OMV Petrom Commissions Romania’s Largest Crude Oil Storage Tank

OMV Petrom has commissioned a new crude oil tank on the Petrobrazi refinery platform. The tank has been designed and built according to the latest standards in the field for increased safety. It features double walls and a double base, an aluminium dome cover, and an inner floating lid to retain vapour emissions. The construction of the project took approximately two years, with investments exceeding €23 million.

Radu Caprau, member of OMV Petrom’s executive board, responsible for refining and marketing says: ‘The construction of the new oil tank represents another important project successfully completed on the Petrobrazi platform, along with the installation of new coke drums and other modernisation projects. All these investments strengthen our ability to ensure the smooth operation of the refinery in safe conditions and to ensure the fuel stocks necessary to supply the market in Romania and the region. The project has an important environmental component by reducing vapour emissions to near zero.’

The tank has a total capacity of 60,000 m3 and can store raw material for the equivalent of 1.2 million fuel fills.

Since 2005, OMV Petrom has invested more than €2 billion in the Petrobrazi refinery, with one third of this investment contributing to reducing the environmental impact.
