T43 photo.jpgTOTeM 43, SAFE DESIGN AND OPERATION OF COMBUSTION EQUIPMENT IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY: CHALLENGES AND BEST PRACTICES, took place in Sheffield UK on June 2nd 3rd 2016. Over 75 people from nine countries participated, with representatives from plant-owner/operators, equipment vendors, service providers and academia gathered for 17 presentations and four round table discussions. The event was supported by eight sponsoring organisations:

who have all had profiles featured in recent issue of the Monday Night Mail.

It is clear that the oil and gas sector faces plenty of challenges to operating their combustion equipment safely by applying many different safety standards and at the same time meeting tightening environmental limits on NOX and CO emissions. Interactions from the floor were lively and informative both during the Keynote Addresses and the Round Tables proper.

The TOTeM 43 presentations and Rapporteur’s Summary will be distributed directly to participants and to all IFRF Members via the IFRF.NET ‘Conference Notes’ pages; their availability will be flagged up in a future Monday Night Mail.

It is worth noting that at its most recent meeting, the IFRF’s Joint Committee confirmed the adoption of Safety as a new objective of the IFRF, joining the longstanding objectives of clean and efficient combustion.
