When to Plan the Expansion of Bulk Plants

Home > The Keystone Blog > Oilfield Fabrication Blog > When to Plan the Expansion of Bulk Plants

If you’ve already got bulk plants as part of your oilfield setup, you know they require specific maintenance in order to keep your oil and gas stored properly and ready for distribution. Depending on the size and scope of your operation, however, there may come a time when you need to plan an expansion of your bulk plants.

When to Plan the Expansion of Bulk Plants

Here are a few things to consider as you look at your current outfit:

  1. Age & Condition of Existing Plant – One of the first things you might want to think about when it comes to expanding bulk plants is the age and condition of the existing equipment. Even if you’ve met the inspection and safety standards on your current equipment for some time, eventually these types of equipment need to be retired. If you have aging bulk plant equipment, you may want to think about adding new tanks to ensure your operation continues smoothly.
  2. Upgrades to Bulk Plant Equipment – There are constant improvements to bulk plants and other oilfield fabrication that could make a difference in your ability to operate effectively. An upgrade to your existing equipment could help you meet regulatory standards or ensure that you can continue operations more efficiently going forward.
  3. More Product – High demand is a good problem to have! If you’ve noticed that you are ready to grow your business, but your bulk plants can’t keep up, it may be time for an expansion, so you have the proper capacity based on demand.
