A new independent industry group is being formed specifically for passive fire protection in the oil and gas industry, it will be known as PFPNet.

Why the Need?

Passive fire protection (PFP) has been used extensively within the hydrocarbon industry for many decades to mitigate the effects of fire, saving lives and assets. But despite this track record it is often the case that the users of PFP do not fully understand key aspects of this important subject, and the hydrocarbon industries have not always taken on board the lessons learned from the past.

Whilst conferences and seminars can inform on what is happening in industry, and manufacturers can provide information on the latest system developments, there is no body which is dedicated to raising standards in the use of PFP by both setting a future technical agenda, and educating based on what has been learned from the past.

PFPNet will be focused on serving the needs of the users of hydrocarbon fireproofing materials and systems, through a focus on education, training, capturing and retaining existing knowledge, researching key topics, clarifying points of confusion and disseminating this to the membership, and to the industry at large with the aim of improving quality.
