LOOP owns and operates a large, modern tank facility at Clovelly, Louisiana. The LOOP tanks are 50 feet (15 meters) in height and 315 feet (95 meters) in diameter. Each tank holds up to 600,000 barrels of crude oil. Fifteen tanks are currently in service. There is room to build additional tanks of various sizes on adjacent tracts of land to meet customer needs.
Above ground tanks make it possible to segregate specialty grades of crude oil for our customers. Customers with unique requirements can isolate their supplies and protect the quality specifications of the crude oil being sent to refineries. The tanks have floating roofs and efficient “drain dry” bottoms, which allows them to be fully emptied and handle varying grades of crude oil.
