In addition to offering gas pump repair in Texas and Louisiana, PumpTex also provides a range of additional services, including construction, maintenance, and fuel and oil tank decommissioning services. We are your full-service petroleum service company.
Tank decommissioning is the process of removing an oil or fuel tank that is no longer in use. It is a specialized service that a qualified petroleum service company must carry out to meet important safety requirements and minimize the environmental impact. At PumpTex, every tank decommissioning service we undertake will be carried out in accordance with all necessary industry and environmental standards. Our priority is always safety and customer satisfaction.
Fuel tanks can be permanently closed or decommissioned in situ by emptying the tank and filling it with an inert material in order to render it safe. Some of the steps that a petroleum service company like PumpTex will take may include the following:
Removing the tank completely may be necessary rather than filling it in. If this is the route you will be going down, the petroleum service company should ensure that the tank is safe before any excavation work can occur. The steps that will be carried out should resemble the following:
If the tank leaks, once it is bottomed out, it should be inerted using carbon dioxide or nitrogen foam and then sealed without adding water.
Your petroleum service company can begin excavation work after the tank has been prepared. This is done while the tank is full of water. Once the tank is ready to be lifted, the water should be emptied and disposed of using a hazardous waste contractor. The tank can then be removed either via an uplift or by cutting it into pieces to remove it. The tank must be disposed of appropriately, and the recipient of the waste materials must be aware that it was previously used as oil or fuel storage so that they can take the appropriate precautions to avoid fire or explosions when handling it.
If you have an oil or fuel tank that needs to be decommissioned, you need a petroleum service company you can trust to handle the job safely and in accordance with the appropriate regulations.
