P1716 - IEEE Draft Recommended Practice for Managing Natural Disaster Impact on key electrical systems and installations in Petroleum and Chemical Facilities

The purpose of this project is to provide guidelines and recommendations to minimize the economic impact to petroleum and chemical facilities throughout the globe due to natural disasters. The document provides information to users on how to pre assess damage potential based on the defined disasters; protect facilities during natural disasters, and implement processes to be followed for a speedier recovery effort of key electrical systems. The document begins with addressing basic human needs after a natural disaster prior to addressing the financial considerations.This document provides recommendations and guidelines for managing natural disaster impact on key electrical facilities and systems in petroleum and chemical facilities in order to minimize economic damage by pre-assessment risk evaluation of electrical facilities, by Identification of mitigation techniques and system designs to minimize impact and by outlining procedures for faster recovery of electrical systems after a natural disaster.
