Qatar Petroleum organizes fire and safety research forum

Qatar Petroleum’s Industrial Cities Directorate recently organized a meeting of the LASTFIRE Group, which was hosted at Ras Laffan Emergency and Safety College.

The venue provided a fitting setting for the delegates of the international oil & gas industry who discussed the results of recent studies and research on fire safety.

The LASTFIRE Group comprises fire and emergency response personnel from major international oil and gas companies and was initially set up to look at developments in large storage-tank fire risks. The group has achieved much in terms of theoretical and practical research work over the years and continues its role as the recognized international oil, gas and petrochemical industry forum developing best practices for all aspects of storage tank fire hazard management.

“QP is actively involved with other oil & gas majors in fire and safety research and development programs,” said Abdullatif Ibrahim Al-Mohannadi, Manager of Operations at QP’s Industrial Cities Directorate.

“It is a shared top priority. The State of Qatar is committed to a sustainable and consistent exploitation of natural resources, which requires among other things the dissemination of knowledge, training, experience. It also demands the setting up, constant update and strict implementation of top safety standards,” said Al-Mohannadi.

“Qatar Petroleum’s participation in the LASTFIRE project has endowed it with a wealth of knowledge in cutting edge technologies, which are today put to good use in various forms to enhance the safety and security of our operations,” he added.

The three-day forum provided its members with the latest studies, statistics, research results and future research plans. Another meeting, which also took place at the RLESC, included live demonstrations using the facility’s modern set of props.
