The In-Service Robotic Tank Inspection Course is a game changer for operators and asset owners that want to utilize robotic inspection methods to eliminate or defer internal tank inspections of crude oil, diesel or other hazardous fluid storage tanks. The two-day course guides participants from conventional inspection methods through an in-depth exploration of in-service robotic tank inspections. Attendees will gain a solid understanding of benefits, risks and challenges, risk mitigation tools, and key project and program management requirements for in-service robotic tank inspection projects.
Tank bottom inspection generally involves Confined Space Entry (CSE) inside out-of-service tanks.
CSE, which includes de-inventorying, fluid transfer, cleaning, hazardous waste disposal, and many other hazardous activities, is a high-cost endeavor. The associated activities can range in cost from $500K to over $1 million for large storage tanks. Revenue losses for some operators from unavailable tanks in critical production service can be multiples of this amount.
Case studies have demonstrated that internal in-service robotic tank inspection can:
- Eliminate the HSE risks and hazardous activities associated Confined Space Entry (CSE)
- Reduce overall emissions
- Avoid significant revenue losses caused by taking production critical tanks out of service
- Lower overall costs versus the conventional inspection approach
- Some asset owners have realized net operating cost and revenue benefits of greater than $ 1 to 1.5 million for a given tank.
