Crude oil tank fire protection

RE: Crude Oil Tank Arrangement and Protection (AST) 5 May 08 23:25. I'm out of the office on business and I don't have NFPA 30 in front of me. However, NFPA 30 does allow reductions in shell-to-shell tank spacing when tanks are insulated, protected by water spray systems, and other methods. If the tank is having fuel oil and the tanks are located as per NFPA 30 then I do not think these tank need any cooling. Fire water system with hydrants and fixed monitors can be considered for protection of other exposed surfaces.

The unprotected steel supports on a 600-barrel rich oil storage tank collapsed. When the tank fell, piping from the tank to a 25 m high reabsorber tower pulled the tower over. It fell across the ends of a 600-barrel distillate tank and the rich The fire water system should be laid out to provide adequate fire protection to all parts of the storage area and the transfer facilities. Bunding and draining of the area surrounding the tanks should be such that a spillage from any tank can be controlled to minimise subsequent damage to the tank and its contents.

Storage Tank Fire Fighting. • No longer shallow spill fire. • Been burning for several hours before foam attack. • Fuel volatile and very hot (~400deg C). • Needs a 

Storing flammable liquids, particularly crude oil, with high vapor pressure poses difficult challenges for fire protection and fire safety. While existing codes for fire foam may be effective under the best conditions, they are largely ineffective in extremely cold conditions in which water is either scarce or frozen. for providing tank fire protection. This presentation will focus on Floating Roof Tanks as they are the most common and recommended tank type for Crude Storage. Options: • No Protection (rely solely on passive –not generally recommended) • Type II Systems •Semi-Fixed (requires support of Foam Apparatus) •Fixed –Manual or Automatic Fire Protection Systems for Storage Tanks In the early years of the oil industry, fire in a storage tank was a common occurrence. Virtually all products were stored in cone roof tanks built of riveted steel plates and the roof was often constructed with wood and tar coated paper. Tank fires were common especially after a lightning storm. Now, we all know that an empty tank can me more dangerous than a full tank. A full tank usually does not have enough of a vapor space to allow a flammable atmosphere. The empty tank is filled with the vapors from its previous cargo. In this case, the previous cargo was crude oil whose vapors are extremely flammable. We do have two 3000 m3 light fuel oil tanks on the tank yard that to be protected. They are inside of the dike wall an they are far from other flammable objects. We have big problems to determinate what is the right way to protect them against the fire. We should execute the fire protection according NFPA-codes but the local fire protect Refineries and plants have specialized fire safety needs. API strongly supports the principles of fire prevention as elements for personnel and property protection in the petroleum industry. Prevention programs provide the most effective means of ensuring personnel safety.

Oil well fires are oil or gas wells that have caught on fire and burn.
