Offshore oil storage tanks and gas storage facilities

Offshore storage tanks are the primary modes of storing resources recovered from offshore fields. The oil and gas are stored for either processing and further refining or transporting to customers.

Some of the common oil storage tanks and gas storage facilities used are:

  • Fixed roof storage tanks
  • Floating roof storage tanks
  • Underground storage tanks and facilities
  • Horizontal tanks
  • Pressure tanks, and
  • Liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanks

Concrete, stone, fibreglass, steel and plastic are the most common types of material used for the construction of oil storage tanks and gas storage systems.

Offshore storage solutions

Storage solutions in the offshore sector are meant for storing not only oil and gas, but also chemicals, intermediaries, and waste onboard offshore platforms and vessels. The size, dimensions and materials used for offshore storage solutions depend on the type of product being stored.

The most common types of storage solutions used in the offshore sector are:

  • Floating production storage and offloading systems (FPSO) to store the recovered oil and gas prior to offloading
  • Offshore container solutions for storing hazardous and non-hazardous materials such as dry goods, liquids, gases, chemicals, powders and granulates, and food items
  • Skips to store drilling waste such as drill cuttings to avoid spillage on offshore platforms, apart from handling other waste products
  • Storage tanks for storing chemicals, helifuel, acids, oil, gases, waste oil and other intermediaries
  • Racks to store tanks and cylinders
