Values of PTS

As of 3/27/2009


PTS Incorporating New Minimum Requirements For Critical Construction Activities, e.g. On line Leak Sealing On-line

Photo Incident of On-Line On Line Leak Sealing

Background g Issue Recommendation

Fatal accident caused by failure of on-line leak sealing at one of the PETRONAS y g plants There is no standard guideline for safe execution of the activity in all PETRONAS OPUs and Plants Developed new PTS 20.213 Minimum Requirement for Implementation of Critical Non-Routine Activities. In addition to on-line leak sealing, the scope of PTS also covered hot tapping & line stopping, hydro jetting & hydro cutting, heavy lifting, safety valve testing and hot bolting Standard guideline to establish safe work practices and to ensure that the associated risk is managed to As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP)
