Improvements in system gain losses across terminal and pipeline tank farms
Presentation to demonstrate how a tank farm and/or a pipeline company could make improvements to their gain losses by 0.015% to 0.025% over a twelve month rolling average through training, updates to instrumentation and improvements in procedures. This equates to a reduction of inventory uncertainty of $59,000 per tank per year (65'x130' TK @ ~50 $ / bbl. A reset as to what is considered normal data collection and acceptable accuracies.

Prevent incidents and increase efficiency with floating roof monitoring
Though floating roof storage tanks provide many benefits, they also come with specific risks. A damaged, sunken, or collapsed roof means costly repairs, loss of storage capacity, and significant environmental and safety risks. Manual inspections should be carried out to detect damage to the roof, but this is often not done properly, if at all. Instead, non-critical damage is left unrepaired and will in time escalate into an emergency.
Automatic Floating Roof Monitoring provides better safety, increased automatization of an otherwise manual task, and the ability to discover faults early. A new solution with wireless guided wave radars makes installation easier – just plug and play into an existing wireless network.
