anti corrosion paint flash explosion: review of the explosion of the oil tank of the China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline

January 11, 2007

[Abstract] at 19:20 on October 28, 2006, Anhui Provincial anti corrosion Engineering Corporation carried out anti-corrosion operations on the top of the 100000 cubic meter crude oil tank (in the two small cabins of the floating ship on the top of the double disk floating roof crude oil tank) of the Xinjiang Dushanzi project under construction, The crude oil storage tank suddenly exploded, causing 12 deaths and 12 injuries, and many people suffered from temporary hearing impairment in the explosion. It has been preliminarily determined that the cause of the incident is the flash explosion of organic volatiles in the anti-corrosion paint

this is the No.2 50000 cubic meter oil storage tank at the first station of the domestic section of the China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline that has been completed

the record of the explosion site of Dushanzi oil tank at the end station of the China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline

Dushanzi special recording measurement accuracy of the International Herald Herald: better than ± 1% of the indicated value, xiongcongru and Liu Bing reported

on the evening of October 28, with a loud noise, a crude oil tank under construction in Dushanzi, Xinjiang suddenly exploded, killing 12 people and injuring 12 people

because Dushanzi is the place where PetroChina's largest refining and chemical integration project - "ten million tons of oil refining and one million tons of ethylene" is implemented, and it is also the terminal station of China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline, China's first transnational oil pipeline, the explosion accident has attracted high attention at home and abroad

explosion at dusk

on October 31, a 29 year old injured person was receiving treatment in the staff hospital of Dushanzi District, Xinjiang. His name is Cheng Bing. He is a survivor of the October 28 explosion

Cheng Bing told the International Herald herald in detail about the scene on the day of the explosion: for the employees of Anhui Provincial anti corrosion Engineering Corporation who were working in Dushanzi, the 28th was an ordinary working day. At 16 p.m., Cheng Bing and his colleagues sprayed anticorrosive paint on the top of the huge crude oil storage tank that was about to be completed. The oil tank has a diameter of 86 meters, a height of about 23 meters, and a design capacity of 100000 cubic meters

At about 19:00 p.m., the day's work was about to end. Cheng Bing and some workers moved aside to have a rest, while other workers were still painting the inner wall of the storage tank

Cheng Bing told the International Herald: "I was resting with several workmates. Suddenly, a fire flashed in front of me, and I heard a loud noise. Then I was knocked down by a powerful heat wave. There were fires all around, which made people breathless. When I woke up, I was already in the hospital."

a witness was working on the construction site about 400 meters away from the explosion site, He said, "I suddenly heard an explosion of 'Dong' when I was about to leave work. Later, I saw thick smoke like mushroom clouds rising from the big jar next to me. I knew someone was working there, so I ran to look at it and saw some blasted arms and skin. The scene was too tragic... Five minutes later, the firefighters arrived. When shopping, we should not only pay attention to the brand, and the police and security guards began to close the scene."

At 19:23, the calm Dushanzi district staff hospital received a call for help, saying that an explosion occurred at the construction site of the "ten million tons of oil refining and one million tons of ethylene" project. The hospital immediately launched an emergency rescue plan. Seven minutes later, the medical staff arrived at the scene to carry out emergency rescue together with nearly 100 people, including safety supervision, public security and fire control. After preliminary inspection, the doctor sent the two workers on the scene to the hospital first. At 22:40, the medical staff sent 12 injured workers back to the hospital from the scene and immediately began treatment. At the same time, the incomplete remains of 12 dead workers were transported

late that night, police cars and various vehicles were parked in the courtyard of the construction headquarters of the "ten million tons of oil refining and one million tons of ethylene" project. In the building, the relevant leaders of Dushanzi petrochemical, Karamay municipal government and Dushanzi district government who arrived shortly after the accident are meeting to study the accident investigation and aftermath work. The security guard refused all and other personnel's requests to enter the headquarters building to understand the situation, and only saw boxes of mineral water and Nang (a kind of flour cake common in Xinjiang) sent into the building. Obviously, the leaders inside have held many meetings in a row


Xinjiang: the families of the victims of the anti-corrosion paint flash explosion were compensated 200000 yuan

Xinjiang: 12 deaths and 12 injuries from the anti-corrosion paint flash explosion

the cause of the explosion the Ministry of science and technology, ICT and future planning of South Korea announced the preliminary identification of this scientific research achievement

it is understood that among the 12 workers injured in the accident, 6 were slightly injured and were discharged on the same day. The other six injured are still hospitalized, all of them fractures and soft tissue injuries, and many of them caused temporary hearing impairment in the explosion

at the "October 28" explosion accident press conference held the next day, the relevant parties determined that the accident caused a total of 12 deaths and 12 injuries, all of which were employees of Anhui anti corrosion engineering company

Sheng Shaokun, deputy director of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Administration of work safety, said that the cause of the accident was preliminarily determined to be the flash explosion caused by the volatilization of organic matter in the anti-corrosion paint sprayed by workers, the internal surface of the oil tank was damaged, and the tank was not damaged

flash explosion refers to the explosion of flammable gas after it has gathered to a certain concentration in an airless space and immediately burns and expands when encountering an open fire or electric spark

On the afternoon of September 29, relevant parties further determined that the possibility of secondary explosion and serious pollution accident was unlikely, and the nearby China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline was in normal operation

China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline is the first transnational oil pipeline in China, with a total length of 962.2 kilometers. It starts from Atasu in Kazakhstan in the West and ends at Alashankou in China in the East. The 246 kilometer Alashankou Dushanzi crude oil pipeline in Xinjiang connected with it is the domestic continuation of China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline. On July 29 this year, crude oil from Kazakhstan was injected into the storage tank of Dushanzi Refinery through this pipeline

the oil storage tank that exploded this time was built for the gradual increase of the oil transportation volume of the China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline. Fortunately, the explosion accident did not affect the normal operation of the China Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline. The Kazakh media reacted blandly to the accident

accidents occur frequently in China's energy industry

at about 2 a.m. on the day of Dushanzi crude oil tank explosion, the No. 1 well of the No. 1 mine belonging to Xingya energy construction and Chemical Industry Corporation, regiment 102 of Xinjiang production and Construction Corps, 40 kilometers away from Urumqi, exploded, and all 14 underground miners were in trouble. Two major safety accidents occurred in one day, and more than 20 lives were wiped out in an instant

these two safety accidents in Xinjiang can be said to be the epitome of the frequent accidents in China's energy industry. In recent years, the characteristics of the development stage of China's heavy industry have determined that a large amount of energy is consumed in various industries, which is used for high-temperature utilization. The supply of crude oil, natural gas, coal and chemical products continues to be tight, and the price continues to rise, which also makes some enterprises "simply pursue profits, blindly exceed production, and ignore production safety"

Yu an, a law professor at the school of public administration of Tsinghua University, believes that public safety has become the primary issue in the field of public management. If we want to "cure the root cause", we must increase the public obligations of enterprises and raise the safety cost of enterprises, that is, let enterprises pay for public safety
