The main reason for the oil spill accident of the oil storage tank is that the operators on duty are not responsible, the labor discipline is lax, they do not check the scales according to the prescribed time, and even go off duty or go to sleep. When the storage oil field is already full, it also blindly feeds oil into the tank, causing an oil spill in the storage tank. In addition, the wrong process, the failure of the oil tank level gauge, the failure of the oil pump at this station, and the inability to discharge the incoming oil in a timely manner will cause the oil tank to overflow. In addition to economic losses caused by such accidents, due to the large area of crude oil dispersion, the scope of environmental pollution is also large.
To prevent oil spill from the oil storage tank, when feeding oil into the oil storage tank. It is necessary to strictly grasp the rise of the liquid level in the tank, and the oil gauge is measured every 2 hours. When the liquid level is 1m from the limit height of the oil storage tank, shorten the oil gauge time and closely monitor the liquid level in the tank. When the process is reversed, the operation ticket system is strictly implemented, and one person operates, the person is guarded to prevent the wrong process.
When an oil spill accident occurs during storage and pumping, stop feeding oil to the accident tank and immediately pour the tank; this station will increase the external transport capacity. Take the time to recover the ground crude oil to prevent the pollution from expanding.
