Oil Tank Decommissioning

Oil tank decommissioning refers to safely and permanently taking an oil tank out of service, rendering it inactive and non-operational. Decommissioning is typically required when an oil tank is no longer in use or poses a potential risk due to age, deterioration, or changes in regulations. Industrial oil tank removal ensures that the tank is safely removed and if it can no longer be used for storing oil or fuel, then it is recycled. Our decommissioning team performs several steps in compliance with regulations:

  1. Emptying and Cleaning: Any industrial and domestic tank must be emptied of any remaining oil or fuel before decommissioning. Proper cleaning removes sludge and residue from the tank’s interior.
  2. Cutting and Sealing: All access points, vents, and pipes on the tank are securely cut and sealed to prevent future use.
  3. Removal of Contents: If the tank is being removed from the site entirely, the remaining contents, such as sludge or sediment, are safely disposed of in accordance with environmental regulations.
  4. Purging and Ventilation: The tank is purged of any remaining vapours and thoroughly ventilated to ensure no hazardous fumes.
  5. Tank Integrity Check: An inspection is conducted to ensure the tank’s structural integrity and identify any damage or signs of corrosion.
  6. Documentation: Proper documentation is essential throughout the decommissioning process, including records of tank cleaning, purging, sealing, and any necessary permits.
  7. Notification to Authorities: Depending on local regulations, authorities may need to be informed of the decommissioning process.
  8. Final Disposition: The final disposition of the decommissioned tank depends on the specific circumstances and regulations. In some cases, the tank may be removed from the site entirely, while in others, it may be filled with an inert material and left in place.
