Topic 59: Discuss the Strategy of Fire Safety and Prevention in Offshore Installations

A fire must have three things to ignite and maintain combustion: Fuel, Heat and Oxygen. The basic strategy of fire prevention is to control or isolate sources of fuel and heat in order to prevent combustion. If all three are not present in sufficient quantities a fire will not ignite or a fire will not be able to sustain combustion.

Topic 48 (sub-branch): Safety issues during transportation and distribution of oil and gas.

Pipeline is a safe and reliable mode of transportation and distribution of oil and gas. It is also an economical and dependable mode of transportation particularly to the sensitive and strategic areas where vessels cannot access easily. It provides a long term infrastructural option and solves difficulties in handling large volume of products by rail from one loading point to another and therefore reduces minimum transit loss.
