This paper will describe ExxonMobil Development Company's management system that allows for recognition, evaluation, elimination and/or mitigation of process hazards in upstream facility design. ExxonMobil has a rigorously applied system of design processes and tools through the life-cycle of major projects including concept selection, preliminary design, detailed design, construction and ultimately the operation of the facility. Application of these tools and processes has enabled safe and efficient operations and project execution. Discipline and commitment to "Nobody Gets Hurt" in the design phase of a project leads to facilities that can support safe operations through decades of operations.
