Introduction
TRAINING DESCRIPTION

Storage Tanks find applications in different petrochemical plants, refineries, and petroleum facilities. This course is designed to cover different aspects of storage tanks, the design, construction, and methods of inspection to assure the integrity of the new constructed tanks. Tank will experience deterioration after been put in service due to different causes. To assure its integrity in service, tank need to be inspected, thickness measurements must be performed and fitness for service must be applied. To prevent and minimize the deterioration the tank must be protected against corrosion using cathodic protection systems. Safety of storage tanks is also of very essential requirements, especially for those containing hazardous type of material. Tanks must be protected from over pressurization using venting and relieving devices, and most important must be protected from fire.

The above topics will be covered in detail over five days. Discussion and participation from the delegates are encouraged to enrich the course outcomes. 

Objective
