Abstract


Offshore industries are well recognized all over the world for its complex conditions, geometry, robustness, and rigidness. A small mistake can immediately escalate to catastrophe, of all the accidents reported till date fire is the most frequently reported one. Major accidents like the Deepwater Horizon, piper alpha has taught entire crude industry a lesson on how important it is to prevent fire occurrence. therefore, it is necessary to study fire behaviour and its Hazards, identification etc. many significance models are available for estimation of fire occurrences out of these only a few can be validated

This paper mainly concentrates on the identification of fire its prevention, protection and what are risk acceptances that can be done. Finally, this paper concludes that a risk-based framework and human training should be designed by companies which involve both assessing risk and its management.
