Above Ground Storage Tank Gap Seal Inspections
Did you know?
- Each year about 14,000 oil spills are reported, according to the EPA website.
- It is estimated that there are 618,000 facilities that are regulated under EPA SPCC in the United States.
- There are more regulated aboveground storage tanks than underground storage tanks in the United States.
- Tanks under 300,000 gallons represent 90% of the actual tank units in operation.
- STI estimates that as many as 4 million shop-fabricated oil storage tanks have been produced since the mid-1960’s. It is difficult to assess how many of these tanks are still in use today, but anecdotal evidence suggests that tanks are often used for 40 years or more.
Above ground storage tank (AST) inspections must adhere to the American Petroleum Institute (API) standard 653. These standards provide guidelines to inspect and repair above ground storage tanks use in the chemical and petroleum Industry.
Envirotest has the experience and the manpower to assist with your inspections. Give us a call today and let us tell you how we can help.
