Introduction

Storage Tank Design, Construction & Maintenance is a course designed to offer the participants an insight of how tank farm storage tanks are designed, constructed, operated, inspected and maintained. This training course provides a comprehensive detailed overview of the American Petroleum Institute API-650, API 620 and API 2610 specifications as well as the API 653 inspection standard.

Storage tanks are containers that hold flammable liquids, or compressed flammable gases for short, medium or long-term storage. Crude oil or crude product storage tank design and construction, as used in industries such as petroleum production, refinery tank farms, intermediate product storage including LPG, and product transfer operations, petrochemicals, as well as other industries consuming or producing flammable liquids, will be covered. The training course will highlight the most recent revisions and upcoming changes in the aforementioned standards and will in addition include essential storage tank technology not covered by these standards.

Objectives

The aim of this comprehensive training course is to provide the delegates with a sound understanding of the main features of flammable fluids’ storage, in above ground storage tanks, that are available in many shapes and sizes and includes: vertical and horizontal, cylindrical; open or closed with or without floating roofs. In addition, you will learn the fundamentals of tank terminal design, construction, operation, maintenance, and inspection.

At the end of this training course, participants will:

  • Learn about tank design features and components
  • Have an understanding of storage tank construction methods
  • Know the various materials of construction associated with storage tanks
  • Grasp the relevant types of storage tanks and their associated terminology
  • Assess storage tank performance
  • Appreciate the governing equations associated with tank design
  • Learn about tank safety issues
  • Learn about tank standards and codes
  • Appreciate failure mechanisms including corrosion
  • Learn about methods of tank protection, including linings and cathodic protection
  • Have an understanding of different methods of inspection

Training Methodology

The training course will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures, computer simulation, videos and interactive worked examples. Relevant case studies will be provided to illustrate the application of each tool in an operations environment. Each learning point will be re-enforced with practical exercises and ample opportunities for discussion and sharing of experiences.

Who Should Attend?

This training course is intended for tank farm and refinery employees or engineers who are required to select and or are involved in tank design, as well as anyone working in crude oil and or product storage facility. It is also intended for, but not limited to, professionals involved in handling, loading, or discharging of oil and gas cargoes.
