EURIM

European Group for Risk Management and Technical Safety for Critical Infrastructures

The European Group for Risk Management and Technical Safety for Critical Infrastructures (EURIM) evaluates, compares and validates under the auspice of CSE-Engineering concepts and measures to ensure the technical safety of transmission, distribution and service pipelines to transport oil, gas or hazardous substances. As a consequence, equipment necessary for the transport e.g. compressor stations may also be considered.

The Project

Topic:
Risk management and technical safety for critical infrastructure

Leadership:
CSE-Engineering GmbH

Participants:
Companies from oil, gas, chemical or petrochemical industry

Language:
German (English on demand)

Meeting place:
CSE in Pfinztal

Period:
min. 3-4 years

The participants mostly belong to the sectors of the oil and gas and the chemical respectively petrochemical Industry. CSE-Engineering is responsible for the organization of the meetings and shall elaborate CSE safety reports as draft for the discussion within the EURIM group. The reports will be circled prior to the meetings and modified with respect to the discussion outcome. The aim is to share practical experiences and increase the quality of safety-related measures on safety and security for existing and future pipelines, and to train junior safety experts based on EURIM results.

What does EURIM do?

Current topics are:

  • Comparison and evaluation of national and international standards
  • Evaluation of safety concepts for critical infrastructure
  • Comparison of different approaches to solve case studies

Selected topics for industry-typical case studies:

  • Aging of existing pipelines
  • Pipeline Security to prevent third party incidents
  • Safety-related evaluation of potential pipeline routes
  • Risk based evaluation of safety measures in dense population areas with critical infrastructure
  • Decrease of public tolerance towards failures
  • Risk analysis of equipment for the gas and oil infrastructure

How does EURIM work?

The EURIM group defines safety-related case studies in regular meetings. CSE-Engineering is responsible for the coordination of the dates, the organisation of meetings and the preparation of sample solutions for the case studies. The sample solutions are distributed to the participants prior to a meeting. The EURIM group discusses the case studies and sample solutions and share the industrial experiences regarding the case studies.

CSE-Engineering compares approaches as well as the accuracy and application limits of methods and models with statistical or experimental data from the literature. These results are published in an EURIM Model Validation Report and discussed in an EURIM meeting if necessary.

CSE-Engineering documents the individual case studies in EURIM Sizing Case Reports and gives recommendations for the approach in EURIM Sizing Recommendations.

What makes EURIM unique?

CSE-Engineering aim to bring experts from different sectors with different safety approaches together to protect pipelines and enhance safety. Sharing the industrial expertises and experiences may open insites to solve specific industrial safety tasks and deepen the safety mindset of the participants.

Within the EURIM group the solutions of industry typical case studies are documented uniformly and comprehensibly. This enables quality management in the field of safety technology and the education of junior safety experts is simplified. Participants of the EURIM group reach a very high level of knowledge and meet their due diligence for the development of safety solutions in the industry. The extent and depth of the solution of the case studies as well as the presentation of the application limits of the models of the literature are unique.

Antitrust statements

The European Group for Risk Management and Technical Safety for Critical Infrastructures intents to elaborate a high qualtiy experience exchange to further increase the safety of technical plants comprehensibly. The exchange of experience within the group concerns published and therefore publicly available methods and models whose practical application usually is only possible with a multitude of assumptions.

The participants of the EURISG Group comply with the antitrust law. In particular, no anti-competitive agreements are being made concerning the following topics:

  • prices, division of territory or the like between competing companies
  • information about prices, sales, business transactions etc.

An Antitrust Guidline was made available to all participants.
