scope:

This standard provides the minimum requirements to install, operate, maintain, inspect, repair, and reconstruct both new and existing tanks used in petroleum production service in a manner that includes best practices for tank facility safety, security, and environmental protection.

Tanks in refineries, petrochemical plants, marketing bulk plants, and pipeline storage facilities operated by carriers are not within the scope of this standard.

This standard is intended primarily for application to tanks fabricated to API Specifications 12B, 12D, 12F, and 12P which are employed in onshore productions services but may be applied to other tanks and services at the discretion of the Owner/Operator.

Annex G of this standard contains specific safety information applicable to tanks. For additional safety information, see other publications referenced within this standard.

The schematic drawings included in this standard are examples of some features described in the standard.

Lease automatic custody transfer (LACT) operations are covered in the API Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards.

NOTE A bullet (•) at the beginning of a paragraph indicates that there is an expressed decision or action recommended or required to be addressed by or on behalf of the Owner/Operator. The Purchaser's responsibility is not limited to these decisions or actions alone. When such decisions and actions are taken, they are to be specified in documents such as requisitions, change orders, data sheets, and drawings.
