On December 6, 2018, Russian Shipbuilders’ Scientific and Technical Society (STS) named after Academician A.N. Krylov in St. Petersburg organized a meeting of the STS section "Ecology and safety in shipbuilding". Evgeny Veselov, the Pozhneftehim CEO, took part in the task meeting of the public organization.

Evgeny Veselov’s report concerned the fire safety of offshore platforms and ships. According to statistics, fires are the greatest danger to offshore oil infrastructure. In the event of platform destruction, they cause environmental disasters, and their consequences can be eliminated with great difficulty.

In the B. A. Nikitin and R. M. Tagiyev’s work “Ensuring the safety of offshore fields facilities”, there is a summary of the types of accidents on offshore platforms.

Cargo drop0 2 21
Fire17 39 43
Oil loss1 0 4

The effective foam fire extinguishing and water-cooling systems at offshore drilling rigs (ODR) and offshore platforms (mobile units) are extremely important for the smooth operation of offshore oil and gas infrastructure.

The Pozhneftehim founder told about the classic and modern fire extinguishing systems at offshore platforms, the inertia of fire extinguishing systems that affect the fire elimination in the very early stages of ignition, and about the environmentally friendly S/AR foam concentrate, which solution can be drained into a water body. The latter is especially relevant, since it significantly reduces the cost of treatment facilities and saves the usable area on the platform.

Of particular interest to engineers and designers of fire extinguishing systems may be the Matre DY16 nozzle system built into the helicopter deck. The DIFFS system is an internationally recognized solution and has regulatory grounds for use at Russian facilities. Detailed information about this and other Pozhneftehim products and systems is available upon request (fill out the feedback form on the website, or call us back).

Representatives of design bureaus, the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RMRS), Gazpromneft, Giprospetsgaz, Sovkomflot customers, as well as specialists from equipment manufacturing companies, regularly participate in meetings of the Shipbuilders' STS. At the last meeting, environmental issues were also discussed: the impact of shipping and operation of offshore facilities on the marine environment, ensuring fire safety during offshore operations and cargo operations on ships and offshore facilities.
