    This research carries out a comprehensive study on the gas explosion risk analysis approaches of different oil and gas facilities and aims at developing more accurate, detailed, efficient, or reliable risk analysis methods for vapour cloud explosions under different conditions. Various risk analysis methods such as a multi-level method, a grid-based method and a Bayesian network are implemented to estimate explosion risks of offshore and onshore process facilities with different sizes and properties. Furthermore, a confidence level-based approach is proposed to enable a more reliable risk evaluation by reducing the impact of subjective judgement-related uncertainties.
