Generally speaking, the safety of diesel is good, but we can’t ignore the flammable and combustible. So the layout of diesel tank in the oil tank area need consider the flammable, combustible, electrification and volatility of the diesel. So we should consider these factors:

1. The ground oil tank zone should according to terrian condition layout to compare the stevedoring place of high zone. The distance of oil tank between diesel library and other constructions should confirm national regulation.


2.The gradient of the oil tank terrace should keep in 0.01, the slope towards to outlet sluice or water seal well. The ground surface shouldn’t have fissure and scallops, the fissure should be tamped, the Sedimentation seam should be tamped and trowelling by asbestos cement to prevent water seepage, oil seepage and oil gas accumulate.

3. The oil tank of diesel library shoud layout according to these follows: Firstly, the ground oil tank shouldn’t put in the same tank group with underound oil tank. Secondly, the total capacity of oil tank set, when the fixed-roof oil tank -single tank capacity less tan or equal to 50000 stere, the total capacity shouldn’t bigger than 100000 stere.

4. Tank field fire dike. The ground oil tand and half underground oil tank should set fire dike.

5.The fire restance rating of light oil tank shouldn’t below 2 class, other oil tank can’t below 3 class. Between the oil tank should be the no fire floor. The mutual distance of the pouring column.
