Oil and gas fire training course

Overview

This joint run course between SP Fire Research as (former SINTEF NBL - Norwegian Fire Research Laboratory), ComputIT and Lloyd's Register will provide you with frontline knowledge on oil and gas fire experience and calculation tools.

The main theme of the current course is open and enclosed fires as well as challenges in layout and design. The course is tailored towards engineers in oil companies, engineering companies, consultancy companies and others using or commissioning calculation tools for fire hazard. But will also benefit safety personnel dealing with fire hazard, qualitatively or quantitatively, producers and suppliers of equipment that needs fire documentation.

Course structure:

Day one – Basic theory

Will give you the basic knowledge to follow days two and three of the course. You will be introduced to fire theory and analysis, including combustion theory, smoke production, response to fire and calculation of heat loads and structural response.

Day two and three – Advanced

"Open and enclosed fires; challenges in layout and design" is the theme of day two and three. You will be introduced to advanced approaches to calculate structural response and heat loads from fires. Concepts of quantitative risk analysis, fire modelling with special focus on the CFD tool "Kameleon FireEx KFX", and fire testing will be discussed.

Attendees can choose to participate across the three days or simply attend days 2 and 3 – dependent on their skill level. Lectures will be given by representatives from SP Fire Research, ComputIT, Lloyd's Register and invited speakers. The course also includes a demonstration of a large-scale fire test.
