The security and economic stability of many nations and multinational oil companies are highly dependent on the safe and uninterrupted operation of their oil, gas and chemical facilities. One of the most critical impacts that can occur to these operations are fires and explosions from accidental or political incidents. This publication is intended as a general engineering handbook and reference guideline for those personnel involved with fire and explosion protection aspects of critical hydrocarbon facilities. Design guidelines and specifications of major, small and independent oil companies as well as information from engineering firms and published industry references have been reviewed to assist in its preparation. Some of the latest published practices and research into fire and explosions have also been mentioned.

Fire Safety is the science of fire and the means of protection against it. Being multidisciplinary in nature, the subject is closely related to chemical engineering, building services, electrical, electronics, structural and civil engineering and industrial engineering. There is a dearth of books on this subject, and therefore, the author aims to provide readers with a lucidly written, comprehensive text explaining the fundamentals of the fire process and means of protection. Comprising eleven chapters, this well-illustrated book with data tables begins with the introduction of the subject and then proceeds to explain fire process, its chemistry, heat and temperature in fire, hydraulics, active and passive fire protection systems, risk management and insurance, and finally investigations and reconstructions of fire incidents. The book appends useful information on fire safety including cases to explain the causes of fire, Indian Standards on fire safety, explosion and properties of some flammable materials. Fire safety engineering students and professionals will find this book of immense use to them.

Written from the perspective of industrial users, this is the only book that describes how to install an effective firewater pumping system in a pragmatic and budget-conscious way rather than with purely the regulatory framework in mind. Based on the wide-ranging industrial experience of the author, this book is also the only one that deals with the particular risks and requirements of off-shore facilities. This book takes the reader beyond the prescriptive requirements of the fire code (NFPA, UL) and considers how to make the best choice of design for the budget available as well as how to ensure the other components of the pumping system and supporting services are optimized. The only alternative to guides written by regulatory enforcement bodies, this book is uniquely practical and objective – demonstrating how and why the standards need to be met Covers a wide range of industries, including those with exceptional requirements such as off-shore petroleum facilities and chemical plants Written by someone who has been responsible for the safety of large numbers of workers and billions of dollars worth of equipment, for those in similarly responsible positions
