Why Choose this Training Course?
An Underground Solvent Storage Tank system (USST) is a combination of tank and underground piping connected that has at least 10 percent of its combined volume underground. The greatest potential hazard from a leaking UST is that it can seep into the soil and contaminate groundwater. In addition, the USST environmental risks include the potential for fire and explosion. Such hazards highlight the importance of this customized course for the persons responsible for operating and maintaining this type of storage tanks.
This PetroKnowledge Renovating Interior Underground Solvent Storage Tanks (USST) training course will highlight the following issues related to renovation of the (USST) interior:
Requirements for USST installation and protection
Regulations for USST monitoring and maintenance
Detection and corrective actions of USST leaks
Best practices for renovating USST internal surfaces
Assessment and testing of USST internal surfaces applied coating
What are the Goals?
By the end of this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will learn to:
Outline the USST common internal surface defects
Explain the methods of USST surface preparation
Repair USST internal surface imperfections
Apply proper coating for USST renovation
Assess the applied USST internal surface coating
