Abstract

Studies carried out by the Mexican Petroleum Institute have demonstrated that the event of pressurized vessel rupture in offshore platforms, implies catastrophic consequences for the safety of the personnel and it shows the reliability of the production process. The reliability of the combustible gas system of the Akal-J Marine Complex was analyzed, through the application of the technique of a fault tree for the rupture of a cyclonic separator located in the compression platform, continuing the simplified calculation methodology. The mitigation actions proposed for the current system permit the reduc
