Course Overview

What is a tank farm? In simple terms, it is a storage of liquids and gases. A tank farm also includes all the equipment used during the storage of liquids and gases. Storage tanks are containers that hold liquids or compressed gases and can be used in reservoirs or manufactured plants.

Storage tanks are available in various shapes and sizes, depending on the nature of liquids or gases they hold. Some storage tanks require floating roofs in addition to the fixed roofs. The floating roofs rise and fall with the level of liquid inside the tank and are considered to be a means to safety and pollution protection.

This Zoe training course will empower you with a detailed understanding and knowledge of tank farms and storage tanks. Through this course, you will thoroughly understand all aspects of liquid and gas storage, with specific expertise to ensure optimal temperature and pressure control as well as extreme safety. This course will provide all that is required to assume higher roles and responsibilities across any industry.

Course Objectives

The primary objective of this training program is to empower professionals with—

  • adequate knowledge and understanding of tank farms and storage tanks
  • the required understanding and skill to manage end-to-end operations at tank farms
  • the knowledge and experience to determine the right shapes, sizes and mechanisms of storage tanks depending on the liquid or gas to be stored
  • the necessary experience and confidence to ensure regular inspections and maintenance of storage tanks to save organisational costs and provide increased safety
  • the awareness and capabilities to apply modern techniques in tank farms to enhance operational efficiency, thereby leading to organisational growth and development
  • the confidence and knowledge to mentor other professionals on best practices related to handling liquids and gases at various temperatures and pressures in storage tanks
  • the awareness and strategic skills to plan storage activities and other related functions, in turn predicting risks and making provisions to address these
