Expert tank consultant and Tank Storage Magazine contributor Earl Crochet has joined the board of directors of Square Robot, a leader in robotic tank inspection.

Crochet brings more than 34 years of experience in pipelines and terminals, where he has held roles in engineering, operations, business development, environmental health and safety (EH&S), and management.

‘We are delighted and honoured to have Earl join the board of Square Robot as an independent director,’ says David Lamont, CEO of Square Robot. ‘His deep industry client-side knowledge, experience, and strategic thinking will be of tremendous benefit to the company as we continue to develop and grow our world leading robotic services.’

Crochet has been a certified API 653 aboveground storage tank inspector since 1993, and has been active in API since 1994. His extensive career has allowed him to serve on multiple committees and boards including; API Subcommittee of Above Ground Storage Tanks chairman, API 2350 Tank Overfill Prevention Committee co-chair, and the board of directors for ILTA from 2009 to 2015. In 2020 Crochet started Crochet Midstream Consulting, and co-founded the Global Learning Consultancy with Dave Cushman to help owners and operators identify and solve their problems while training them on industry best practices.

‘As an inventor and a certified API 653 inspector, it was reinvigorating seeing the technology that Square Robot was bringing to the world of tank inspections,’ says Crochet. ‘The addition of robotics allows owners and operators to feel more confident about their data, risk management and lifecycle of their tanks.’
