When working on oil fields, one of the largest concerns is the storage of fracking fluids, hydrocarbons, process water, production water, and necessary fuels. Knowing these concerns and bulk liquid storage requirements, one of the reasons we began offering collapsible tanks is to help save customers space and money!
Collapsible Tanks for Oil Fields
When used for oil fields, the Collapsible Frac Tank will typically feature a larger capacity of at least 20,000 gallons. While this is not a requirement, locations usually require large amounts of water or fuel and are looking for as few tanks as possible to store this liquid.
Depending on your application, tanks may be made from different fabric thicknesses and materials to meet the demands of your location.
Common sizes we see being used for these tanks include:
- 20,000 gallons
- 50,000 gallons
- 70, 000 gallons
- 90,000 gallons
- 100,000 gallons
- 200,000 gallons
However, collapsible tanks can be in any size between 1 and 250,000 gallons so don't hesitate to ask for specific sizing requirements.
What can a Collapsible Tank for Oil Fields Store?
Oil field tanks, especially in the larger capacities, will usually feature a thicker fabric for storing several gallons of liquid in the same tank. Some of the most common applications we see these tanks being used for includes:
- Brine Water Storage
- Fracking Fluids
- Fuel (Diesel)
- Temporary Water with Hydrocarbons
- Process Water Storage
When compared to standard steel models, the collapsible tank has several inherent advantages that are especially useful in an oilfield storage setting. These advantages will include:
- Better Heat Retention: This can be a huge cost advantages for cold areas. When compared to steel, collapsible tanks have a 50% better heat retention.
- Large Capacities: One of the most obvious advantages of these tanks is their increased storage capacity. While a standard frac tank can only store at most 600 BBL, one of our largest collapsible units (210,000 gallons) will be able to store up to 5000 BBL.
- Shipping Savings: Collapsible in natural, these oil field storage tanks can be folded up or rolled up when shipped to your location. This can save you huge amounts in shipping and transportation costs.
Overall, whether you're looking for a fuel tank, water storage tank, frac tank or liquid storage option, this is one oil field storage tank you will want to consider. View All Collapsible Pillow Tanks.
