Abstract

In this paper, fire, toxicity and explosion consequences from source and dispersion of sour gas leakage/rupture in a process line or equipment are evaluated. Thermodynamics and transport phenomena models were employed by using the specialized software PHAST Professional version 5.1, licensed by DNV Technica. The input parameters were predominant weather conditions, physical and chemical properties of materials, scenario equipment layout, working conditions and surface characteristics. It could be noted that the worst consequences involve high pressure leakage whose leak diameter was bigger than % in; 1. Introduction Offsho
