API 653 and Storage Tabnk Inspection

API 653 provides the owner-user a fair amount of latitude re: the extent of inspection that is done on aboveground atmospheric storage tanks. I'm curious how folks have used their local experience to come up with the extent of inspection that is actually done on particular tank shells and bottoms, and how they prioritize which tanks are inspected and when. Any info. that could be shared would be appreciated. Thanks.

Certain criteria regarding above ground storage tanks will prompt an owner user to the extent of the inspection performed on the tank shell and bottom, including age, service, previous inspection and repair history, compliance of tank with 653 criteria, etc.
Please call if you would like to discuss. Alex Romanow Jr. HMT Inspection & Engineering 403-252-4487

Equipment such as floorscanners can allow calculation of corrosion rates with other general NDT
