It’s costly and time consuming to inspect storage tanks. To optimize costs and inspection schedules, Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) can replace the traditional API 653, time-based, inspection intervals for initial and all subsequent inspections of storage tanks.
E2G offers a quantitative RBI methodology, based upon API 581, to help organizations, and tank farm or terminal personnel:
Tank RBI follows API RP 581 to calculate risk using the Probability of Failure (POF) and Consequence of Failure (COF) of the shell course and bottom.
Expand your existing tank integrity management program to include a quantitative tank RBI program.
Identifying damage mechanisms helps predict a tank’s remaining life and potential risk for failure. During a Damage Mechanism Review (DMR), we work with you to identify active and potential damage mechanisms and use that data to calculate the tank's probability of failure (POF). Common storage tank damage mechanisms are: internal corrosion, internal thinning, external corrosion and corrosion under insulation (CUI).
As an RBI industry leader, we continue to foster innovation by performing cutting-edge research and development into software tools and procedures to improve industry practices. API RBI, SagePlusTM and the Equity Engineering Practices (EEPs) include our knowledge of storage tanks, tank RBI and tank Fitness-for-Service to help terminal and tank farm personnel with a facility’s Integrity Management Program (IMP).
E2G’s multi-disciplinary subject matter experts (SMEs) collaborate to provide clients with a repeatable risk assessment that can be applied across an organization.
