Oil & Gas and Process Industry Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA)


The purpose of this module is to enable students to understand and apply QRA techniques with particular relevance to the oil and gas and process industries.  Students will be given an opportunity to conduct QRA for example oil and gas and process facilities.  The module also covers risk criteria, application of the ALARP principle, sensitivity analysis and cost benefit analysis.


At the end of the course you will be able to

  1. Design QRA models incorporating appropriate input data and assumptions
  2. Use QRA to analyse the risk to personnel
  3. Compare QRA results with criteria and use to devise and evaluate potential risk reduction measures
