The construction of large oil depots has become increasingly important, and oil storage safety also becomes a hot topic. It can be seen from multiple major safety accidents that have occurred in recent years that lightning is considered being one of the main causes of oil tank fires. Through in-depth research on safety issues, we are trying to find a scientific and economical safety management model for oil depots. Most of the objects stored in the oil depots are flammable liquids, and the oil gases which are produced by oil products can easily cause an explosion. A little carelessness may cause casualties and huge economic losses. The main purpose of this research is to design a lightning protection system for fixed roof oil tanks on the ground. By providing a complete design of lightning protection, to show how to ensure the safety level of the oil tank and oil depots, then the authors briefly describe other latest technologies for lightning protection which could be used in the future improvement.
