About the Project

The client is developing an integrated 400MW Floating Power Plant (FPP) and Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Floating Regasification and Storage Unit (FRSU) in Barangay Simlong, Batangas City, Philippines. 

ESC conducted the Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) for the LNG terminal to ensure risks are minimised and meet the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR)/Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) requirements for the Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) for the project.

Our Approach

QRA is a valuable tool for determining the risks associated with the operations of the FRD and FPP project, particularly the use, handling, transport and storage of dangerous substances. This study aims to calculate the associated individual fatality risks and societal risks that may arise due to project operations. Results of the study will be valuable in providing DENR and EMB with relevant information to decide on the acceptability of project-related environmental risks. It will likewise provide guidance for management on the formulation of necessary measures to mitigate, control or reduce identified environmental risks to acceptable levels or to a level that is as low as practicable (ALARP).

The scope of work for this study comprises the following:

  • Hazard Identification – Qualitative review of possible accidents that may occur (based on previous accident records or professional judgement where necessary) for the hazardous substances stored onsite;
  • Definition of the failure cases to be studied in this project with each failure case assigned a unique failure case identification code;
  • Determination of the consequences or hazard distances of all failure cases identified; and
  • Proposition of mitigation measures or recommendations, where required, to reduce or manage the hazards.

Outcome

The client was able to demonstrate to the DENR/EMB that the potential hazards and risks associated with the installation of the LNG terminal are within acceptable levels. With the support of our local expert, we bring our local knowledge and apply industry best practices to the project, the client is now one step closer to realizing its vision of developing the Philippines as an LNG hub in Southeast Asia.

Client Testimonials

ESC thinks out of the box. They can come up with conventional solutions. But they are better in providing a solution fit for the company - one that feeds your organization. 

ESC is focused on helping us solve our problem. Even if it means sometimes going out of the scope of what was originally agreed upon. So as a client, I can focus all my efforts on solving the problem.

William Wong

Head of Technical, Chemical Specialties

We had no experience at first in dealing with Safety Cases and dealing with authority. When we have an issue, we ask ESC. Just one look at it, ESC already knows what to do. They  advise us accordingly and professionally and tell us what to do what to follow and to know. Our partnership with them produced good results.
