Abstract: The likelihood of leaks from process equipment is a key input to any Quantitative Risk Assessment. This study is aimed at developing a methodology supporting the tailorization of leak frequency values. Specific modification factors for the facilities of the Oil & Gas (O&G) upstream sector are used for this purpose. The method (TEC2O—frequency modification methodology based on TEChnical Operational and Organizational factors) is based on an aggregated set of indicators, whose contribution to the expected leak f…
