Two Specialised & Comprehensive Courses on Storage Tanks

Manage environmental implications of hydrocarbon emmisions

15 – 17 October 2024, Dubai, UAE

Conference Connection and Mantle Consultant Associates are pleased to offer two specialised and comprehensive courses for storage tanks in Dubai, UAE:- 

  • Crude Storage Tank Operation, Maintenance & Safety (STO), 15-16 October 2024
  • LNG Storage Tanks: Design, Construction & Operation (LNGSTO), 17 October 2024

STO - The emission of dangerous hydrocarbon vapours and their impact on the environment is an important concern for tank farm operators looking to ensure that their facilities meet local and international standards.

Focusing on the operation, maintenance, and safety of crude and product storage tanks, this 2-day course will cover the concepts and features of storage tank equipment, including Rim Gap Seal Systems, Internal Floating Roofs, and Aluminium Dome Roofs, as well as best practices and practical measures for controlling vapour emissions in line with international requirements.


LNGSTO - This one-day course offers a comprehensive insight into the basic design, construction, and operation of LNG storage tanks, expounding on the fundamentals of cryogenic storage and the safety features inherent in above-ground LNG tanks.

Aligned with industry standards such as API 625, API 650, and API 620, which govern large, welded, low-pressure storage tanks including LNG tanks, this course delves into the intricacies of tank design and construction without endorsing specific manufacturers or equipment. Instead, it aims to familiarize participants with the diverse array of tanks available internationally.
