API-650 is the standard governing welded tanks for oil storage and is also commonly used for many other products. It specifies minimum requirements with regard to tank design, fabrication, welding, inspection, and erection requirements. API-650 is widely used for tanks that are designed to internal pressures of 2.5 PSI or less and store products such as crude oil, gasoline, chemicals and produced water. CT&V has extensive experience with API-650 tanks for refineries, terminals, pulp and paper, asphalt, aviation, water and power, and more.
API-620 specifies the minimum requirements for construction of large, welded, low pressure storage tanks. These storage tanks operate at 121°C (250°F) or less with an operating pressure of up to 15 PSI. API-620 tanks are generally utilized for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) storage as well as other products which require internal design pressures in excess of those allowed by API-650.
