This document identifies the standards and considers alternative designs and equipment used in onshore storage tanks for petroleum liquids, specifically concerning satisfying measurement and sampling requirements. Other issues such as foundation stability, mechanical design, coating and corrosion protection, fire protection, filling and emptying connections, access for inspection and cleaning, are not
addressed.

The document will be of use to all those involved with measurement and sampling of petroleum liquids, and guides those considering installation or upgrade of shore tanks regarding the need to allow for measurement and sampling activities

While many of the comments will also apply to other types of tankage, only vertical cylindrical storage tanks are considered here, as they are the most common design.
