Avanceon Limited Chief Executive Officer Bakhtiar H Wain has said that Elengy Terminal Pakistan Limited has maintained the highest level of safety on the terminal set up to handle liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports.
“We have taken safety measures for LNG imports and a foreign consultant has conducted the audit,” Wain told The Express Tribune here on Wednesday. He said all steps were taken to ensure the safety of the LNG plant.
He said they were providing technology and services, while keeping safety standards in view, to the oil and gas industry and fertiliser plants in Pakistan in order to avoid the development of any unwanted situation.
“We are providing services to OGDC, MOL and OMV (exploration companies) in a safe manner to cope with any abnormal circumstances,” he said, adding they were following specialised safety standards in technology, design and services to stave off hazardous incidents at the plants.
Speaking at a seminar on process safety, he said the process safety was critical for any industry involved in manufacturing or processing.
“Safety considerations in processes prevent system breakdowns that can be dramatic to both the environment and citizens,” he said.
The representatives of vital industries attended the seminar which included oil and gas, power and fertiliser sectors. Among guest speakers were specialists from Rockwell Automation, Engro’s Elengy Terminal and Fauji Fertilizers.
Wain explained that functional safety standards and their implementation were riddled with difficulties in understanding the terminologies and definitions. “This is a field where real expertise is needed.”
Elengy Terminal Lead Electrical and Controls Syed Ammar Shah highlighted the benefits of safety solutions implemented by Avanceon for the LNG plant of the company. “Avanceon team definitely helped Engro in improving the safety of the plant,” he added.
