Large gas tanks
The eight large tanks are manufactured by the Belgian company G&G International. The tanks are all 38.5 metres long, have a diameter of 8.5 metres and a volume of 1,850 m3 and weigh as much as 290 tonnes a piece. In total, the eight tanks will provide storage capacity for 12,000 m3 liquefied gas.
The tanks will be used to store butane and propane gas prior to shipping, as well as to temporarily store 'off-gas' - ie gas not compliant with the propane and butane specifications. We are expanding the crude oil terminal in Fredericia, so it will be ready when the Hejre field becomes operational in the Danish part of the North Sea.
