Crude Oil Storage

With decades of knowledge and experience working in the oil fields, Superior Tank provides the industry’s premier storage solution for crude oil and other petrochemicals. Our history includes extensive experience with both bolted steel tanks and welded steel tanks and we are one of the only tank manufacturers qualified to produce bolted steel tanks featuring the prestigious API 12B Monogram.

Common Applications:

Our extensive safety program and ability to produce both bolted and welded tanks allows us to manufacture tanks for various applications including:

Fontana, CA

Our bolted and welded steel tanks are used throughout the oilfields for storage of crude oil. In addition, our storage tanks can be used for containment of raw water used during the fracking process as well as produced water. Our epoxy coatings on tank interiors are durable enough to resist the saltwater and brine water found in saltwater treatment plants. In addition, we can design and manufacture oil wash tanks used to separate oil and water. Our larger crude oil storage tanks are utilized within oil terminals, petrochemical processing facilities and pipeline networks.

As well as oil storage, our bolted and welded tanks are used for Bioenergy applications such as biomass storage and ethanol storage. Our steel tanks are well suited for storage of other hydrocarbons such as animal fats, select petroleum oils, detergents, diesel oil, palm oil, kerosene and tallow.
