Second tank farm of Amur GPP feedstock and product area is preparing to receive products
The second tank farm of the Amur GPP feedstock and product area is preparing to receive liquefied petroleum gases.
Internal purging followed by nitriding and connection of pipelines have been completed on eight spherical tanks of this farm.
Commissioning is in progress. Improvement of this tank farm site will begin with the onset of warm weather.
The feedstock and product area comprises of three farms with 20 spherical tanks with a volume of 2,600 cubic meters each. The weight of each spherical tank is more than 400 tons, the diameter is 16.6 m, the thickness of the shell is 40–48 mm.
Each tank is provided with two lightning arresters. Spherical tanks will receive and store Amur GPP products: propane, butane, natural gas liquids, as well as pentane-hexane cut.
The tanks are custom made at the plants in Yekaterinburg (Russia) and Lanzhou (China).
Tanks with an increased volume of 2,400 cubic meters instead of the standard 600 cubic meters helped reduce the metal consumption of the feedstock and product area and reduce the area of the Amur GPP.
