Standard Guide for In-Situ Burning of Spilled Oil: Fire-Resistant Boom

Abstract

This guide covers a set of criteria to evaluate the performance, material characteristics, and essential features of fire-resistant oil spill containment boom. Two types of fire-resistant oil containment Boom are covered: those that are intrinsically fire-resistant through the use of fire-resistant materials, and those that provide fire-resistance through the use of coolants. The boom shall be tested for operability, oil containment, and fire resistance.

Scope

1.1 This guide covers a set of criteria to evaluate the performance, material characteristics, and essential features of fire-resistant oil spill containment boom.

1.2 This guide covers two types of fire-resistant oil containment boom: those that are intrinsically fire-resistant through the use of fire-resistant materials, and those that provide fire-resistance through the use of coolants. This guide may not be fully applicable to other types of fire-resistant boom.

1.3 This guide is one of four related to in-situ burning of oil spills. Guide F1788 addresses environmental and operational considerations, Guide F1990 addresses ignition devices, and Guide F2230 addresses burning in ice conditions.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
