High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS)

High integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS) are utilized where traditional methods of pressure relief with a mechanical device are not practical.

At ORS, we have built up a significant experience related to design, operation and maintenance of HIPPS thanks to a continuous inflow of relevant projects and close co-operation with operators, suppliers and engineering companies.

From our offices in Oslo and Malmö, we provide specialized consultancy services for a wide range of projects from subsea HPHT field developments to export pipeline- and topside protections.

  • Process Hazard Analysis/HAZOP

  • Safety Requirement Specification (SRS)
  • Offshore Training and Certification
  • Periodic Reliability Verifications
