About the Project

As a leading multinational oil and gas company, preventing process safety incidents is the highest priority for our client. To obtain a license, each facility is required to submit a Safety Case in accordance with the OHS regulations.

Our Approach

As part of a 2 ½ year Vendor’s Due Diligence program, ESC reviewed Safety Case for its 100 hectares refinery in Geelong, Australia. Furthermore, ESC conducted an EHS review of Shell downstream assets including 1 refinery and more than 80 depots.

The objectives of the Safety Case are to demonstrate that the client has:

  • Established a robust safety management system;
  • Identified all potential major incidents relating to operation of the facility;
  • Identified all hazards and threats that could result in the identified major incidents at the facility;
  • Conducted a comprehensive and systematic safety case assessment of identified potential major incidents;
  • Established control measures to eliminate or reduce risk to health and safety as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP);
  • Implemented an emergency plan to control and minimise any major incident with potential on-site/off-site effects; and
  • Established a review mechanism to ensure the safety case and control measures are continually assessed and updated as necessary.

Outcome

Our Safety Case review helped the client ensure that they remain relevant and reflect the current state of operations, and that risk reduction measures are in line with industry best practices.

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.

I do appreciate the times when ESC was there to help with an open channel and service-oriented communication. Ease of communication is what separates ESC from other consultants.
