Description / Abstract:

This Practice covers storage of liquid products at design pressures from atmospheric to 15 psig for refineries, chemical plants, pipeline locations, marketing and distribution terminals, and production facilities. It provides guidance in avoiding recurring problems and indicates preferred practices where appropriate. Although intended primarily for carbon steel tanks, most of the factors discussed are applicable regardless of the material of construction.

Requirements for specifying and supplying API 650 tanks are defined in PIP VESTA002.

Purpose

This Practice provides information to assist engineers in the selection and specification of aboveground storage tanks.
