exida will be presenting at the AIChE’s 2020 Spring Meeting & 16th GCPS to be held August 17-21, 2020. The AIChE Spring Meeting is this year’s key technical conference for practicing chemical engineers. A wide range of subjects relevant to the current needs of industry is covered. Plus, the Global Congress on Process Safety covers the critical needs of process safety practitioners more broadly and deeply than any other conference. The event is entirely virtual this year. exida Engineers Denise Chhastain-Knight and Alejandro Esparza are among the presenters.


222b Personal Perspectives of a Practitioner on Credentialing and Licensing

The path we take as we develop in our careers is a unique and personal one. We begin the journey wide eyed armed with our basic education and the goal of landing our first professional job. As we move through the career our experience and skills grow, and we begin to select our path more thoughtfully. The choices to pursue certificates, credentials and/or licensure are forks in the road that help one deliberately shape a career path. This presentation will discuss differences between certificates, credentials, and licensure, and describe how each can impact a career path.

55c Application of Safety Instrumented Systems in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Processes

At first glance, one might assume that Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) processing is simply a compression process. Deeper observation reveals unique process challenges of flammable and explosible materials, high-pressure rotating equipment, and cryogenic conditions. LNG facilities are typically developed by connecting highly specialized process units designed and constructed by technology providers. Establishing a consistent and effective Safety Instrumented System (SIS) philosophy across the entire facility requires careful thought and negotiations to align all technology providers to the same page. This paper will highlight some of the project management concerns when working with packaged equipment through a study of some specific Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) examples.
