Course Description

API 620 is a standard for large, field-assembled storage tanks that contain petroleum intermediates (gases or vapors) and finished products, as well as other liquid products commonly handled and stored by the various branches of the industry. 

This course helps the candidates to learn the depths of this standard and become a competent applicator of API 620. 

The candidates will be able to match up the standard with field application via visuals of manufactured tanks and tank details. it will be easier for candidates to understand the logic of the standard with calculation examples. Also, experiments and key point will be shared with the candidates during the course.
