Oilfield Storage Tanks

Petrosmith produces shop made oilfield storage tanks ranging in size from 100 BBL to 1200 BBL, and can produce both monogrammed and non-monogrammed tanks built in accordance to API 12F, either 12th or 13th edition varieties, as well as API 650 compliant shop-built tanks.  All tanks are constructed from 3/16” and 1/4” A36 quality materials,  and designed, constructed, and tested to API specifications.  Petrosmith’s tank operation is completely integrated with all operations from tank fabrication to blasting, coating, painting and final assembly done in-house at our Abilene facility.  Petrosmith has over 110,000 square feet of tank fabrication facilities, including over 40,000 square feet of blast, coating, and painting bays.

Gunbarrel Tanks

Gunbarrel tanks are an excellent choice for Tank Batteries when atmospheric pressure, gravitational force, and retention time are sufficient for the adequate separation of oil, water, and gas.  Our Petrosmith standard design Gunbarrel tanks come with flume pipe assembly, spreader table, waterleg outlet with tie down brackets, API 5L threaded couplings (4” standard) and bolt-on gas chamber (flume pipe cap).  We can provide our standard design Gunbarrel tank or we can customize our standard design to match your specific requirements.


Specifications – API 12F

Petrosmith manufactures tanks ranging from 100 to 1000 barrels capacity, with either standard threaded couplings, or flanged connections as required.   Customers can choose from flat bottom tanks, A-type, or B-type tank bottoms built to API 12F specifications.  Tanks can be made to either 8 oz. or 16 oz. construction, depending on the customer’s requirement or preference.

Stairway and Walkway

On location, employee’s safety and access to every area is essential. Petrosmith’s walk and stair units stand up to the rigors of the field while giving workers access to vital equipment components.

Walkways and stairways are constructed from prefabricated components designed to be field erected alongside of tanks or similar structures. Petrosmith standard walkways consist of tread sections, railing assemblies, and toe boards so the completed structure will support a uniform load of 50lb/ft2 as specified in the API twelfth edition. Standard stairways are designed for field erection with a 26” minimum width capable of supporting 100lb per linear foot of tread width as specified in API 12F twelfth edition.   Walk and stair can be provided in either galvanized finish (standard) or painted to match the tanks.  Additionally, API 12F 13th Edition stair and walk available upon request.

Petrosmith’s variety of coatings make it possible to prepare tanks of all sizes for virtually any application. These are high-quality, long-lasting coatings from premium trusted brand names like Sherwin Williams, International / AkzoNobel, PPG, Corchem, and others. The coatings are appropriate for use in the presence of salt water, petroleum products and other substances utilized in the production of fossil fuels.
