DESIGN FOR SAFETY, SECURITY & RELIABILITY

Kenexis provides Consulting Engineering Services for safety for critical process in oil & gas, and chemical industries. Our efforts assist organizations make their operations safe, secure, and reliable. Our engineering services focus on three main areas, Safety Instrumented System (SIS), Fire and Gas Detector Mapping, and Industrial Control System Cybersecurity.

Our consulting engineering services are defined by ISA84/ IEC61511 and include expert PHA facilitators to develop your Hazard and Operability Study (HAZOP) to determine process scenarios that may require additional protection, SIL selection using Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) to establish requirements for each SIF for every process scenario of concern identified in the HAZOP.  We also develop complete Safety Requirement Specifications (SRS) for the configuration of SIS, test planning, and continuing performance assessments and auditing including reevaluation of the SRS after change.

Our Fire and Gas Mapping (FGS) utilizes performance-based design concepts defined in ISA84 TR84.00.07.  We provide both geographical coverage and scenario-based coverage against your performance targets.

Our Industrial Control System Cybersecurity services are based on ISA / IEC-62443 or your local standards. Services include design and migration planning, vulnerability assessments, and policy development.

Kenexis engineering software is designed by process safety engineers and built internally to improve engineering whether you are calculating λ or IPF SIL level, performing fault-tree analysis, or trying to meet the performance target with your gas detector array.

While our services and software are designed to assist our clients with compliance and to benchmark their performance against industry best practices, Kenexis also follows strict quality control standards as an ISO 9001 Certified organization.
