Containment Basins in the Oil & Gas Industry
In the oil and gas industry, safety is a number one consideration. This is especially true in today’s world, where everyone has such a strong focus on environmentally safe practices. If you’re storing fuel or oil improperly, you run the risk of spills, which can be incredibly costly and in some cases even present a major health hazard to those exposed. It’s one of the biggest risks associated with this industry, and to confirm that, all one needs to do is glance at the headlines.
That’s why it’s critical to use a proper containment tank anytime you need to store fuel or gas. Oil and gas are often stored above-ground, and as such, the risk of spillage is all the greater. Consequently, this is a threat that the authorities take very seriously. In fact, in many countries, it’s required by law that one use a suitably safe and secure containment basin to avoid the environmental and safety hazards that go hand in hand with the storage of hazardous materials. Failure to do so could result in hefty fines, not to mention an unsafe work environment.
Blaze Plastics specializes in the construction of high quality plastic containment basins for your oil and gas storage needs. Our tanks are made from an incredibly strong polyethylene resin, and molded in a unique rotational process that totally eliminates seams and weak points. Factor in a ribbed design for heightened structural integrity, and you’ll see that Blaze Plastic’s tanks are the containment solution you’ve been looking for.
In addition, Blaze also offers spill containment trays made of similarly high quality materials. These trays are shallow alternatives to containment basins that are suitable for smaller scale storage jobs, and can reduce or contain a spill quite nicely under the right circumstances. They also have the advantage of protecting your facility floors against the condensation that can all too often build up on the outside of liquid storage tanks. When the two types of devices, basins and trays, are used appropriately, safety is maximized.
The bottom line is that those individuals working with hazardous materials such as oil and gas have a responsibility to ensure that their work practices are safe and secure. With spills being the number one potential hazard in this industry, it follows that containment is the number one way to reduce those hazards. Therefore, you need a containment solution that you can trust; you need the industry-leading design and material superiority of containment basins and trays from Blaze Plastics.
