API Recommended Practice 2001, 10th Edition

The 10th edition of API’s Fire Protection in Refineries, builds on industry experience gained over seven decades and includes: important revisions on hazard analysis; new ways to improve the design of refineries to help prevent fires; and, new information on managing the potential environmental impact of firefighting foams and marine firefighting. API convened experts across the natural gas and oil industry, and collaborated with important stakeholders, including the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the United States Coast Guard on important updates made to this safety standard. 

API’s Fire Protection in Refineries, First Edition, appeared in 1933 as the beginning of fire safety guidance series for the “downstream” segment.
