Field Tank Construction

70,000 Barrels of Increased Gasoline Storage

This new 70,000 bbl gasoline storage tank was constructed in the middle of a highly congested, fully operational facility in Northeastern British Columbia. The area required 100% spark containment with the use of external scaffold and hoarding provided by a local contractor within the area. Following mechanical construction, the installation of a full contact internal floating roof, internal coating and external painting were completed in line with the expedited project scheduling demands.
