American Petroleum Institute Tanks

At Southeastern Construction, we design custom fabricated above ground, welded steel storage tanks that meet the exacting standards of the American Petroleum Institute (API).

API establishes standards for the design and fabrication of welded steel storage tanks for storing oil and other liquids. The API standard is applicable for stationary atmospheric and low pressure petroleum storage tanks used in all sectors of the petroleum and petrochemical industry. We serve customers in the oil and gas industry and beyond for their custom, over dimensional, API certified storage tanks in carbon steel and stainless steel.

API 620 Tanks

The design of API 620 tanks has a single, vertical, centered axis of revolution and is used for materials with higher internal pressures such as liquified natural gas and cryogenic tanks. The API 620 requires a flat or elevated bottom in order to properly store the steel tank.

API 650 Tanks

The design of API 650 tanks allows them to store gas, oil, chemicals, water, and biofuel for common steel tanks in the oil industry. API 650 tanks need even support for the whole bottom and stored in non refrigerated facilities that have a maximum design temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
