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. Current construction will expand the tank facility to approximately 10 million barrels of crude oil storage.
LOOP is building seven tanks which will be 50 feet (15 meters) in height and 243 feet (74 meters). Each new tank will hold up to 375,000 barrels of crude oil. 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 sent to refineries. The tanks have floating roofs and efficient bottoms, allowing them to be emptied and handle varying grades of crude oil.
