Jet fire safety in the oil and gas industry

Jet fires are a particular group of hydrocarbon fueled fires expelled from an orifice, e.g. leak in pipe or vessel, under pressures of 2 bar or greater. They are the most severe fire scenario, considering the effect of erosion of steel and also the significantly higher rate of burning due to turbulent fuel/ air mixing. Typical radiation value after 5 minutes is 320 kW/m2.

This article outlines the rules and requirements for jet fire protective solutions within the industry and the specific jet fire solutions for high risk structures.
