Tecam’s José Miguel González looks at the challenges and solutions for gas venting for the tank storage sector
Stockout of raw materials, pandemics, wars… Unfortunately, recent years have shown us that our society may change suddenly, from one day to another, causing severe and very dramatic effects on our lives.
Under this uncertain scenario, optimised management of fuels and hydrocarbons storage is becoming more and more important. It would not be a surprise if a substantial number of tank storage terminals needed to be upgraded to higher storage capacities at some strategic locations, or even if new terminals needed to be constructed. The impact on daily life is minimised by increasing the world stock of storage of fuels and hydrocarbons – especially as long as dependence on these sources of energy is still relevant, which seems to be the case at least for the next two decades.
