A bit of an understatement…

October 28, 2011

Seen in a safety and risk assessment document I’ve been editing:

The Explosion Study assessed several mitigation options to reduce the blast effects on the Administration Buildings, including relocation, water deluge, and installing a blast wall. The Administration Building was relocated as a result of this study.

I think that last sentence is a clear case of understatement!

By the way, this risk assessment was done a few years ago, long before any soil was turned, so the Admin Building was only moved on paper. This is why they do extensive ‘front end engineering and design’ before building a major processing plant and its associated infrastructure.
