About the PSM Technical Sub-Committee

The PSM technical sub-committee works directly under the leadership of the Egyptian Process Safety Management Steering Committee (EPSMSC). The technical sub-committee spearheads the implementation of the MoU signed between the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources (MoP) and Methanex Egypt to develop the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical companies’ PSM policies, standards and procedures (PSP). This will enable sector companies to design, build and operate safe facilities based on global industry best practices.

The goal of the technical sub-committee is to create the technical foundation to ensure the embedding of an enhanced PSM culture for MoP and its affiliated companies in accordance with industry best practices, international guidelines and standards.

The technical sub-committee has been formulated through a series of interviews from sector and capacity building nominations.
