Can we calculate fire water requirements for a hydrocarbon well drilling site/rig site?

Drilling rigs usually have their own fixed water spray system but how can we, as a client ensure that it is sufficiently designed? Secondly, is there a requirement of any additional firewater inventory to cool down the rig structure, while we have sufficient inventory for cooling other equipment at site e.g. diesel operated power generators, etc.

 

NFPA recommended firewater application rates are used for the equipment other than the rig. So are there any codes/standards that can help for similar calculation developed for the rig?

 

Thanks
