LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Process Systems Enterprise (PSE), today announced that Paul Frey will head the company’s newly established Centre of Expertise (CoE) for Pressure Relief, Flare and Blowdown.
PSE's rigorous, high-fidelity modelling approach has brought new safety best practice to the oil & gas industry in recent years. The company is already the recognised industry-leading provider of high accuracy analysis for blowdown, pressure relief and flare system design, with a worldwide customer base of owner/operators and engineering contractors.
The newly-established Centre of Expertise will comprise an international team of some 20 engineers providing pressure relief, flare and blowdown expertise for front-end engineering design (FEED), detailed design and asset integrity projects to owners/operators and contractors in the oil & gas, petrochemicals and refining industries. High-fidelity dynamic analysis using PSE’s extensively-validated gFLARE® modelling environment will continue to be at the core of design and verification studies that help to ensure safe operation, minimise project cost and manage project risk.
Paul has extensive experience in the oil & gas industry, most recently at AMEC Foster Wheeler where he was the Principal Consultant and technical authority in pressure relief and blowdown for Upstream, Midstream and Downstream safety. His role included activities such as technical support and auditing of projects, flare and relief verification audits and responsibility for development of relief sizing methodologies and company standards. He was also a contributor to the API 520 and 521 Pressure Relieving Standards Committee meetings.
James Marriott, VP of PSE’s Oil & Gas business, says “we are very pleased to welcome Paul to this key position. We believe that the new CoE shows PSE’s commitment to bringing innovative technology and integrating advanced analysis into traditional areas of practice in a way that makes it possible to enhance safety and reduce capital cost at the same time.”
