What is Aboveground Storage Tank Inspection?

A process that adheres to a standard developed by the American Petroleum Institute (API) to offer a set of guidelines to inspect and repair aboveground storage tanks used in the chemical and petroleum industry. One of the applicable standards is API-653, which our experienced personnel have utilized since the inception of the certification program.
