Tips for Oil Tank Removal

How long have oil tanks been used?

Oil tanks have been used since 1859 when oil was discovered. What started as wooden barrels grew to meet the needs of the oil industry and soon were constructed of metal. The first steel storage tanks were constructed in the late 1800s once companies realized how much of their "black gold" was escaping.

Soon after, in 1922, a third-party testing facility developed the first standards for steel storage tank safety.

In 1988, the EPA set a deadline for implementing new tank safety regulations. Since the 1990s, more and more people have decided to close and remove their tanks due to the widely-known environmental and health risks.
