  • API STD 653: TANK INSPECTION, REPAIR, ALTERATION, ANDRECONSTRUCTION
    This standard covers steel storage tanks built to API 650 and itspredecessor API 12C. It provides minimum requirements formaintaining the integrity of such tanks after they have been placedin service and addresses inspection, repair, alteration,relocation, and reconstruction.

    API RP 651: CATHODIC PROTECTION OF ABOVEGROUND PETROLEUM STORAGETANKS
    The purpose of this recommended practice (RP) is to presentprocedures and practices for achieving effective corrosion controlon aboveground storage tank bottoms through the use of cathodicprotection. This RP contains provisions for the application ofcathodic protection to existing and new aboveground storage tanks.Corrosion control methods based on chemical control of theenvironment or the use of protective coatings are not covered indetail.

    API RP 652: LININGS OF ABOVEGROUND PETROLEUM STORAGE TANKBOTTOMS
    This recommended practice (RP) provides guidance on achievingeffective corrosion control in aboveground storage tanks byapplication of tank bottom linings. It contains informationpertinent to the selection of lining materials, surfacepreparation, lining application, cure, and inspection of tankbottom linings for existing and new storage tanks. In many cases,tank bottom linings have proven to be an effective method ofpreventing internal corrosion of steel tank bottoms.

    API STD 650: WELDED TANKS FOR OIL STORAGE
    This standard establishes minimum requirements for material,design, fabrication, erection, and inspection for vertical,cylindrical, aboveground, closed- and open-top, welded storagetanks in various sizes and capacities for internal pressuresapproximating atmospheric pressure (internal pressures notexceeding the weight of the roof plates), but a higher internalpressure is permitted when additional requirements are met (see1.1.13). This standard applies only to tanks whose entire bottom isuniformly supported and to tanks in non-refrigerated service thathave a maximum design temperature of 93 °C (200 °F) or less.
