Welcome to Prague
I am very pleased to welcome you to Prague, Czech Republic for the 9th PCIC Europe conference. The Petroleum & Chemical Industry Committee Europe conference (PCIC Europe) is the premier forum for the exchange of experience in the practical application of electricity and instrumentation in the petroleum, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Experts from users, engineering companies, manufacturers, regulators, certifying bodies and international standardization organizations will present papers with the intention of informing the attendees about their experience and recent progress. The subjects selected for the conference cover safety issues, new standards and regulations, engineering, equipment, operation and maintenance aspects, and feedback from end-users. During the conference a Hospitality Area will be provided in the conference hotel to allow fruitful discussions among all attendees, exchange experiences, and create efficient and friendly networking. This Hospitality Area has had a great success in previous PCIC Europe conferences and I invite you to make full use of it. The first 2 PCIC Europe conferences were held in 2004 and 2005 in Basle Switzerland, then Amsterdam The Netherlands in 2006, Paris France in 2007, Weimar Germany in 2008, Barcelona Spain in 2009, Oslo Norway in 2010 and Rome Italy in 2011. About 200 attendees from 20 countries attended the previous PCIC Europe conferences. Also it has been noted that more and more end users are present, this showing the importance of the discussions. Every year the conference will be held in a different European country in order to foster exchanges among people having different practices and perspectives for the mutual benefit of everyone. I am looking forward to seeing you in Prague Patrick Leroux Chair PCIC Europe


The 2012 technical program

The continued success of the PCIC Europe conference demonstrates that it truly does provide the international forum needed by those involved in the Oil & Gas Exploration, Production, Refining, Petrochemical, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries. The presentation of high quality technical papers and the discussions during and after the conference make it very interesting for all attendees. The 2008 PCIC Europe introduced a tutorial session which was very well attended, and we will have another session at the 2012 conference. In Prague we will hold 2 panel discussions due to the high interest in topics that have been presented in the past. They will be 1 hour plenary sessions held during the last 2 hours on Thursday afternoon. Details are given in the next few pages of the program. The panel discussions will provide an ideal forum for the exchange of ideas. The PCIC Europe conference is a rare opportunity for end-users, engineering companies, manufacturers and regulatory bodies to be able to meet and discuss matters of vital importance to the industry. The PCIC Europe Committee has renewed the technical co-sponsorship with the Industrial Applications Society of IEEE. In addition to the possibility offered to authors to have selected papers published in the Industrial Applications Transactions and Magazine, all papers presented in the 2012 PCIC Europe conference will be digitally archived on IEEE Xplore thus being available to readers throughout the world via the IEEE Xplore website. Papers from the 2011 Rome PCIC Europe conference are available through IEEE Xplore. The main topics of the PCIC Europe conference are: 1. Energy efficiency & sustainable development 2. Safety in the Workplace 3. Experiences from Users with Regulations and Standards 4. Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) Engineering Practices 5. Equipment, Systems and Components 6. Operation, Maintenance, Repair, Asset Management and Qualification of Personnel Attending the PCIC Europe conference is one of the best ways of getting the information needed to be able to adapt quickly in our ever-changing industry. Presenting a paper at a PCIC Europe conference is a way to control the evolution of our industry. I am looking forward to seeing you in Prague. Terence Hazel Secretary PCIC Europe


PCIC Europe Mission To provide an international forum for the exchange of electrical applications technology relating to the petroleum and chemical industry, to sponsor appropriate standards activity for that industry, and to provide opportunity for professional development.

PCIC Europe Strategies 1.

PCIC Europe will proactively promote participation by a broad base of PCIC Europe representatives, with an emphasis on both younger and retired engineers. 3. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in technical activities including authorship of papers and standards development. 4. The quality of PCIC Europe paper offerings is essential for the PCIC Europe mission to succeed and will be given highest priority. Preference will be given to application oriented papers. 5. The technical content of the PCIC Europe Annual Conference will be continuously evaluated and updated to reflect the evolving needs of the industry. 6. Participation of users, manufacturers, consultants and contractors will be encouraged in the activities of PCIC Europe to strengthen the conference technical base. 7. PCIC Europe will offer tutorials directed towards enhancing the technical, communication, and interpersonal skills of petroleum and chemical industry engineers.
