The article gives a review of extinguishing fires of oil and oil products at oil production facilities, in particular extinguishing flames of oil and oil products with fire extinguishing foam, produced from foam forming agents of various nature. The objective of this work was to conduct a series of comparative tests to determine fire extinguishing efficiency of foam, produced from various fluorine containing foam forming agents. As a result, there were studied foam forming agents of both domestic and foreign manufacturers as well as fire extinguishing efficiency of those foam forming agents was identified. Based on the results of the experimental studies comparative data regarding critical and optimal intensity of foam supply for all foam forming agents under the study was obtained. The data obtained can be used to provide fire protection at oil production facilities and for more efficient fire extinguishing at those facilities. Main conclusion from the tests conducted is availability of minimum specific flow of foam forming agent aqueous solution based on the intensity of foam supply for all foam forming agents under study which allows to identify optimal intensity of foam supply, necessary for successful fire extinguishing of oil and oil products.
