Passive Fire Protection is today an essential part of all Oil&Gas installations. The constant presence of highly flammable fluids and explosive gasses, in confided spaces and locations where people have limited escape routes, poses a significant risk in the Industry. Every measure is taken to reduce the risk to a minimum, but unfortunately as have been seen in some disastrous examples, accidents do occur. This is where Passive Fire Protection (PFP) plays an important role. If an oil or gas spill accident has occurred and ignited, it’s essential that the integrity of load bearing structures and pipes carrying hydrocarbons or fire fighting fluids, are protected as long as possible.
