Terminals and Storage Facilities

Terminals and Storage Facilities

About the Course

This course treats key issues associated with development, design, construction, and operation of terminals and storage facilities for liquid hydrocarbons and NGLs. This course focuses on terminal codes and siting constraints, terminal design and equipment layout, types of storage and selection criteria, design considerations for loading racks, fire protection, vapor recovery, blending equipment, and water treatment, detailed design of storage tanks, vessels, and caverns, and operations and maintenance. Safety, quality control, system reliability, availability, and regulatory compliance are integrated throughout the course. Case studies and team exercises are used.

Course Objectives

  • Differentiate between the storage and terminals for hydrocarbon liquids (oils and products) and natural gas liquids
  • Identify various storage systems and the typical and appropriate applications
  • Define the equipment and arrangement of typical terminals and their design considerations
  • List the codes and standards as well as key regulatory and environmental compliance that apply to terminals and storage
  • Define the typical operations of terminals and associated storage facilities
  • Describe the key factors affecting safety, product quality, system reliability and availability
