Suretank supplies aviation fuel storage vessels to BP

Suretank is delighted to have provided the aviation fuel storage package for BP's Eastern Trough Area Project (ETAP).  Suretank was awarded a section of the overall contract in partnership with Harran Limited.

Suretank designed and delivered two aviation fuel storage vessels with a working capacity of 6m3, designed and manufactured to ASME VIII , PED [97 / 23 / EC] & CAP 437, complete with the following requirements: Local level gauge and high level control for filling of the storage vessels; Inspection manway; Floating suction; Name Plates c/w CE marking; Fabricated from customised high strength 316L stainless steel.

The storage vessels were designed so that fuel can be drawn from either vessel. The vessels are sloped and feature built-in drainage facilities. Critically, they were designed specifically for the roof of the additional living quarters on the ETAP's quarters and utilities (QU) platform

In order to minimise response times on the overall project, Suretank and Harran Limited worked with BP's tier one partner, AMEC, on the design, approvals and project management.

Suretank was responsible for the technical integrity of the aviation fuel storage units, including design, supply of materials, manufacture, inspection, testing and supply of process and mechanical guarantees for the equipment in accordance with strict BP and AMEC specification, data sheets, codes, standards and specifications.

Suretank was responsible for the mechanical design, fabrication, documentation and preparation for shipment of the equipment whilst also ensuring that all equipment and components provided were suitable for the operating conditions stated and for the listed utilities.

AMEC needed this project delivered on time as it was needed for the overall larger project of the upgraded provision of an additional living quarters on the ETAP QU platform. Therefore this project needed these units delivered to all BP/AMEC requirements on time to avoid large and costly delays.

Ralph Hume from Harran said: "We have a long established working relationship with Suretank. They have a proven reputation for providing quality engineering solutions to bespoke requirements with a particular focus on safety, and we were confident that they were the right partner for the project.  The units were delivered on time and to the highest specifications."
