This report deals with the description, reliability and rating of oil transfer control systems in Deepwater ports. A typical oil transfer control system is hierarchically defined along with equipment description and purpose, reliability, spill risk, effects of failure and alternative procedures. A numerical rating system is presented which enables the design reviewer to compare a proposed control system with a benchmark system. Equipment Staging Diagram, Fault Trees and a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis are presented for the defined control system to aid in its analysis. (Author)
