Our tanks range in size from 40 to 60 feet high, and 150 to 270 feet in diameter, holding anywhere from 57,000 to 575,000 barrels of petroleum products. The size of the tank is determined by the design requirements of pipeline and refinery customers.

• Floating roofs on storage tanks are made with primary and secondary seals to contain vapors. These seals are located near the surface of the oil and reduce emissions as well as risk of ignition.

• State-of-the-art systems ranging from radar that tracks tank levels to mixers are used to maintain product integrity during breakout storage.

All BFM Marine Terminal above-ground storage tanks are constructed using quality steel plate engineered to exacting federal codes and national standards for the size, environment and product to be stored.

Among other integrity testing, new tanks are filled with water and monitored for potential leaks during hydrostatic testing prior to being placed into service. In addition, cathodic protection provides corrosion control as normal operations are engaged. Tanks are also grounded to minimize static electricity build up during filling and refilling, and to redirect lightning strikes, should any occur. All of our facilities are routinely monitored, inspected and maintained. Trained terminal personnel complete a visual inspection of every tank at least monthly. Additional annual inspections are also performed.
