Why choose this Online Training Course?

Storage Tank Design, Construction & Maintenance is a PetroKnowledge online training course designed to offer the participants an insight of how tank farm storage tanks are designed, constructed, operated, inspected and maintained.

This PetroKnowledge Storage Tank Design, Construction & Maintenance online training course provides a comprehensive detailed overview of the American Petroleum Institute API-650, API 620 and API 2610 specifications as well as the API 653 inspection standard.

Storage tanks are containers that hold flammable liquids, or compressed flammable gases for short, medium or long-term storage. Crude oil or crude product storage tank design and construction, as used in industries such as petroleum production, refinery tank farms, intermediate product storage including LPG, and product transfer operations, petrochemicals, as well as other industries consuming or producing flammable liquids, will be covered.

This PetroKnowledge Storage Tank Design, Construction & Maintenance online training course will highlight the most recent revisions and upcoming changes in the aforementioned standards and will in addition include essential storage tank technology not covered by these standards.


Training Objectives
