3D Fire & Gas Mapping studies aim to assess a detector layout against the pre-specified performance targets for detecting a reference flame or gas cloud. Performance targets for specific areas of a facility are generally agreed in advance of the study and aligned with the overall Fire & Gas Safety Philosophy and applicable standards or good practice guides



Fire & Gas hazard is major threat to people, environment and asset. The early detection of a developing fire or gas leak and an early warning to operational and fire-fighting personnel form an important aspect in the basic concept of fire protection. The fire and gas detection system provides early warning to plant personnel of potentially dangerous situations in terms of flammable or toxic atmospheres or fires of in all plant areas. This enables the initiation of remedial actions to avoid or minimize escalation of events and risk reduction measures to be taken. The early warning signal will enable personnel and/or system to take remedial actions to reduce escalation effects of the dangerous situation and, certainly at least as important; personnel are made aware of a dangerous situation. In most instances, confirmed detection of fire and gas the system will automatically alert personnel via the plant General Alarm system. This will result in all personnel stopping work and evacuating the area, thus reducing potential loss of life. Apart from the life & system safety objective, the objectives of the insurance and hydrocarbon handling companies regarding Fire & Gas leak is to minimize financial loss.
