Abstract : This study evaluates potential cargo fuel spills, spill fires and equipment available to mitigate fuel spill hazards at an off-shore bulk fuel supply installation. Potential cargo spill sources, probabilities and volumes are calculated. Consequences of these spills assuming spill ignition are quantified. Existing fire protection equipment aboard tankers is evaluated to determine the ability of this equipment to control identified spill fire conditions. Where existing fire fighting systems are found to be inadequate additional fire mitigation systems are recommended. Logistic support, manpower and training needed to maintain the recommended spill control systems are detailed. (Author)
