Risk Assessment of Gasification Product Improvement Facility

North America

October 22, 2020

K&M was commissioned by US DOE to perform a risk assessment and determine insurance requirements for a proposed Gasification Product Improvement Facility (GPIF). This GPIF consisted of development and commercialization of a simplified Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) technology. Project plans called for implementation in three phases. K&M assessed the potential impact of all risks associated with the GPIF facility and its interconnection with the Ft. Martin #2 unit. Recommendations to mitigate risk were developed to address potential failure of the GPIF (especially the gasifier) to handle the LBG which may result in fire or explosion; potential rupture of the hot coal gas pipe connecting the GPIF and the boiler, and burner fires from deposition of tars.
