GCE Group’s Director for Science co-authored UNECE’s Safety Guidelines and Good Industry Practices For Oil Terminals

07.09.2015

A unique document – Safety Guidelines and Good Industry Practices for Oil Terminals will be published in October 2015 under editorship of the UNECE Convention on Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents.

March 2012: an international work group unifying top experts was formed under the UNECE Convention to develop safety guidelines for oil terminals. GCE’s Director for Science, Alexey Isakov became one of the aforesaid members and co-authors of the Guideline. UNECE also issued a gratitude letter to thank GCE Group President, Alexander Moskalenko for his contribution into the process.

The Guideline cumulates safe operational practices with regard to the lifecycle of oil terminals. The mentioned practices are emergency prevention and response measures that will help to reduce harmful effects for health and the environment in case of an industrial accident.

The Guideline was developed considering data provided by national agencies, operators of oil terminals, financial institutions and non-governmental companies. Safety practices included into the Guideline are based on experience and lessons learnt from large-scale accidents. Consequently, it promotes generally accepted and experience-based measures that comply with international standards.

Forum participant’s opinion

«This was a very impressive group of professional industrial safety experts. It is useful to get people together who do similar work, so that they can gain knowledge from the experience of others and understand regulations and requirements for improvement of safety. There were very interesting and informative presentations and it was clear that people here were interacting and learning from one another.  However, I received interesting questions about my presentation and I hope that my presentation was of some use to the delegates. I enjoyed the interactions with the participants and I enjoyed the overall event. The organization of the meeting was exceptional. GCE management did a great job in organizing and implementing the conference».
