facilities that handle flammable and toxic materials. All such facilities have inherent risk, which in some cases require the installation of FGS to mitigate hazards.

read more › Support at Kenexis goes way beyond the normal technical support you receive for software. Kenexis develops the software internally with risk analyst and chemical safety engineers. Consequently, in addition to normal technical support, you can be contract us to assist with your design, perform difficult calculations, and even just do the work for you entirely.

It is a growing library of online training for all things process safety including prerecorded process safety webinars and software training which is included in the purchase of a software license. Additionally, Premium content that can be accessed with an annual membership. Premium content includes a variety of SIS Engineering and Process Safety topics from highly qualified experts, published authors and process safety professionals with exams and quizzes as part of the training.
