EEMUA Publication 159 Above ground flat bottomed storage tanks - a guide to inspection, maintenance and repair

Version: Print

A digital/PDF version is also available.

EEMUA Publication 159 is considered to be the most comprehensive users' guide available on above ground vertical cylindrical, steel storage tanks. It is also used worldwide by regulators as an example of what good practice looks like.

EEMUA 159 is intended to assist in the establishment of essential inspection and maintenance requirements in order to minimise in-service problems and extend the useful life of these storage tanks. It offers guidance on tanks built to BS, EN or API standards for the storage of petroleum and chemical feed-stocks and products and refrigerated gases. These standards include BS 2654, API 620 and API 650, DIN 4119-1 and -2, CODRES, G0801 and EN 14015.

This new edition builds on previous work with additional material to reflect the advances in technology, understanding and operational information. Chapters that have been significantly updated include those on corrosion of tanks, general inspection techniques and interpretation of inspection data, fixed roofs, floating roofs, hydrotesting and probabilistic preventive maintenance (PPM). There are also completely new chapters on mothballing, turn-around procedures, aluminium domes and operation at elevated temperatures. Significantly, a new climate code has been added for Arctic conditions. There is also more focus on innovations and new inspection techniques.

The PPM methodology provides what is believed to be the world's only combined theory of risk based inspection (RBI) and reliability centred maintenance (RCM). The different and non-harmonised methodologies of RBI and RCM, since their initiations throughout various aspects of industry (not only storage tanks), have never been combined in the way proposed and implemented in EEMUA 159. The process is time-based, condition-based and reactive. 

The publication sets out key features for planning and executing inspection, maintenance and repair works. It includes descriptions of the key tank components that require inspection and maintenance, degradation mechanisms and common inspection techniques, and details on tank lifting. 

Comprehensive guidance is given on many key design features, on common problems experienced during operation and on repair methods. There are numerous new sections, such as on snow loading, planar tilt and overplating. Appendices offer guidance on how to perform assessment calculations on tank components, illustrated by means of sample calculations, as well as on repair methods.

EEMUA 159 is also the foundation for EEMUA's storage tank training and competency courses

EEMUA Publication 226, 'Design and installation of on-line analyser systems: a guide to technical enquiry and bid evaluation' is intended as a guide to assist in the development of a specification or material requisition for analysers and their associated support systems.The Publication, which supersedes EEMUA Publication 138 S1, should be used for enquiry purposes and the subsequent assessment of the bids presented by the prospective vendors. EEMUA 226 is not intended as a design specification in its own right and design guidance has been deliberately omitted. It should be read in conjunction with EEMUA Publication 138, 'Design and installation of on-line analyser systems'.

EEMUA Publication 213 Emission reduction from oil storage tanks and loading operations

Version: Print

If you are a user from an EEMUA member company, please log in and download your complimentary digital edition here.

A digital/PDF version is also available.

The prevention and control of emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from storage tanks containing oil or chemical feedstocks or products is addressed by this new EEMUA Publication. Emission reduction has become of primary importance, not only for economic reasons but increasingly to minimize the impact on the environment. EEMUA 213 begins by introducing the main theory on how emissions can be minimised by focusing on the source of emissions. It then guides tank owners and operators, manufacturers, designers and specifiers to the most suitable tank type for particular feedstocks based on the true vapour pressure (TVP) of products. Background theories on possible solutions to prevent or reduce emissions are provided. Guidelines are also given on the treatment of the escaping vapours when the achieved level of emissions does not match the intended level or statutory requirements.

This publication, now in its second edition (2010), has been completely revised and updated since first published in 2002. It relates to human-computer interface (HCI) systems provided for people operating industrial processes and activities on facilities such as chemical plant, power stations and oil refineries. HCI systems are one of a number of key areas that can influence - and optimise - human performance in the area of a centralised control room, so important in maintaining process and major hazard safety. EEMUA 201 gives guidance on: the factors to take into account when designing an HCI; display hierarchies; screen display format design; and control room design attributes which affect HCIs. It is for use by engineers and managers in both user and contracting organisations. The objective is not only to make plants more operable, efficient and able to avoid abnormal situations, but to be able to better manage such situations should they occur.
