Abstract

The oil industry in India is over 100 years old. Variety of practices has been in vogue because of collaboration / association with different foreign companies and governments. Standardization in design philosophies & operating and maintenance practices at a national level was hardly in existence. This coupled with feedback from some serious accidents that occurred in the recent past in India and abroad, emphasized the need for the industry to review the existing state of art in designing, operating and maintaining oil and gas installations. With this in view, Oil Industry Safety Directorate (OISD) was established in 1986 staffed from within the industry for formulating and implementing a series of self-regulatory measures aimed at removing obsolescence, standardizing and upgrading the existing standards to ensure safer operations. The present document on Fire Protection Facilities for Petroleum Refineries & Oil/Gas processing plants is basically the modernizing phenomena implemented in Reliance refinery of the country. Attempts have been made to incorporate the latest technological changes, experience gained in its implementation during last 4-5 years and relevant changes in the light of various national and international codes and practices. It is hoped that the provision of this document, if implemented objectively will go a long way in improving the safety in the oil & gas industry.
