Storage tanks have been widely used in many industrial particularly in the oil refineryand petrochemical industry which are to store a multitude of different product with crudeoil as one if it. There are different types of tank such as fixed roof tank, open roof tank,floating roof tank etc. Floating roof tank is which the roof floats directly on top of theproduct, with no vapour space and eliminating the possibility of flammable atmosphere.There are various industrial code and standard available for the basic requirement fortank design and construction. Commercial software are also available in the market forthe basic design, hence tank designer would rely wholly on the software without detailunderstanding. Despite of the various standard and code, there is limited procedure andrules in designing the floating roof which result lots of floating roof failure and causedinjuries and fatalities accident. Design and safety concern has been a great concern forthe increasing case of fire and explosion due the tank failure.The main objective of this project is “HOW TO DESIGN A NEW FLOATING ROOFTANK”. The aim of this project is to develop basic rules and procedures, highlighting theconcerns in designing, construction and operation of a floating roof by taking an existingOil Development Project with it’s readily available information as a base, to design thetank, and identify the problematic and lesson learnt throughout the project.
