Petroleum pipelines may utilize aboveground storage tanks to store and later reinject the petroleum back into a pipeline for further transportation. Aboveground tanks may also be used to store petroleum for distribution to service station, fuel aircraft, store fuel for power plants, and more.
There is still some confusion when it comes to terminal tanks (unregulated by PHMSA) versus breakout tanks (subject to pipeline safety regulations), and the differences between the two will be covered in detail. This course will review the industry standards utilized to design, construct, and maintain an aboveground breakout tank. Failures of breakout tanks can result in significant environmental damage, and the regulations in 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 195 place requirements on the operator of the breakout tank to ensure its integrity and operations in a safe manner. This course will help the operator meet those regulations.
