The ultimate goal of our consequence and risk analysis services is to provide the level of insight needed for your decision makers to make informed risk management decisions.

Our engineers have performed risk analysis studies for a wide range of facilities around the world, including refineries, terminals, gas plants, LNG and LPG operations, pipeline systems, offshore platforms, floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facilities, oil and gas wells, and chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical plants.

Our expertise in hazard and risk management services has resulted in our participation on many standards committees and being selected as the lead author under contract with the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) for several guideline books:

Guidelines for Vapor Cloud Explosion, Pressure Vessel Burst, BLEVE, and Flash Fire Hazards-2nd Edition cover
Guidelines for Evaluating Process Plant Buildings for External Explosions, Fires, and Toxic Releases-2nd Edition cover
Guidelines for Determining the Probability of Ignition of a Released Flammable Mass cover
Guidelines for Facility Siting and Layout cover

Our Testing and R&D programs, including several BakerRisk-sponsored Joint Industry Programs (JIPs), provide us with the knowledge and experience to properly characterize what could happen in an accidental release. Our professionals guide your subject matter experts in the development of potential scenarios to be evaluated in risk analysis. We offer advanced analysis capabilities to further refine critical assumptions and introduce additional detail to reduce conservatism of the results.

Consequence Analysis

A clear understanding of the potential impacts of your hazards is key to taking the first steps toward protecting people.

Facility Siting Study

Our professionals have helped create industry-accepted protocols for conducting Facility Siting Studies (FSS).

Quantitative Risk Assessment

Our QRA studies go beyond simple risk quantification to provide results that drive practical and effective risk reduction solutions.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

When a screening level analysis is not sufficient, BakerRisk’s consultants use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools to provide high fidelity solutions.

Transportation Risk Assessment

Transporting hazardous materials via road, rail, pipelines, or maritime vessels can pose unique risk management challenges.

Business Interruption Risk

Our detailed review of your BI risk drivers provide you with critical input needed when considering capital projects or other plant improvements.

Changes in Facility Siting Standards: API 752, 753, & 756

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
