Fire and explosion, crude tank, Fault tree analysis, tank risk level, MATLAB

Abstract

Fire and explosion in a crude oil storage tank is one of the devastating threats for oil storage area or terminal. This kind of hazard results in human fatality, environmental damage and causes a great economic loss for hydrocarbon industry. In this paper the scenario of fire and explosion in a tank has been simulated with the help of various methodologies like Fault tree analysis (FTA) and Structural importance degree (SID). With the help of these methodologies the most critical basic events (BEs) which may lead to accidents has been pointed out. The risk score of the specific crude oil tank has been calculated through MATLAB software. The results indicated that the final score of fire and explosion risk is in caution area. Sensitivity and importance analysis has been performed to identify the most crucial BEs which will provide insights to reduce or the risk.
